System Engineering Environments

Participants : Robert de Simone, Julien Deantoni, Frédéric Mallet, Marie-Agnès Peraldi Frati.

In the case of Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems, the cyber/digital design of discrete controlers is only a part of a larger design process, we other aspects of the physical environment need to be condidered as well, involving constraints and requirements on the global system (people even talk of Systems of Systems. Dedicated environments are now being defined, also considering system life-cycle and component reuse in this larger setting, under the name of Atelier Génie Système (in French). Such efforts usually involve large industrial end-users, together with software houses of tool vendors, and academic partners altogether. An instance of such environment is the Cappella (open-source, Eclipse) environment, promoted by the Clarity project and its associated consortium .
