The Role and Limitations of Modeling and Simulation in Systems Design

  title={The Role and Limitations of Modeling and Simulation in Systems Design},
  author={Jason Matthew Aughenbaugh},
To design today’s complex, multi-disciplinary systems, designers need a design method that allows them to systematically decompose a complex design problem into simpler sub-problems. Systems engineering provides such a framework. In an iterative, hierarchical fashion systems are decomposed into subsystems and requirements are allocated to these subsystems based on estimates of their attributes. In this paper, we investigate the role and limitations of modeling and simulation in this process of… CONTINUE READING
