Work using a shared system representation

With e1ns.aspects, developers use a visual representation to design a system / product. The intuitive and systematic approach of e1ns.aspects automatically builds the system structure, which is then used as a basis for all further activities in the product development process (PDP).

Different areas can work on a common system representation and extend the system model by adding various aspects. This means the functional, mechanical, electrical, or electronic behavior of the system, for example, are described at a central location that is accessible to everyone.

Transparent development processes, a common understanding of the system, and good cooperation in a network form the basis for fast and economical product development.

  • Different areas work on a common system representation.
  • Up-to-date data is always available.
  • Repeated tasks are avoided, and maintenance is minimized.

Why e1ns.aspects?

Easy to use

  • Simple, intuitive, and in the web browser.
  • The graphic interface displays all elements of a system.
  • Elements are created to build a system or existing elements are simply dragged into the interface and dropped at the desired location.
  • A system can be divided into any number of levels (additional worksheets).
  • Elements are connected if they depend on or have a mutual influence on each other.
  • A connection between elements can have properties (force, signal, ...).
  • Photos and images for the elements are displayed directly.

Collaboration in compliance with standards

  • The common system representation enables and promotes collaboration.
  • A graphical model offers project participants an easy introduction to the architecture of a system.
  • It can be started immediately, no modeling training is required.
  • A current systems engineering standard is used for the working method. SysML (Systems Modeling Language) is a standardized extension of UML (Unified Modeling Language) for modeling complex systems.

Aspect-oriented engineering

  • Any view of a system / element can be created to describe its behavior according to various aspects.
  • This means each engineering discipline can have the system representation it needs - mechanical, electronical, etc.
  • The central availability of all aspects simplifies decision processes in development.

Integration in the product development process

  • Modeled structures are automatically converted to a tree view.
  • The directory tree is used as the main product representation to conduct further analyses.
  • The people involved in the project operate based on the structure and provide the specifications (technical / functional specification), risk or hazard analyses, DVP&R's, etc., for example, depending on their area of responsibility.


Use and application

  • Visual creation and analysis of system designs
  • Modeling of system behavior
  • For requirements management purposes
  • Transparency in complex relationships
  • Uncomplicated operation using a web browser
  • Based on the SysML (System Modeling Language) standard
  • For use as a main project document and to ensure new project members can get up to speed quickly
  • Also suitable for the creation of block diagrams
