System Simulation Governance

Simulation is used by all major industries and its utilization is typically intended for accelerating engineering and for improving early stage decision making. A lot of different simulation approaches are elaborated and implemented by tools in a volatile market, and used by companies. This turns out that simply using simulation in product development, production and operation is not the differentiator between companies anymore.


What truly matters is how smartly simulations are being used by companies to achieve a significant advantage in order to deliver competitive products and services to customers. Recent innovation activities and discussions are centered about governance and management actions for modelling and simulation, with a special focus on domain-specific problem solving. This Simulation governance approach has to be extended for system-level considerations and distributed, virtual system development where simulation processes, methods and tools reliability are strictly needed – which can be ensured by System Simulation Governance.

Our approach

Quantification of quality for all modelling and simulation artefacts is introduced by manual or automated assessment. The essential brick is then represented by the coordinated provision and aggregation of artefacts during simulation development and utilization. This is being achieved in 3 steps:

1. Definition of a simulation readiness level and the according collaboration process

2. Continuous collaboration by integrating and exchanging agreed data quality

3. Presentation of robust artefact traceability via a chained digital signature

The real value of simulation can ultimately be achieved by proving the quality via a kind of DNA. This DNA enables the IPR-protected distribution of development artefacts, unleashing distributed and collaborative virtual system development.

With VIRTUAL VEHICLEs approach, models and simulations become of real value and thus represent a competitive differentiator between companies and industries. Therefore, the key factors for success are how smartly collaboration is done and system simulation is being used by companies – System Simulation Governance does that in a convincible and traceable way, providing sufficient evidence.
