White Goods market is marked out by strong competition, rapid product life cycle and continuously growing complexity and innovation.
DOFWARE supports Customers for the definition of both Model-Based Design and multi-physical modelling toolchain and automated tests and documentation editing, always according to corresponding regulations.
Internet of Things concept applied to single devices and domotics need ever larger and cross expertise for designing highly complex multi-domain systems. In this framework System Engineering approach enables to achieve a high-level technological quality rapidly. Actually virtual development coupled with automated validation and verification has become mandatory.
Requirement Engineering techniques allow a formal interpretation of requirements coming from market surveys.
The availability of SysML-based functional schemes and the ability to simulate product behavior in the early stages of design decrease time and cost.
Model-Based Design allows to design complex multi-domain systems efficiently, and to simulate a wide range of operating conditions. These are all operations that must be compliant with reference standards (e.g. 2009/125/CE) for what concerns product validation and verification
Physical Modelling allows to build mathematical moke-ups able to simulate system behavior in time. DOFWARE uses Modelica / Dymola for 0D/1D simulations and CFD / FEM tools for detailed 3D analysis in order to get high-quality results.
Some examples of supported application fields are:
Embedded Control and IoT Development
Control algorithm implementation requires accurate physical models, tools able to support integrated development and an automated framework assuring traceability of the entire design process. For “Functional Safety” control algorithms such as those of White Goods field, regulations are extremely strict and require that the development process is traceable, verifiable and well documented.
DOFWARE provides efficient and innovative solutions for designers thanks to its tools and expertise, such as:
