Abstract

This project looks at the issues involved in the creation of a systems engineering environment that can develop, manage and assess large, complex systems without passing that complexity on to the user. Existing methods have several deficiencies, particularly in regard to the assessment of the risks associated with a proposed system and the visualisation of the intentions of its design. The environment will provide a complete, visual simulation of any view of a system at any level of detail, driven by the information contained in and managed by a system representation. Approved changes made to (and on the basis of) the visualisation would be reflected in the representation and result in an updated system specification. 1 Introductio
