The PSG System of R&D Innovation is a combination of systems engineering and software development tools that create a collaborative life-cycle management environment. This environment provides the systems engineering tooling for early concept design, architecture and requirements management. In addition, the System of R&D Innovation is equipped with software design and development tools in the same environment. This combination allows for seamless transition from early design directly into software development.
Also included in the System of R&D Innovation is the System of Systems Analysis Application (SoSAA). SoSAA allows for early modeling and simulation of complex architectures and the ability to quantitatively characterize system performance that supports early design decisions. The goal is to understand performance early before entering into costly software development stages of the life-cycle.
