List, a CEA Tech institute, has earned an international reputation for its know-how in model-based engineering. List partners can put model-based engineering to work for their systems and software engineering projects.
List has set up a
model-based engineering environment, Papyrus, for complex-systems design.
Model-based engineering leverages the power of computing to create and exploit
models, conceptual representations, and languages to describe both a problem
and its solution. Papyrus is based on the commonly-used shared languages UML
for software and SysML for systems. It can also be modified to take into
account the issues specific to different industries like transportation, healthcare,
manufacturing, and energy, or targeted concerns like safety, security, and
Researchers at List
recently worked with Auto Inergy, a division of Plastic Omnium, the world’s
leading fuel systems producer, to introduce a tool-based software and systems
engineering method to replace the company’s document-based approach. The
purpose of the project was to improve product quality and speed time to market.
And Sherpa Engineering,
a SME specializing in systems design in a number of industries, turned to List
to boost its systems engineering know-how and access IT tools that will enable
the company to provide its customers with high-added-value services.
List researchers are also
working to deliver the same benefits to partners in the automotive, rail,
telecommunications, and advanced manufacturing industries.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
