When applied at the very earliest stages of a project, Digital Systems Engineering not only facilitates better design but helps identify and eliminate risks that might arise later down the line – offering greater predictability of building performance, price and program.
Digital systems are designed to store, process, and communicate information in digital form. They are found in a wide range of applications, including process control, communication systems, digital instruments, and consumer products. The digital computer, more commonly called the computer, is an example of a typical digital system.
Digital Systems Engineering supports greater collaboration and more informed decision-making by providing a central data source. This helps create more unified delivery teams, while allowing the supply chain to see beyond their own activities to a more holistic view of the client’s objectives.
Digital Engineering provides one place to document, save, and store the rationale for changes or updates to a requirement with notes, conversations, and background information. This provides immediate access to system information for current and future efforts.
Also, Digital Systems Engineering increases visibility and analytical capability as well as capture and transfer SME (subject matter expert) knowledge.
As legacy programs move into digital environments, SMEs are critical in knowledge transfer. When a program relies solely on paper artifacts and has limited SME availability to shed light on assumptions and ambiguities, there can be major issues when transferring to a digital environment.
Additionally, fundamental to achieving true Digital Systems Engineering is having the right blend of technical and cultural platforms. An inclusive environment based on openness, cooperation and knowledge-sharing must be underpinned by consistent processes and access points, allowing everyone involved in a project to navigate freely around the model and explore the data.
