5-step plan to get started with or improve MBSE capabilities

In Anzen we are at the forefront of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Model Based Safety Analysis (MBSA).

The introduction of digital tools into the engineering process of complex systems has enabled significant enhancements all along the design and production phases of such products. One of the paradigms of the new methodologies being implemented is the centralized source of information to gather the data needed along the product lifecycle. Another paradigm of these modern methodologies is the automated verification; implementing queries and tests to verify that the system complies with the objectives set by the different stakeholders.
Leveraging on digital technologies, the state-of-the-art tools being used in the industry allow to master the flows of information between stakeholders, resulting in an overall gain of quality and a reduction of human effort in engineering tasks.

Our MBSE&MBSA solutions consists of a methodology and a combination of tools implementing a model-based engineering approach to develop complex safety-critical systems, from the conceptual design up to the final verifications. Based on the two aforementioned paradigms; our method extends the architectural model of the system with a new perspective that allows to introduce the safety data and to run automated analysis aligned with the typical normative standards.

Step Tasks and activities

Gap Analysis

  • Trade-off analysis covering a variety of digital tools to select the most appropriate set that fits the users’ needs across different disciplines: systems engineering and architecting, modeling and simulation, requirements and traceability…
  • Analysis of different systems engineering frameworks and adaptation to the internal company processes


  • Toolset selection and implementation attending to users’ needs
  • Adaptation of methods and workflows to achieve interoperability across tools
  • Training and upskilling

Modeling & Simulation

  • Framework implementation (Arcadia, OOESEM, UAF…)
  • Modeling complex systems, from mission description and operational concept to systems and subsystems architectures, logical and physical components and states machines
  • Simulation of operational concept and failure scenarios


  • Support to system-safety and reliability analysis
  • IT support, maintenance and tool upgrades


Our tool ATICA aims at collecting all the Safety and Reliability related data in a unique platform shared with systems engineers ensuring consistency across the design and verification processes of complex systems. ATICA works in several layers:
Product architecture
System and subsystem
Each layer collects the necessary information, both high and low level, considering the project requirements in order to collect the required evidence and produce the demonstrations needed by end users and authorities to get an aerospace certification.

ATICA provides solutions along the whole V-Cycle, making the development phase easier and reducing development costs. It also keeps the end-to-end traceability, making systems-safety analysis simpler.
