Safran rolls out software for complex system design
Thursday, 26 May 2022
More than 350 systems architects at Safran are already making good use of XATIS to reduce the number of product development cycles, and now the company intends to market the software to others.

Safran Engineering Services has released XATIS, its complex system design optimisation software, to the market. The software is tailored to assist systems architects in reducing the number of product development cycles, thanks to Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE).

XATIS is a software tool for modeling complex integrated systems, from the requirements gathering phase, through the specification stage and right up to the preliminary design. It is based on the CESAM modeling methodology, the aim of which is to manage complexity through graphic representations of the system from multiple complementary perspectives, in order to expand upon its conventional textual description.

XATIS is used for developing various architectures, comparing them and selecting the best one, taking into account the constraints of production engineering, operations, maintenance and decommissioning of the system. The ground-breaking aspect of the software is that it permits a collaborative architecture, in that it is based on the active contribution and co-ordination of all of the teams involved in the design of the new product. XATIS improves the monitoring of traceability links between the customer requirements and the technical solutions offered, thus providing greater knowledge of the impact analyses, should there be a change in requirements.

“XATIS is a tool designed by architects for architects! This is why we wanted it to be particularly intuitive, with a remarkably ergonomic interface and highly efficient modeling accelerators. In addition to this, it had interoperability capabilities and may be integrated into any existing design software platform”, explains Valentin Safir, president of Safran Engineering Services.

More than 350 systems architects at Safran are already making good use of the software, which is now established on the market as a proven and mature solution, that can be used in all sectors of activity. The company has developed a user support service offering and is continuing to develop its software with the addition of new functionalities.
