64 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I FEBRUARY 2022 e more complex the system, the more likely it is to fail. Companies at the forefront of electronic sys- tems engineering understand this basic tenet of risk analysis. ey must face the many chal- lenges of rapidly developing markets and futur- istic products. Reaping the rewards of these new opportunities and innovations requires more complex products, processes, and, oen larger more complex organizations. Technology has not only increased the com- plexity of individual domains, but also the number of domains. And these complexities introduce a lot more risk of failures. ese include failure to meet delivery targets and system requirements, failure to achieve manu- facturing yield, and failure to function in the field and continue to do so over the expected life of a product. Electronic systems themselves are becoming more complex, not just at the individual board level, but at the subsystem and system levels as well, with multi-board designs becoming increasingly common. Furthermore, this com- plexity spills over to mechanical engineer- ing and manufacturing as all domains need to become more integrated and cohesive to move toward creating final products more efficiently and effectively. It's no longer possible to design the electronics without taking into consider- ation the other domains that come together to create that system—including the soware, mechanical, and electrical domains. All this brings new kinds of challenges. Com- plexity is no longer something we can look at as solving a single domain challenge. We must look at more sophisticated solutions that help us in a multi-domain context and help bring Managing Risk With Model-based Engineering Digital Transformation by David Wiens, SIEMENS EDA
