Simulation based design methodologies have the potential to streamline the development and continuous improvement of complex products by addressing three fundamental aspects of team-based product development initiatives: coordination, collaboration, and optimization. On-going research funded by the Office of Naval Research is seeking to augment its baseline simulation based design environment with enhanced system integration, visualization, and optimization capabilities that address these three aspects of the product development process. The inherent strengths of the existing software environment are being leveraged to support the development of these enhanced capabilities including Multi-Disciplinary Optimization methodologies that will enable the rapid convergence on high payoff system alternatives.
