System Architecture is one of the first steps in the creation of an embedded system. It is the most important step to ensure success in meeting system goals and objectives. The System Architecture process requires research, collaboration, innovation, and experience to lay the foundation for the design and implementation of an embedded system.
The system architecture process should define the object or objects of the. This defines the building blocks for the significant subjects of the system. Each building block can be decomposed into smaller subsystems. It is important to define the interaction of the objects with other systems and the external environment Furthermore, the process should characterize the lifecycle of the system. For example, the lifecycle consists of design, prototyping, testing, manufacturing, distribution, and maintenance. The lifecycle objective provides strategy for architecture and design.
The system architecture should establish the interfaces of the system which is used to support the modeling of system. The modeling should consider various levels of abstraction and layers describing concepts such as “why”, “what”, and “how”. Should describe the properties, structure, data, states, and behavior. Should convey this information from various points of view.
Ferguson Control Systems offers services to support or perform the system architecture process. Our team members have years of experience from previous safety-critical programs and can use this experience to help achieve success. We can work embedded within your organization for support or perform system architecture and deliver artifacts and recommendations.
