Engineering concept and design methodologies have been constantly evolving, in a never-ending effort to address different challenges present in many engineering processes: lack of traceability and inconsistencies in documentation, lack of communication and understanding in the team are only a few.
This paper discusses how modern day technology, such as a web-based software stack, could bring the ultimate solution to these issues, in the form of a fully integrated engineering platform, a living organism that is constantly updated and shared between all the actors involved in the design process. In particular, it is presented and discussed how a team of students reacted and performed when presented with a systems engineering challenge to be solved using web-based software to collaborate concurrently in a limited time frame.
Most companies in the space industry still use a document-based approach to engineering. Good data management is becoming more and more essential for engineering companies in the space industry. Data-Driven Systems Engineering (DDSE) is a novel method, which enables a wider spread of MBSE throughout the industry and allows for consistency of documentation. DDSE is a proposed solution that aims to enable model-based engineering on a practical level for space companies throughout the project lifecycle.

The analysis shows, why the classical approach of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) has not been able to fulfil the
needs of engineers across disciplines. An alternative solution to the problem is presented: A browser-based hardware
development tool stack as a bottom-up solution (Data Driven Engineering), which combines functionalities of different existing software solutions. (Paper / Presentation)
The study shows that new engineering tools need to be user-friendly and intuitive, handle automatic changes with notifications, include a version control system and have interfaces to other tools. The study shows that new engineering tools need to be user-friendly and intuitive, handle automatic changes with notifications, include a version control system and have interfaces to
other tools for efficient hardware development. (Poster)
The goal of Valispace’s attendance at ISSE Workshop was to share how modern web technologies can help engineers streamline their engineering processes and give practical insights into web-based tools. (Presentation)
This paper presents a novel, webbased systems engineering collaboration tool called Valispace, which is customized to
the current and future needs of the space industry. Increased project complexity, with an increasing number of teams
participating in a single project, demands for more efficient interteam and interdisciplinary collaboration. The practice
of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is already being adopted throughout the industry, but even with a well
defined systems engineering approach there are few collaboration tools that are in wide use. (Paper)
