Solution Scheme Aircraft Overall Design Platform

Platform Focus
The Aircraft Overall Design Platform is designed to address problems in the conceptual and preliminary design phases of military or civil aircrafts.
It serves to coordinate data, methods and tools, people, processes, knowledge, and other factors involved in overall aircraft design based on professional
working requirements as well as methods and relations, arrangement, appearance, weight, aerodynamic design, aerodynamic characteristics,
performance, stability and control, load and static aero elasticity of the aircraft, etc. The purposeof the platform is to address:

l  Scattered professional data,insufficientdata sharing,non-uniquedata sources, and difficult cross-profession design collaboration;
l  Lack of theme guidingthe design process,roughand non-standardinterdisciplinary relations,and difficult iterative optimization and tracking;

l  Complicated professional tools, incompatible methods and tools, low degree of technology reuse, and inefficient aircraft design;
l  Lack of unified management and integrated means to support communication and coordination, which leads to inconsistent information and
unclear responsibilities;
l  Failure to accumulate, manage, and share aircraft design knowledge.

Solution Scheme
SYSWARE, supported by multidisciplinary experts and engineering field consultants, improves the aircraft’s overall design process and knowledge
integration through an engineering design method that is “based on the knowledge component.” Using its middleware platform,
SYSWARE also serves as a provider of the aircraft overall design system and expanded knowledge components.

The solution toaircraft overall design
involves four major parts: the design data center, design process management system,integrated design environment and professional modules,
and knowledge support library.
(1)     Design data center

As the ultimate destination of data produced from the design of aircraft models during design phases, and as the sole source of data, the center, with
input from all professions involved in design phases,manages design data in a structured, hierarchical,and unified way according to model, phase,
round, plan, profession, and data type.
(2)     Design process management system:

The system manages the design process by combining task decomposition with a flexible working process.
(3)     Integrated design environment & professional modules:

The integrated design environment provides a client side for the whole platform system and an integration interface for many kinds of design software. It
also enables the packaging of professional methods and the operation of professional modules. In this environment, a total of 14 professions with
157 program modules are developed, and 82 programs and software are accounted for in the environment via integration, partial integration, or plug-in,
which enables rapid design and optimization of military/civil aircrafts.
(4)     Knowledge support library:

The library effectively collects and manages knowledge of aircraft design and data of historical models, and supports aircraft research and development
through knowledge retrieval, among other means.
