Solving the diagnostic problem

Logo icomod

Thank you for your interest in modelbased technologies, that may help you to solve also non-trivial diagnostic problems.

In [part 1] of the intro-video the question remained, which local component-faults could be an explanantion to the strange symptom-pattern on highest functional system-level, single or in combination.

To find out, the observations are simply assigned to the appropriate model-variables at the end of the functional chain - the actuators.
In the applied modeling approach there is no need to stick to a certain model-internal assumption of causality.

Simulating this "over-determined" system then leads to the following picture,
the so-called "conflict-path":

Conflict path of the system, after specifying top-symptoms and performing a simulation


How precisely are the root-causes automatically determined and which ones actually are the "guilty" ones?

Just click the picture to watch the video!

It shows the solution plus an outlook to some extra features of the technology​, like power flow analysis, mechatronical application, fault tree generation and FMEA support

The explanation-video is our thank-you for your interest, therefore the link is intended exclusively for you!

Would you like to share this content also with your colleagues, please ask them to first watch​ ​[part 1]​ by visiting the website and then also send us an SMS to request this part 2.


Feel free to send us your comments or questions, just by replying to the email that brought you here.
We'd like to support you in any activity to raise your system- and safety-engineering to a new level.

And to win more time for the important things in the system development process!

Please note:

The modeling technology ​is available already since many years and the video has been recorded ​with an earlier version of the tool. 
However, it still provides a good overview of the power and capabilities behind the approach and the tool.
Therefore we have decided to re-publish it again for you, for a limited time!
So just watch and enjoy.

And if you want to know more about modelbased technology that was already state-of-the-art 20 years ago, feel free to check some of the papers collected here.
