Abstract:

This report discusses important CAE software features required in the application of CAE software for TPS development. It also identifies an application method of CAE software to generate TPS information, and lays the groundwork for identifying a CAE software application method for the Designated Government Acceptance Representatives evaluation of the TPS design. The report discusses the application of computer Aided Engineering CAE tools for the TPS development process, CAE software selection criteria, and evaluation recommendations for CAE tools. All TPS development tasks, from schematic entry to ATLAS code generation, are discussed and partially documented using the SRA under study. Optimum CAE environment capabilities and features are identified for maximum TPS engineering productivity and efficiency. Study results to data indicate that a total CAE approach for TPS development demonstrates great potential in TPS development productivity, efficiency, and quality. The analog simulator, Saber, is recommended as the analog simulation software because of the simulators fault simulation and simulator modelling language capabilities. These capabilities allow the TPS engineer to generate an analog fault dictionary, which is an essential element to TPS development. Further recommendations are to select a CAE environment and the accompanying CAE software for TPS development.
