Model-based development is the soul of our company. The
models are often built from first principles and verified to include
the important aspects of the phenomena of interest. By building the
models on the basis of physical laws several benefits are gained:
performance of the control systems will be increased,
robustness will be achieved in a wider range of process
conditions as good first principle models are valid in
a broader context than empirical ones,
time to market is shortened as the need for
patching will be reduced,
building blocks that based on first principles can
be reused in other applications (which means that already
verified portions of code can be used to build new
and most importantly, maintenance will be much easier as
the number of model parameters will be very small.
We work customer function oriented and with system safety in mind.
The function is what the customer pays for in the end. Not the
system that is only an embodiment of the function. A function perspective
is also of great importance for system safety analysis.
