How MADe works

MADe is a model based technology – where each block in the model is associated with key attributes / parameters including the functional description, failure information, criticality of each (cause, mechanism, fault, symptoms), etc.

MADe can be used to model the functional requirements of a platform of a design (at all stages in the design process) or for legacy equipment. As the design matures to the point where specific equipment is identified, indenture levels can be added to the model for the systems, sub-systems, assemblies, components and parts (if required for analysis).

The ability to rapidly generate or update the system model means that it is possible to introduce configuration management of the analysis process – particularly difficult to achieve with spreadsheet based tools.
