High performance systems need to be highly optimised to meet their demanding requirements. However there is currently a paradox in achieving robust systems (insensitive to variation in their manufacture and environment) that also have the high levels of performance and innovation, essential for competitiveness. Design Simulation and Modelling (DSM) of components and systems is key to resolving this HIPARSYS paradox and optimising performance with reliability and risk. However, to fully tackle this issue and achieve reduced time scales, DSM also needs to be extended to the organisations and processes that produce the systems. The organisation needs to be considered part of the system, and itself needs to be made high performing and robust. This multi-industrial sector and multi-disciplinary team will therefore seek to apply DSM to components, systems and organisations.
