Two Pillars

What is iQUAVIS?


…. an intuitive software for product development

…. a tool for successful systems engineering

…. a tool for integrated project management

…. ideal for making your development projects even more successful

…. MBSE = Architecting + Project Management according to ISO/IEC 15288

Are you familiar with complex projects in product development, like punching machines, sorting systems, driverless transport systems, heat pumps, etc.?

Do you always have a complete and consistent overview of requirements, product architecture, features and your documents?

With iQUAVIS, the product development is based on the system architecture, which brings more transparency and more time for innovation. With an easy-to-conceive license structure.

iQUAVIS means more digitization for your company – in the phase of the project that is crucial for a digital twin, the smart factory or basic work according to lean principles.

What can you achieve with iQUAVIS?

Requirements management and product specification are considered in an integrated manner at iQUAVIS. This also enables early project management and quality management. iQUAVIS – this originally means QUAlity VISualisiation. Now it’s time for Systems Engineering!

Together with the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft from Paderborn, iQUAVIS was developed into a real system engineering tool that uses MBSE models. It doesn’t matter whether it’s structure diagrams, behavioral diagrams or task planning. With this approach, you digitize the fuzzy frontend of product development.


iQUAVIS - selected functions

iQUAVIS is a lightweight systems engineering platform that can be individually configured to meet your requirements. After a short training, you will be able to operate and configure the tool on your own! Of course, we accompany the entire MBSE implementation process and are still there for your questions, but our goal is for you to be able to work independently with iQUAVIS. From the multitude of functions, we present a few here.

You will learn everything about iQUAVIS and whether it is the right tool for your goals in a free initial consultation – we look forward to your inquiry!

Home Screen
The home screen organizes your daily work. Here you can see which projects you are involved in, which tasks are pending and, for example, how far your personal progress is.
Model hierarchy
The hierarchy of your product becomes visible simply by dragging and dropping: Drag a submodule as a block into a new module – the structure and affiliation change automatically in the model and thus in all views.
Block Diagrams
Block diagrams are the classic view in the system description: function block diagrams, structure diagrams, ... With the diagrams, iQUAVIS creates a unique understanding of the system. You don't have to create ports separately – all this happens automatically in the background for you.
iQUAVIS stands for Quality Visualization – the well-structured method configurator enables you to create FMEAs that are sure to inspire the TÜV. The highlight: Tasks are defined directly in the FMEA and assigned to those responsible. FMEA according to AIAG & VDA is just as possible as the consideration of your company specifications.
Activity Diagrams
Activity diagrams describe the timing of functions in a system. Connectors are used to put functions in a logical order, branches are displayed and parallel processes are synchronized again.
The method configurator in iQUAVIS enables the best DRBFM: The method developed by Toyota in the tool that is also used by Toyota. In the meantime, Toyota's DRBFM is required by many suppliers.
Relationship types
iQUAVIS can use a configurator to define the relationship types that are important for your product – and has them ready for easy reuse. Material flows, energy flows, information flows – the classics of mechatronics, concretized for your application. Example of a template: Electrical voltage EU (230 V, 50 Hz) and for your US products Electrical voltage USA (120 V, 60 Hz).
Method configurator
Supplier – Input – Process – Output – Customer ... SIPOC from the Six Simga.This is exactly how you can define your methods individually in iQUAVIS. Supply and input come from the product architecture. Mathematical operations are also possible, e.g. for the calculation of the RPN in the FMEA.
in iQUAVIS you can define arbitrary views according to ISO/IEC 42010 (Systems and Software Engineering – Architecture Description). Both for themselves and in the sense of a framework for the organization. The so-called Model Kinds, with which you can switch between tree structures, diagrams, tables and matrices as you wish, are helpful.
Process time calculator
In the concept phase, define processes in a structured manner, identify bottlenecks in the machine concept and eliminate them directly. Instead of complex templates in Excel, iQUAVIS offers an intuitive interface for planning critical processes, which you can also coordinate directly with your customer.
Impact analysis
Changes, e.g. due to new requirements, can be quickly estimated: Which functions and components are affected, how hard is the impact? Indirect effects are also analyzed and easily visualized through smart forward-backward expansion.
A method to easily capture and analyze complex dependencies in your product. In no time at all, you can define, for example, which requirements can be realized by which functions. The matrices can be defined flexibly and use the iQUAVIS database.

A first look at the tool - iQUAVIS

The core of iQUAVIS is simple system modeling – without visible SysML. Just like in an Office application, you can model complex products easily and intuitively – without having to understand the depths of a complicated modeling language. The modelling of product hierarchies and product structures via trees – incl. of the necessary connections – also helps you with the setup and management of your project: use of resources, tracking of tasks, issue tracking and communication without detours via e-mails or Skype – directly in iQUAVIS! Block diagrams (e.g. environment or active structure) support the static description of the system, various behavior diagrams address the dynamic aspects. You work on a database and can use it to analyze the complex relationships in worksheets. A full-fledged project management incl. Connection to Microsoft Teams also makes iQUAVIS an agile tool.
