AN APPROACH FOR ASSESSING DESIGN SYSTEMS - Design System Simulation and Analysis for Performance Assessment

Richard Sohnius, Eyck Jentzsch, Wolf-Ekkehard Matzke, Vadim Ermolayev

Abstract

This position paper presents our work in assessing engineering design systems in the field of microelectronics with respect to their performance and, more specifically, to productivity. Current mainstream process assessment systems show deficiencies of the representation and analysis when dealing with dynamic, self-optimizing processes. To overcome this, a project called PRODUKTIV+ has been created with the goal to develop a new approach. This approach is to create a model of a design system and simulate the colaborative behavior of the involved engineers using a system of cooperating, intelligent software agents. The assessment of a design system is then done based on the detailed simulation results.
