Periodic Seminar on "Effective System Integration"
6, Jun, 2019
Laerte Oliveira, a visiting researcher from the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA) in Brazil, gave a talk on "Effective System Integration".
After highlighting the importance of the integration stage in the development process of complex systems, Laerte presented a solution for typical problems encountered in this stage. Specifically, he suggested the improvement of the planning stage by proposing a twelve-topic methodology.
In this scope, SIVOR, an aircraft simulator developed at Embraer and partitioned into several sub-systems (motion, cockpit, visual and supervisory), was used as use-case to demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed approach.
Laerte presented relevant aspects of the work he conducted during his stay at CISTER. Notably, he provided insights of his contribution in the FLEGIXY project and the VORTEX CoLab.
Laerte was a System Engineer and Technical Manager at Embraer for 35 years. He received a B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering in 1980 and a M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2017, both from the Aeronautical Technology Institute – ITA, Brazil.
His experience involves the airplanes’ complete development cycle and his research interests include, but is not limited to: Systems Engineering processes and applications, Avionics integration, and Model Based Development Engineering.
