MapleSim Explorer, part of Maplesoft’s recently released MapleSim 2017 system-level modeling software, is a new “cost-effective deployment solution” that enables product development organizations to ”make the knowledge embedded in their MapleSim models available to more people,” the company says. MapleSim Explorer “powers informed decision making throughout the organization” by helping systems modeling leads within engineering organizations “make the knowledge embedded in their MapleSim models available to other engineers to support informed decision making.”
This new advance in the democratization of model-based systems engineering (MBSE) follows on the company’s release this past summer of MapleMBSE, which helps engineers create, maintain and validate product requirements efficiently and with fewer errors—a technological breakthrough that, in our view, for the first time lets engineering organizations adopt an MBSE approach to requirements management without forcing every engineer on the project to be an expert in complex MBSE tools.

MapleSim: Advanced system-level physical modeling and simulation platform
MapleSim is an advanced system-level modeling tool suite that enables innovation and reduces development risk, allowing engineering organizations to create better products, faster. With MapleSim, engineers can easily create virtual models, now more and more referred to as Digital Twins, before the product design is finalized, allowing them to explore conceptual designs, discover and correct unexpected interactions between subsystems early in the design process, validate product performance, and more. Now, with the easy way to share and explore models offered by MapleSim Explorer, engineering organizations can avoid overloading their systems modeling experts with requests that do not require modeling expertise, while still getting the answers they need, Maplesoft says.
MapleSim Explorer lets more people run simulations of any MapleSim model
The MapleSim Explorer runs simulations of any MapleSim model, and allows users to change model parameters, investigate and plot any model variables, view 2D simulations results and 3D simulation animations, and analyze the model using built-in MapleSim Apps such as Parameter Sweep, Optimization, and Monte Carlo.
“A lot of engineering knowledge gets embedded in Digital Twins and other virtual models, but it’s difficult to get that valuable information out to everyone who needs it, when only modeling experts can access the model,” says Dr. Chad Schmitke, MapleSim Senior Director at Maplesoft. “With the MapleSim Explorer, organizations can make their MapleSim models available to more people, so they can leverage the engineering knowledge contained in the model and get the answers that will help them make better decisions, quickly and efficiently.”
The MapleSim Explorer is a complementary deployment solution to the MapleSim Server. The MapleSim Explorer is a standalone product that provides individuals with direct access to MapleSim models and simulation results. By comparison, the MapleSim Server allows engineers to explore MapleSim models through interactive web applications, using only a standard web browser.
