CDP4

The Concurrent Design Platform (CDP4TM) is a collaborative model-based engineering tool that enables a multidisciplinary team to collaboratively design and parametrize a complex system, verify requirements, perform calculations, execute analysis, and validate models in near-real time.

It provides a Desktop application, Microsoft Excel integration and single-source of truth application server where all the engineering data is stored and shared. Interoperability with other engineering tools is key, therefore CDP4TM is standards based and is compliant with ECSS-E-TM-10-25A and supports ReqIF. The desktop application and Microsoft Excel integration make use of CDP4TM plugins to provide end-user functionality such as requirements engineering, complex system modeling, python scripting integration and now also satsearch integration.

The CDP4TM Community Edition is distributed with an Open Source license making it free for everyone to use. The source code is available on GitHub.

The following video provides a short preview of the 'drag-and-drop' feature that the satsearch integration with CDP4TM offers.
