Change Efficiency for Cost-Effective Simulation Smart Displays

Pocket change

It’s a safe guess that over a million words have been written on the subject of managing change. A quick look on Amazon.com reveals over 2700 books from the terms.  But a search of the same site for “change efficiency” shows only 459 books on the subject.

But efficiency of making changes is clearly something that we should be concerned about!

For Flight Simulator manufacturers, change activities include Change Requests, Repurposing and Reconfiguration. Change Requests come from either the airframer or the end customer. Repurposing a display system for a different cockpit or function is desirable as a cost saving measure. The ability to reconfigure the cockpit for various training scenarios or different revision model aircraft provides tremendous advantages to both manufacturers and end users.

VueSim™ is the best choice for managing cockpit simulator display changes.

 

Change Requests

VueSim was designed to be used by cockpit designers and technicians. Changes to the graphics or signaling of the display can be implemented as needed by the people directly involved with the design of the Simulator. Waiting on the Software Engineering group or the display OEM to implement Change Requests can take too much time and can delay delivery. The VueSim tools are easy to use and its files are text-based, making changes trackable through Configuration Management Systems.

 

Reconfiguration

The VueSim display can hold thousands of display configurations. Reconfiguring the display is simply a matter of issuing a “select” command to the display. Once selected, the configuration remains active through power cycles. What if your engineering department decides to change the core simulator (say from an internally developed system to a commercial sim)? With VueSim, changing the simulator source is easy with Author’s two-step signal definition.

 

Repurpose

Using an OEM flight display for a cockpit typically means that the display is usable only for the original purpose of the simulator (maybe). With VueSim, refurbishment of a cockpit system no longer requires manufacturers to discard the display hardware. Obsolescence becomes obsolete!
