Welcome to the HIPARSYS Website
This research is part of a large-scale multi-disciplinary and
multi-organisation programme, whose common theme is that of
High Performance and Robust Systems (HIPARSYS).
High performance systems need to be highly optimised to meet their
demanding requirements. However there is currently a paradox in
achieving robust systems that also have high levels of performance and
innovation, which are essential for competitiveness. Design
Simulation and Modelling (DSM) of components and systems is key to
resolving this paradox and optimising performance with reliability and
risk. However, to fully tackle this issue and achieve reduced time
scales, DSM also needs to be extended to the organisations and processes
that produce the systems. Therefore, this research seeks to apply DSM to components, systems and
Support for this research project is provided by the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI). If you wished to learn more about this project, please refer to the Overview section for more details.
