Abstract [en]

An efficient methodology for verification, validation, and credibility assessment of simulation models and simulator applications is an enabler for the aeronautical industrys increasing reliance on modeling and simulation in system design and verification and on training. As a complement to traditional document-centric approaches, this paper presents a method for credibility assessment of simulator applications, in which credibility information is presented to end users directly during simulation. The central idea is that each model in a simulator is extended with a metamodel describing different aspects of credibility. The metamodel includes a number of static credibility measures and a dynamic measure that may vary during simulation. The concept is implemented and tested in two system simulators for the Saab Gripen fighter aircraft. According to the evaluation, the concept facilitates an intuitive overview of model dependencies, as well as credibility information for individual models and for a simulator as a whole. This implies a support for detecting test plan deficiencies or that a simulator configuration is not a suitable platform for the execution of a particular test. Furthermore, model developers and end users are encouraged to reflect upon central credibility aspects like intended use, model fidelity, and test worthiness in their daily work.

Abstract [en]

Designing modern aircraft is not an easy task. Today, it is not enough to optimize aircraft sub-systems at a sub-system level. Instead, a holistic approach is taken whereby the constituent sub-systems need to be designed for the best joint performance. The State-of-the-Art (SotA) in simulating and exchanging simulation models is moving forward at a fast pace. As such, the feasible use of simulation models has increased and additional benefits can be exploited, such as analysing coupled sub-systems in simulators. Furthermore, if aircraft sub-system simulation models are to be utilized to their fullest extent, opensource tooling and the use of open standards, interoperability between domain specific modeling tools, alongside robust and automated processes for model Verification and Validation (V&V) are required.

The financial and safety related risks associated with aircraft development and operation require well founded design and operational decisions. If those decisions are to be founded upon information provided by models and simulators, then the credibility of that information needs to be assessed and communicated. Today, the large number of sensors available in modern aircraft enable model validation and credibility assessment on a different scale than what has been possible up to this point. This thesis aims to identify and address challenges to allow for automated, independent, and objective methods of integrating sub-system models into simulators while assessing and conveying the constituent models aggregated credibility.

The results of the work include a proposed method for presenting the individual models’ aggregated credibility in a simulator. As the communicated credibility of simulators here relies on the credibility of each included model, the assembly procedure itself cannot introduce unknown discrepancies with respect to the System of Interest (SoI). Available methods for the accurate simulation of coupled models are therefore exploited and tailored to the applications of aircraft development under consideration. Finally, a framework for automated model validation is outlined, supporting on-line simulator credibility assessment according to the presented proposed method.
