Managing complexity

BATS has developed a modern engineering approach to support customers for a successful development of their solutions.

The fundamental Systems Engineering activities are balanced by feedback techniques and tools and listed below:


  • Requirements Analysis
  • Functional Analysis
  • System Analysis
  • System Design
  • System Development
  • System Production
  • System Integration
  • System Verification, Test
  • System Qualification, Validation
  • System Operation, Commissioning and Deployment.

This methodology is a step-by-step approach covering the following key phases:

  • Thorough analysis with end-users of the mission, local context and organisation
  • Detailed site survey
  • System and sub-systems engineering specifications
  • Fine selection of the components such as sensors types
  • Pilot network implementation for field testing with future operators of the system
  • Operational support to end-users

A systems engineering management plan and a configuration management procedure are part of this methodology also.
