Artisan Studio is a standards-based, graphical,
systems and software engineering tool which,
in our view, caters well for large distributed
teams working on mission-critical and safetycritical
projects involving the integration of
software, hardware and human process.

However, in order to fully appreciate this tool,
it is important that its potential users understand
the concept of Systems Engineering (SE)
and how it differs from merely writing computer
programs. In essence, Systems Engineering
starts with understanding a business-level
problem and its context, independently of any
automated solution, and works forward to implementing
human processes, software and
hardware which together solve the problem by
means of “Systems of Systems” (SoS). In contrast
to SoS, conventional development only
deals with one simple, usually computerised,
system; SoS are much harder to comprehend
and manage without effective modelling.
