Innoslate Overview

What is Innoslate?

Innoslate is a product lifecycle management and system engineering tool designed to help businesses streamline and manage their project requirements, systems configuration, product designs, and related processes. The platform enables system engineers to handle functional analysis, resources allocation, testing and evaluation, solution synthesis, and simulation.

Innoslate allows users to combine SysML, LML standards and a requirements view with Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators. Primary features include modelling and simulation, diagramming, collaboration, and version control. Engineers can capture project details from Microsoft Word, Excel and Adobe PDF documents, analyzing them for problems using the autonomous quality checker. The import analyzer feature uses smart algorithms to automatically create parent/child relationships across elements. Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology includes a built-in quality indicator, which provides users with suggestions to improve product specifications.

Innoslate comes with a process management system, which facilitates various system engineering techniques to create different behavioral models. The drag-and-drop interface allows users to create complex processes using IDEF modelling language, activity/action diagrams, and more. Innoslate's simulator engine runs all operations directly in the user's web browser for enhanced interactions and 3D visualization.

The best systems engineering tool, adaptable for all kinds of systems thinking, on the market.

Immensely capable and time-saving

Quite literally could not do my job without it, or at least would not be able to do my job anywhere near as well as with this.

Innoslate provides all the system engineering features required for our project.

The ease of use has meant a very shallow learning curve for new employees or team members using the software.

Innoslate provides an easy transition from a paper-based to a model-based approach to systems engineering.

Pros

I have many years experience applying systems engineering to aerospace and industrial facilities. Innoslate was intuitive for making the change from a paper-based to a model-based approach. I did not have to re-learn how to do and EFFBD, N2, block diagram or other common SE Diagrams.
Innoslate is a true data-centric tool and diagrams are smart in that they know and respond to changes happening anywhere in the database. It has a strong analytical tools and data approach based on the Life Cycle modeling Language (LML). I find that LML is a good starting point and that the schema is readily extensible to address my domain.
Currently, people on my staff who were not trained in SE tools were able to pick up how to apply it to requirements management and systems engineering. Despite the ease of use, the tool is powerful and we are applying it to projects with more than one hundred thousand items and associated data. I expect it can handle much larger projects without too much trouble, which I plan to do in the not-to-distant future.
The help desk is very responsive to issues, providing useful input to resolve issues. The technicians are experienced in the tool and understand at deeper than the surface level. The vendor has also made modifications to the tool, providing additional capabilities that I requested.

Cons

Although the tool provides some standard reports and good export capability, the ability to develop custom reports could be easier. To be fair, I have not asked them yet how to generate custom reports since I can piece together what I need from the exports. Having a simple custom report editor would make it easier for document generation.

Pros

The intuitive interface, the easy to follow training videos and webinars, and adaptable diagrams and schema make it easy to use with the development team and to introduce project managers, business managers and analysts, and non-engineers as well. This level of collaboration between the technical team and the management stakeholders, provides much more clarity into the project status, and allows the management team to optimize the budget to be able to re-direct resources to the more critical parts of the project when needed. The real time collaboration keeps everyone "eye-to-eye throughout the project. The document import and export allows the tool to be adaptable to a variety of existing development and acquisition environments, giving all team members the information that they need in the format that is comfortable for them.

Cons

We have very few complaints about Innoslate, compared to our previous tool suite. While all changes are recorded as they are made, and identified by the person making the change, it would be nice to have a notification Manager, to have more consistency with alerting certain individuals when a change is made in an Innoslate project. There could be times when you want someone within the project to correct, highlight, update, or modify an entity.

Pros

1. Creating spider diagrams from action diagrams is very easy.
2. Version management is very good in Innoslate
3. Web based and hence can access anywhere.
4. User level management is good.

Cons

1. No simultaneous multiuser support like google docs or diagram i.o , which is hard while collaborative work.
2. When a simulation is ran for an action diagram , the microsoft project files generated out of the simulations, doesn't include the actual dates that has been associated with an action of that particular diagram. This is not really helpful, as we are adding dates in the action diagrams for each action and its not reflected in any of the gantt chart generated. Hence makes innoslate not an ideal tool for schedule monitoring.
3. Copying just a diagram to another project is not possible, and the database doesnot have a handle to do a search on the diagram names to separate out the particular diagram.

Quite literally could not do my job without it, or at least would not be able to do my job anywhere near as well as with this.

Pros

The cloud accessibility and concurrent editing is alone worth looking into Innoslate for MBSE. The ability to implement OML, SysML, and other standard diagramming into a completely integrated schema does make it the premier MBSE tools available.

Cons

With the diversity of capability, and rate the capability is progressing, a lot of new features and graphical interfaces still lack refinement. Ease of customization and output is also difficult.

The ease of use has meant a very shallow learning curve for new employees or team members using the software.

Pros

Very easy to use interface with no training required for new users. The schema can easily be customized to suit unique needs of a project. Free read-only access to a project is a very useful feature. Innoslate support respond very quickly and resolve most issues quickly too. New versions are regularly released. Data export capabilities and integration with other software is excellent.

Cons

There are a few minor user interface issues, but they are all fixed in the version 4 that will be released soon.
