Next generation model-based systems engineering (MBSE) platform

AMBER (Advanced Model Based Engineering Resource) is the next generation model-based systems engineering (MBSE) platform from Argonne National Laboratory. Designed from the ground up as an extensible framework, AMBER allows engineers to create, customize and deploy workflows to fit their roles. Each unique, streamlined workflow is comprised only of the tools and functionalities that are relevant to solving a unique mobility challenge. Software, developed by Argonne (e.g., Autonomie, POLARIS, SVTrip, RoadRunner, GREET…) or third parties (e.g., Tableau, GTPower, AMESim, AimSun, VISSIM…) can be integrated into one framework leveraging commonalities among their UIs and business logic.
