Pedro Cobas, José Moral & Javier Vila, EcosimPro/PROOSIS

The fourth EcosimPro/ESPSS user’s workshop was held on 4th March 2015 in the Universidad Técnica de Lisboa, organised by the ESA (European Space Agency) and EA (Empresarios Agrupados). The session started with a presentation on the latest capabilities of EcosimPro 5.4.14, which was released in February. The progress made with the latest version of the ESPSS toolkit was later presented. Some of the issues encountered by ESPSS users that were solved by EA in recent months, as well as the feedback obtained from users for future upgrades, were also presented. To close this first part of the workshop, the new ongoing development projects in EcosimPro for future versions were presented, including the Montecarlo Simulation, the calculation parallelisation, 3D visualisation for spacecraft, new automatic testing tool, etc.

During the second part of the workshop, several companies that use EcosimPro/PROOSIS presented some of the problems they have faced with the tool. Different solutions for future versions were discussed.

The last part was a roundtable at which the users discussed new upgrades in future versions of ESPSS. The ESA and EA made a note of them to include them in future development processes.

The workshop was chaired by Johan Steelant and Francesco di Matteo, of the European Space Agency and responsible for ESPSS.
