This paper deals with an improved process for early to detailed design phases of complex Aircraft systems. It is based on experience of Dassault Aviation (DASSAV) and Liebherr Aerospace Toulouse (LTS) in aircraft system design, and on works carried out within several R and D projects, in particular within current FP7 TOICA project (Thermal Overall Integrated Conception of Aircraft), where new process are developed to tackle assessments of architectures composed of many heterogeneous and interconnected sub-systems using simulation. This new process that will be described in this paper involves open standards like Modelica and FMI.
