  "abstract": "<p>The integration of on-board systems design within the aircraft design process is often<br>\nconsidered only in the late part of the initial design. This is acceptable for civil aircraft using<br>\nstandard technology systems. However, facing with MEA and AEA concepts and different<br>\npossible architectures, the systems design and the assessment of their effects on the overall<br>\naircraft should be moved up in the usual design process. This paper deals with evaluation of<br>\nthe effect of different on-board systems architecture, with a different electrification level, on<br>\nthe overall aircraft design. These effects have been evaluated using three different MDA<br>\nworkflows developed within the AGILE4.0 European research project. The workflows are<br>\ndefined with an increasing number of disciplines to show how the effect of a proper selection<br>\nof a systems architecture is differently caught by each one. In this way it is possible to define<br>\nwhich disciplines should be included for the systems architecture assessment. The results show<br>\na save of 1% of MTOM for the AEA applied to a small turboprop aircraft when only the OBS<br>\nmass is assessed. Increasing workflow complexity, adding performance and engine design the<br>\nsave increase to 1.2%. Finally, the save increases to 1.3% when the effect on engine SFC is<br>\nalso considered.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
