This chapter presents Methodical Approach to Executable Integrated Modeling (MAXIM) and its implementation environment, OPCloud. The MAXIM framework enables concurrent modeling of the hardware and software system aspects, avoiding the need to make the painful and information-leaking transition from the abstract, qualitative conceptual system architecting stage to the concrete, detailed, quantitative design stage. The MAXIM environment aims to overcome the widening hardware-software modeling gap, stepping toward bringing systems engineering and software engineering closer together. OPCloud is revolutionary in that it is the first and only modeling environment that enables modeling systems not just conceptually; the same environment also provides the modeler with the ability to proceed with detailed, quantitative design that is integrated into the qualitative model. The chapter discusses the sharing of model data and describes collaboration facilities as built into OPCloud.
