Abstract: This article reports on our ongoing experiences in developing visual analytics tools for realworld CESs. Our work focuses on the early design phase during which a large design space is explored, poor alternatives are pruned, and valuable alternatives are considered further. Visual analytics tools can provide interactive discovery, exploration, and understanding of realworld complex engineered systems (CES). The proposed tool, which focuses on the early design phase, can help users perform routine CES design analysis tasks and offer stakeholderspecific visual representations of complex design models.
