Replay Webinar About our Speakers

  • Complex cyber-physical products require a “systems thinking” approach that integrates all the engineering and other lifecycle domains within the digital enterprise (mechanical, electrical/electronics, embedded software, controls, manufacturing, in-service operations, etc.) across the entire lifecycle.
  • Model-based approaches are being adopted across many business domains, but typically in silos of automation that will not enable the enterprise wide “digital thread/digital twin” vision.
  • Systems development technologies and standards enabling the “digitalization” of product development are rapidly evolving, but business success will require organizational process and cultural changes.

With the rapid advances in digital technology, the complexity of products is increasing exponentially due to “mass customized” product variants with high levels of software and electronics content. Game changing new product lifecycle management (PLM) enabling technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D printing), the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, and “design-to-purpose” materials will require new approaches to product development, manufacturing, and sustainment in operations. As such, there is a need to engage and collaborate across diverse engineering and other business domains to develop better “systems-oriented” solutions and conduct a much greater amount of “virtual” experimentation to gain insights into key product benefits and performance parameters early and throughout the product lifecycle.

What will I learn by attending this webinar?
  • You will gain an understanding about the landscape of model-based technologies and the approaches being used today in industry
  • You will learn how model-based processes can be integrated to achieve the digital thread vision in the context of IoT and Industry 4.0 initiatives for product development and sustainment
  • You will find out how to implement model-based best practices in targeted applications/use cases across the product lifecycle that can have significant business impact/ROI
  • You will learn from a model-based use case for including “Generative Design” and Additive Manufacturing

Join us for this webinar if you want to:
  • Find out about the differences in the focus of the various Model-Based approaches, where they intersect with each other and where that fits within the scope of PLM
  • Understand more about the digital thread vision and how concepts such as digital twin enable that strategy
  • Learn about the role of a “Model-Based Governance” strategy and what business benefits it can provide
  • Understand more about the people, process, and technology issues that impact successful adoption of model-based engineering processes across the key engineering domains

Who should attend?
  • Engineering executives
  • Product development planners and product line managers
  • MBSE/MBE team leaders and team members
  • Team leaders and users of Modeling and Simulation technologies
  • Manufacturing engineers
  • Field service personnel
  • IT leadership
  • Solution providers
  • Anyone else who wants to learn more about the role of systems modeling and simulation in PLM and Model-Based Engineering processes

During the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
