  4. 09:25 – 09:40 | PLM Vignette: Cloud-Based Collaborative Platform for Future Vehicle Innovation 
    Olivier Sappin, VP Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes [Bio]
    Today’s consumers expect “silicon valley speed” of innovation; new consumer experience requires disruptive innovations while complying with regulation and standards. Dassault Systèmes is connecting intelligent automotive systems and electronics with a business platform for the Connected Car, Smart Cities, and Connected Devices. This presentation will explain how AKKA Technologies developed an autonomous vehicle with a cloud-based collaborative platform.
  5. 09:40 – 10:10 | Model-Based Systems Engineering supports Industrial Internet in Automotive
    Professor Dr.-Ing. Martin Eigner, Technical University of Kaiserslautern [Bio]
    Over the last decade or so, the exponential increase of embedded software, controllers, and other electronics found within automotive systems and the overall vehicle has elevated systems engineering to a critical engineering discipline. This presentation will explore how Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is evolving beyond the traditional boundaries of engineering throughout the automotive industry.
  6. 10:10 – 10:40 | Model-Based Systems Engineering and Product Lifecycle Management
    Dr.-Ing.Ulrike Warnecke, Engineering Group Manager Systems Development & CAx Support, General Motors (Adam Opel) [Bio]
    Systems engineering, simulation and analysis, and other disciplines responsible for ideation, product conceptualization and realization, production, and support are starting to realize that multi-disciplinary lifecycle optimization is a requirement. To accomplish this, many are turning to model-based engineering techniques and technologies to ensure that the impact of change is fully understood across all functional disciplines, not just product engineering, throughout the product’s lifecycle. This presentation will describe how General Motors is evolving its thinking and enabling true end-to-end modeling and simulation as a core element of their product innovation platform.

  7. 10:40 – 11:15 | Networking Break & PLM Collaboration Café

  8. 11:15 – 11:45 | Effective Use of JT in Tata Motors
    Yogesh Deo, DGM, Digital Product Development Systems & KBE, Tata Motors [Bio] and Chandrashekhar Joshi, AGM, Digital Product Development Systems & KBE, Tata Motors [Bio]
    This presentation will cover the implementation of JT Pipeline across all agencies in TATA MOTORS for the digital product development and its validation. It will share the in-house developed utilities and processes for its effective implementation providing the business benefits to the organization. The challenges faced during implementation and the way forward will also be considered.
  9. 11:45 – 12:00 | PLM Vignette: Virtual Prototyping Leverages Cloud Computing, to Enable Collaborative Concurrent Engineering for the Automotive Industry
    Fouad el Khaldi, Ph.D., General Manager of Industry Strategy & Innovation, ESI Group [Bio]
    Vehicle design involves complex trade-offs between conflicting requirements such as weight reduction, performance requirements, and manufacturing constraints. Virtual Prototyping based on the Single Core Model approach enables an efficient solution. Cloud computing associated with Single Core Modeling enables the consolidation and rationalization of the design iteration process and associated Models and data. This presentation will show how virtual prototyping can leverage the Cloud to enable collaborative concurrent engineering.
  10. 12:00 – 12:30 | Successfully Working in a Multi-OEM Environment
    Frank Khoshnoud, President, Cannexa [Bio]
    This presentation is focused on the challenges of collaboration and integration between the global automotive OEMs and their Tier 1 and lower tier suppliers. The presentation looks at the changes and the various factors which have resulted in significant impact to product cost, quality, time to market, and customer satisfaction. The presentation will also provide a practical approach for addressing the supply base collaboration and integration challenges.

  11. 12:30 – 13:45 | Networking Lunch & PLM Collaboration Café
  12. 13:45 – 14:15 | Industrie 4.0 – Discover IOT Opportunities in an Automotive Context
    Dr. Andreas Schreiber, Head of CoC Digital Factory, ATOS (before BMW) [Bio]
    Internet of Things (IOT) is offering a variety of opportunities to bring the world of requirements management, product design, simulation and test management, manufacturing planning and manufacturing as well as maintenance closer together. This presentation introduces automotive pains that can be addressed by these opportunities using an German OEM example. A toolset for discovering opportunities that promise a fast ROI will be introduced, thus giving OEM’s and suppliers an idea how to plan on the next steps to fully benefit from IOT.
  13. 14:15 – 14:30 | PLM Vignette: New Approaches to ALM-PLM Cross-Discipline Systems Development
    Michael Meyr, Marketing Manager, Aras [Bio]
    Experts from Airbus, IBM, and Aras have taken a new approach to ALM/PLM integration to create a reference architecture implementation using the OASIS Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration. This presentation will show what can be achieved using real world scenarios for faster development, improved cross-discipline coordination, and reduced errors in the flow of critical information in engineering complex systems-centric products.
  14. 14:30 – 15:00 | Industrie 4.0: Cyber-Physical Mobility Systems 
    Ulrich Sendler, Author, Sendler Circle [Bio]
    Today, German premium automotive manufacturers’ smart-connected strategies can be summarized, “connected and shared with useful Internet-based services for users.” This and customized smart mass production are the automotive industry's part of Industrie 4.0. For the automotive industry, the vehicle is going to be the main system (of systems), everything in it will be subsystems. Model-based system engineering seems to be the only way to handle this challenge. This and other important PLM-related topics will be covered during this presentation.

  15. 15:00 – 15:25 | Networking Break & PLM Collaboration Café
  16. 15:25 – 16:05 | ARAS – The Airbus “PDM Light” Backbone
    Anders Romare, Vice President, Engineering Applications, Airbus [Bio]
    This keynote presentation will provide an overview of the area of usage for this new “PDM light” backbone within Airbus as well as the rationale behind choosing ARAS as a provider of the solution. Furthermore, the experiences from the first wave of deployment will be shared along with the first experience of the key feature in the business model – the upgrade subscription.
  17. 16:05 – 16:50 | Automotive’s Product Innovation Platform of the Future  
    Peter Bilello, President, CIMdata [Bio]
    It is hard to imagine the automotive industry without the widespread use of key PLM enabling technologies (e.g., CAD, S&A, and PDM), but these technologies as currently implemented will not be enough to survive the many challenges faced by today’s automotive OEMs and suppliers. Future business success requires changes in all key aspects of the business—people, processes, and technologies. This means that what we have come to know as PLM today—its capabilities, architecture, and enabled processes--will not be good enough tomorrow. PLM’s future enabling of all forms of product innovation will be described along with key characteristics of automotive’s future product innovation platform.
  18. 16:50 – 17:00 | Conference Close
