)-- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that Mr. Mark Williams, a Lead Project Engineer for The Boeing Company's Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) organization, will make a keynote presentation at CIMdata’s upcoming workshop at the UI LABS Innovation Center, home to DMDII, in Chicago, Illinois. The workshop will take place on June 6 and 7. In addition to Mr. Williams’ presentation, attendees will hear from: DMDII’s CTO, Brench Boden; renowned rapid product development expert, Dr. Andreas Vlahinos; Deere & Company’s Technology Architect, Roger Burkhart; and Procter & Gamble’s Director for Modeling and Simulation, Mark Mieli.
The design and manufacturing improvements implemented by MBSE exposes a wealth of opportunities for improved collaboration between the OEMs and their suppliers. However, the ability to freely exchange MBSE data is dependent on mature standards that are implemented and enforced in the tools. Adopting data standards reveals additional benefits of long term archiving, design data reuse, and stability in downstream procurement and manufacturing systems. In his presentation, Mr. Williams will share some recent examples that show how the industry has made rapid improvements through a unified effort.
This CIMdata workshop, is the must-attend event for industrial organizations and solution providers interested in learning more about Model-Based Definition & Collaboration and Simulation-Driven Systems Development. It will provide attendees with independent experiences from industrial companies and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and critical relationships germinate and take root.
CIMdata’s thought-leadership team of Don Tolle, Dr. Keith Meintjes, Dr. Ken Versprille, Dr. Suna Polat, and Frank Popielas, will be on hand in Chicago to facilitate the workshop and associated discussions.
