CIMdata and Eurostep announce that Philomena “Phil” Zimmerman, deputy director of Engineering Tools and Environments, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering, will make a keynote presentation at PLM Road Map & PDT North America 2019. This two-day event will take place May 29-30 at the Marriott Hotel, Tysons Corner, VA, which is near Washington D.C. The theme for this year's event is “PLM for Professionals-Product Lifecycle Innovation.”
Zimmerman leads the effort to advance the use of model-based techniques to advance systems engineering (SE) concepts in acquisition. As a member of the SE staff, she is responsible for establishing the effective use of modeling and simulation as a systems engineering tool to support acquisition programs, as well as the related efforts in modular open systems architectures, intellectual property, and data rights.
Digital engineering is the U.S. Department of Defense's initiative to transform the way it designs, develops, delivers, operates and sustains complex systems, according to CIMdata and Eurostep. It is defined as “an integrated digital approach that uses authoritative sources of systems' data and models as a continuum across disciplines to support lifecycle activities from concept through disposal.” This keynote presentation will describe these digital engineering initiatives and will consider the challenges and steps being taken to realize the vision.
PLM Road Map NA & PDT NA is an event for PLM industry leaders and PLM practitioners globally providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root.
In addition to the event in May, CIMdata and Eurostep will collaborate to bring PLM Road Map EMEA and PDT Europe to Paris, France on November 13-14, 2019.
