Last year, I traveled around the world to speak to systems engineering audiences about the benefits and possibilities of digital engineering. Now, as the 2022 conference season in the systems engineering community shifts into high gear, I am touring the United States to contribute to and benefit from the wealth of knowledge that exists among industry professionals and organizations.
As I wrote then in my blog, rigor, clarity and precision continue to drive my engineering work, which is unlikely to change. And now, as the digital architecture and requirements engineering lead within SAIC’s Engineering Innovation Factory, I continue to work with my colleagues to collectively advance both SAIC’s digital engineering capabilities and industry practice of digital engineering. One of the things I love about my chosen passion is how it intersects with so many other disciplines.
In my roles as treasurer of INCOSE, the international professional society formed to develop and disseminate the transdisciplinary principles and practices that enable the realization of successful systems, and a leader in SAIC’s digital engineering practice, I will be speaking at a number of events throughout 2022. I look forward to engaging with members of the global digital engineering community, and I invite you to participate in or review these presentations below as they are published.
AIAA SciTech Forum and Exposition, Jan. 2-7, San Diego, Calif.
A Mars Octet: Lessons Learned from Federating Eight Student Models in a SysML Class
In this presentation, I shared the highlights of using our SAIC Digital Engineering Validation Tool in an academic setting to federate eight SysML models of separate and integrated Mars missions that 40 students constructed. The presentation showcased the utility of the tool’s validation rules in upskilling modelers and ensuring model quality.
MBSE Cyber Experience Symposium, Feb. 28 – March 3, Allen, Texas
Blackbriar: Developing Modeling Talent Through Hands-On Projects
This presentation had much in common with my Treadstone and Outcome presentations (Robert Ludlum fans should recognize the connection). Picking up from those presentations, I further elaborated on how hands-on training and automated validation rules assist in developing system modelers professionally. SAIC is now offering a hands-on learning laboratory; if you are interested in learning how this can benefit your organization, email us at SAIC Digital Engineering.
