Transforming Engineering Practices to support Digital Systems Engineering Initiatives

Day 1 - 21 January, 9:00AM to 4:30PM. Lunch and Amenities included.

8:30AM: Check In

9:00AM: Keynote: Transforming A&D Systems Engineering with IBM's Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) platform: Eran Gery, IBM Worldwide A&D Industry Lead

Digital systems engineering is part of the digital transformation initiative being adopted by the A&D industry. As opposed to a document centric approach, digital systems engineering relies on a digital representation of all systems engineering artifacts. This keynote will discuss the systems engineering process changes necessary to speed the delivery of smart air vehicles and systems, and how IBM is providing an effective digital engineering platform that realizes digital lifecycle information models.

Day 1 sessions will show how the IBM ELM platform realizes a complete digital continuity across systems engineering artifacts, including requirements, functional and architectural elements (MBSE), test plans and test cases, and implementation artifacts, with effective change and configuration management.

Day 1 Presentations – A&D Core Practices:

·The Aviary A&D Demonstrator – an implementation demo of the IBM Engineering Lifecycle (ELM) platform
(The Aviary is a digital implementation consistent with INCOSE 15288 Systems Engineering process guidance, with digital threads across engineering artifacts, and change management of requirements, design, and test)
· Integrating Scaled Agile into multi-disciplinary projects
· Safety compliance, DO-178 and 4754
· Integrating Rhapsody and DOORS Next with the LDRA tool suite
· MBSE best practices
· Model-Based Test of system specifications, with Rhapsody TestConductor
· Using DOORS9 with ELM
· Leveraging AI for Systems Engineering

Day 2 - 22 January, 9:00AM to 4:30PM. Lunch and Amenities included
