Ms. Philomena "Phil" Zimmerman from DASDSE to Keynote at PLM Road Map & PDT NA 2019
The presentation will discuss the US Department of Defense's Digital Engineering Initiative.
Digital engineering is the US Department of Defense's initiative to transform the way it designs, develops, delivers, operates, and sustains complex systems. 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 a highly relevant 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 to be held in May, CIMdata and Eurostep will collaborate to bring PLM Road Map EMEA and PDT Europe to Paris, France on 13-14 November 2019.
