Possehl, Acting Deputy Director for Engineering and Director for Engineering Policy and Systems, at the US Department of Defense, will make a keynote presentation, Making the DoD Digital Engineering Strategy a Reality - An update in Year 4,  at PLM Road Map & PDT North America 2022. This two-day in-person event will take place May 24-25 at the Marriott Hotel, Tysons Corner, VA, near Washington DC. The theme for the event is "Digital Transformation and PLM – a call for PLM professionals to re-define and re-position the benefits and value of PLM."

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering's (OUSD R&E) Digital Engineering, Modeling and Simulation (DEM&S) organization is at the heart of the US Department of Defense's (DoD) digital transformation to effectively leverage data to design, develop, deliver, operate, and sustain complex systems. The mission of DEM&S is to advance the state of engineering practice and engineering enablers to support lifecycle activities and digital transformation across the DoD. This keynote presentation will reflect on the Digital Engineering Strategy released in 2018. Additionally, it will describe digital engineering, modeling and simulation, as well as data-centric initiatives that have occurred since the Digital Engineering Strategy's release, which include current departmental efforts to achieve the strategy's vision. Finally, it will identify opportunities for the future as we focus on governmental, academic, and industry efforts to more rapidly deliver solutions to the warfighter.

PLM Road Map & PDT 2022 will focus on the interests of the PLM Professional. With this in mind, our agenda offers a mix of reports and case studies from industry experts covering technologies, processes, and people. PLM Road Map & PDT 2022 will highlight the role of PLM in enabling holistic and sustainable Digital Transformation. Presentations will investigate where PLM has been successful and why. Additionally, we will consider the positioning of PLM within the enterprise.

In addition to the event in May, CIMdata and Eurostep will collaborate to bring PLM Road Map EMEA and PDT Europe to Gothenburg, Sweden, in October.
