Product Line Engineering in the New Digital Age

May 11-12, 2021 Virtual Symposium

This two-day virtual symposium features presentations and networking opportunities with some of the world’s leading experts in the industry’s steadfast advancement into the new digital age — digital engineering, model-based systems engineering (MBSE), organizational change management for digital transformation, digital supply chain, Feature-based PLE, and more. These esteemed experts come together to explore fundamental relationships among these disciplines that are the key elements to your success.

At the heart of this new paradigm are the precise digital representations of engineering and operations information, integrated end-to-end throughout the enterprise in ways that can be comprehended, communicated, analyzed, and processed by both humans and advanced computer systems. The business justification for transitioning to this new paradigm is for faster, more predictable, and more reliable solutions to the largest societal and enterprise challenges, needs, and audacious aspirations, which have heretofore been beyond our technological and human limits.

A unifying theme for the symposium is the essential role that modern Feature-based PLE now plays in the successful transition to sophisticated digital enterprises.

You will come away from this symposium with new insights into the latest Feature-based PLE innovations that are providing unprecedented business and engineering benefits.

Who should attend

The symposium is intended to facilitate important conversations between business and technical leaders who must now collaborate to successfully lead their organizations into the new digital age. Be sure to invite your business or engineering counterparts to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how to remove complexity and organizational barriers to accelerate your digital transformation.
  • Gain insights into engineering capabilities in the new digital age that will help your organization better achieve strategic business objectives.
  • See how other organizations are able to shift more of their focus, resources, and expertise to creating strategic value and innovation.
