Program Excellence: Reinventing Systems to Accelerate Design/Development Cycles and Success

Listen live or on demand on your computer, iPad, iPhone, or Android device!

Of all the issues that stymies integration of large-scale design programs, the most significant is the integration between disparate tool sets, data streams, and languages used to move information. In this session, automotive and aerospace leaders will look at why this area is so ripe for improvement, and perhaps one of the primary paths toward accelerating design, integration, and production.

In this webcast you will:

  • Learn about the issues and trends surrounding integration between sub-systems and how we build them
  • Hear ideas about how to resolve the integration dilemma
  • Look at the results one approach may be able to deliver as the change is made

Who will benefit from this webinar?
Program Managers, Project Leaders, and Engineering Leads from both Industry and DoD.
