Session Title: Dynamic Behavior Analysis of Complex Engineering Systems
Date/Time: Tuesday, September 18; 10:00 am CDT/11:00 am EDT
Speaker: Edward Ladzinski; Dassault Systemes, CATIA
Across industries, products are becoming increasingly complex and are involving many more engineering disciplines. Various solutions for systems engineering of these complex systems have emerged. Companies need to develop the logical description of complex systems and simulate the behavior of complex interactions between systems of many engineering fields, such as mechanical, electrical, thermodynamic, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal and control systems, among others. The Dynamic Behavior Modeling approach allows engineers and system architects to build models of complex systems in order to study and simulate their behavior to better predict the actual operating characteristics and explore overall system capacity in a multi-discipline environment.
This presentation will focus on one solution that:
- Offers a unique and powerful PLM Collaborative environment to ensure a consistent, traceable and reliable system definition
- A unified Requirement-Functional-Logical-Physical (RFLP) approach to master complex systems definition.
- Formal system modeling using modular components to develop systems across multi-disciplines through a powerful open MODELICA language.
- A virtual execution engine to perform a global validation, including 3D and dynamic behavior.
- The ability to test more alternative designs strengthening quality in the final product.
Edward Ladzinski is the Dassault Systèmes leader for Systems Engineering in the Americas. Prior to joining Dassault Systems, Mr. Ladzinski was the IBM Leader for the CATIA Brand in North America.
Mr. Ladzinski joined IBM in 1978 as a research and development engineer in the Kingston, NY laboratory. After serving in various positions in research & development and product engineering, he joined the IBM marketing and sales division in 1983 concentrating on the IBM CAD/CAM/CAE engineering segments working closely with Dassault Systèmes.
He was a pioneer during the CAD/CAM/CAE revolution serving as an application engineer, sales specialist, marketing manager and as the worldwide IBM PLM Analysis & Simulation Marketing Manager while on assignment in Paris, France. After returning to the United States, he led the IBM analysis & simulation marketing initiative known as EIF (Engineering Innovation Framework) and then served as the IBM sales leader for CATIA sales in the Americas until his retirement from IBM in 2010 after 32 years of service.
Mr. Ladzinski also serves on the NAFEMS North American Steering Committee and is co-founder of the Stochastics, Simulation Data Management and the newly formed Systems Engineering and Simulation International Working Groups. He is also the chairman of the Analysis & Simulation (EAS) track at COE (CATIA Operators Exchange). He is an engineering graduate of RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) and performed his graduate work in Engineering and Business at RIT and UNCC (University of North Carolina Charlotte), respectively.
