Identifying existing and emerging digital transformation standards and determining their role and challenges in adoption

9 AM PDT on November 10, 2021

Register now!


As the engineering community continues to increase in the use of digital engineering, join COE for a 1 day workshop exploring best practices and the developing processes and tools within the MBSE realm and how the 3DX platform support this transformation.


Keynote Session – Mark Williams, The Boeing Company:  Project Architect, MBSE Process and Tools 

With more than 36 years of experience working for Boeing in the Aerospace Industry Mark spent multiple years as a Lead Design Engineer on a variety of commercial and defense airplane programs focusing on product definition and system integration. He worked closely with Supplier Management on hardware procurement specifications and Supplier quality assessments.  He spent time supporting factory build installations, system analysis and the development of functional test procedures.  He has specialized in Logical to Physical Design Verification Tools and the supporting design processes.   Mark has authored multiple industry papers and has been granted five U.S. invention patents.

Today Mark is the moderator for the PDES Inc. and LOTAR International Working Groups developing MBSE Data standards. Mark is also the MBSE Domain Leader for the Global Product Data Exchange Summit, is a co-chair of INCOSE's Tools Interoperability Model Lifecycle Management working group, and leads the Aerospace & Defense MBSE working group hosted by CIMdata.  Mark is one of Boeing's voting representatives for the Modelica Association, and supports the System Modeling & Simulation working group sponsored by NAFEMS.

"The Importance of Capturing Model Metadata: Model Integration is more than Format"

There are many types of models all with their own purpose.  Consider the automotive, aerospace, and ship building industries that create thousands of Engineering models to define and manufacture their products. But how do the enterprise PLM systems integrate their content and build a digital thread?  To create a model the author makes many important decisions that are not always evident to the model consumer, or the PLM system.  These decisions are masked inside the model, often due to a poverty of model semantics, and how we rely on people to manage the process.  So how do we increase the model’s integration and re-usability?  This presentation explores model metadata, data that describes the model’s data, and how the engineering design context is the foundation for the digital thread.
