About the Presentation:
The 21st Century approach for the military, prime, and business enterprise for integrated capability modernization, program management, portfolio management, and rapid response requires systems engineering-focused people, process, platforms, and data management. The industry standard and state-of-the-art is object-oriented modeling with domain specific profiles managed by a lifecycle platform further managed in a full end to end integrated and linked project management toolset.
In both industry and military domains, large firms have used modeling and collaboration lifecycle management to gain 50% in speed of design-to-production lifecycles (e. g., new car introduction) and similar cost savings of 50% (with added benefit of reduced operational, talent, and parts management costs). Change management alone, has reduced time from defect/error to decision to 5% the time.
Further, accuracy of data during a decision-making is driven up from about 30% to near 100%. For example, impact analysis for a change can be performed in real-time with a right-click with linked data between needs and justification artifacts, requirements, model elements, and governance and other documented assets wherever it is made accessible. Rather than working in office documents, decisions are made by inspecting and changing the “canonical model” which can ingest and report from a number of formats.
A key area of interest is the delivery of capability from a new program asset or existing operation being modeled in the form of “services” -- from the organization to users identifying the elements in the ecosystems that deliver a certain level of service. Modeling services is required to create, combine, or preserve services to users whether they be mission commanders or hospital executives.
However, many organizations have not been able to get there having tried integrating point tools or using modeling as one-time design tool. The use cases for an Ecosystem Management and Modeling Solution (EMMS) exist in every company, every agency, and every department whether an engineering competency or business operation. The systems engineering mindset is the start. From there, a relatively rapid implementation of people, process, platform and data management for modeling and lifecycle collaboration can be achieved, often within one year.
About the Speaker:
Mr. Parikh is a high-technology innovator, engineer, scientist, and entrepreneur. Link started as an aerospace engineer on classified and unclassified research projects for the DoD in 1981 including advanced weapon systems systems design. With projects in all major services, many of the weapons platforms were airborne, including early research in unmanned vehicle systems. He then went on to advanced projects and missions at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center working with top engineers and scientist on the Hubble Space Telescope repair missions, Shuttle integration, Space Station, and astronaut procedures.
He was one of the early partners at Global Science and Technology, a systems - and research firm supporting NASA including work on applications on the very first web browser. In 1995, he started the advanced internet software company, Parikh Advanced Systems, a custom software and systems engineering company, the injected rational's software development process to achieve a 100% project success rate over its 7 years at government, Fortune 500, and innovative venture customers. He joined firms in a number of industries across supply chain, CPG, and IBM prior to starting Rocket Technology, Inc., with the vision of being a leader in AI and Collaborative Lifecycle Management. He also invented a series of new products and across electronics, healthcare, and STEM education in engineering, program management, business analysis, and sales.
