Chapter Meeting May  12

The Digital Thread, Advanced Manufacturing, and Industry 4.0 by Dr. Don Kinard

Location: Virtual (see chapter newsletter for connection information)

Abstract: Over the past decade or so the digital thread has provided great opportunities to improve engineering and manufacturing products and has allowed unprecedented levels of automation in the aerospace industry. More recently the maturation of the digital thread has provided opportunities to integrate our large IT systems to initiate the start of Industry 4.0, the next industrial revolution, the revolution of data.

Bio: Dr. Don Kinard is a Senior Fellow for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Production Operations and has been with LM for 35 years. Currently Don supports Digital Transformation at Aeronautics as well as programs such as F-35. Prior to his current assignment he was lead for the F-35 Fighter Production System (rate transition) development for F-35 and earlier the Director of F-35 Production Engineering responsible for Joint Strike Fighter Tooling, Planning, Manufacturing Engineering, and Aircraft Systems Testing. Before joining F-35 in 2004 Dr. Kinard held various positions in both Engineering and Manufacturing during his 18 years on the F-22.

Don is also the lead for the LM Corporate Fellow’s Manufacturing Team whose objective is to develop and share engineering, manufacturing, and sustainment technologies throughout all of the LM business units. His technical interests include materials and structures, digital thread integration, Industry 4.0, manufacturing technology, manufacturing system design, and production management. In 2018 Dr. Kinard was named as one of the Smart Industries 50 leaders in digital transformation honoring individuals across industry who are making a difference in their organizations’ pursuit and embrace of digital transformation.

Dr. Kinard earned a bachelor’s degree from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and a PhD (Physical Chemistry- Polymers/Composites focused) from Texas A&M University.
 

 


Peterbilt Tour - Postponed

Join us for a factory tour of Peterbilt

Location: 3200 Airport Rd, Denton, TX 75207
Closed toe shoes and pants are required. No shorts or loose clothing. You may bring your own safety glasses if you have them. We will provide safety glasses for those that need them. Prefer you take off watches and jewelry. If you have a metal belt buckle don’t lean against any cabs or trucks.
This event will be for chapter members, their families, and friends. However, children under 16 may not get approval. We are willing to put them on the list and try, but they have denied them in the past. We must provide a list of names by April 24th.


 

 




Chapter Meeting June 9

Early System V&V Using SysML Simulation by Saulius (Saul) Pavalkis, Phd

Location: Virtual (see chapter newsletter for connection information)

Abstract: Webinar demonstrates recent trends in system model execution with SysML to perform early validation and latter architecture and design verification. We will demonstrate system simulation, automated requirements verification, test cases specification and automated execution. We will use Cameo Simulation Toolkit which is integrating pluggable evaluation engines and standards to enable out of the box system model execution and analysis.

NASA perspective on recent trends in executable models: “This is an important development since it requires minimal configuration, can be used earlier in the lifecycle and can evolve as the design matures.”

Full hands-on one day tutorial on system simulation will be provided at MBSE Cyber Experience Symposium at Allen Texas. Reserve your spot at https://mbsecyberexperience2020.com/.

INCOSE Fellow honored with IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Pioneer Award

by Chrissy Clary | Apr 20, 2020

AzadMadni_AwardSAN DIEGO (April 20, 2020) – The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) congratulates INCOSE Fellow, Dr. Azad M. Madni, for his achievement of being selected for the 2019 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Aerospace and Electronic Systems Pioneer Award.

The Pioneer Award is the highest award given by the IEEE and has been given annually since 1949 to an individual or team for “contributions significant to bringing into being systems that are still in existence today.” These systems fall within the specific areas of interest to the society, that is, electronic or aerospace systems.

Since 2009, Dr. Madni has been a professor and Executive Director of the Systems Architecting and Engineering (SAE) Program at the University of Southern California. He is the founder and CEO of Intelligent Systems Technology, Inc., a high-tech R&D company specializing in model-based engineering and intelligent decision aiding technologies for aerospace.

Dr. Madni is recognized for significantly advancing the ‘professional status’ of INCOSE through sustained contributions. This award will be yet another addition to Dr. Madni’s prestigious collection of awards. He is also the recipient of several international honors from six other professional societies – IEEE, AIAA, ASEE, ASME, IISE, and SDPS.

Dr. Madni was scheduled to receive this award in person at the IEEE Radar Conference in Washington, D.C. in April, however, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person portion of the conference has been canceled, and organizers are currently evaluating options for a virtual conference that would include the presentation.
