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.

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/.

Program Abstract:

Inaugurated in 2009, the Professional Master’s in Applied Systems Engineering (PMASE) was the first professional master’s degree at Georgia Tech. The degree program is designed for experienced professionals interested in building and expanding their systems engineering expertise. The intended applicants are individuals with five or more years of work experience in an engineering or hard-science occupation. The PMASE curriculum is focused on enhancing the skills and knowledge that engineers need in a competitive, global environment. Through the program, students develop a core understanding of complex systems and learn how to apply concepts and techniques to solve real-world challenges. PMASE is a two-year program that consists of six core courses on systems engineering fundamentals, modeling and simulation, SysML, and system design. An additional four courses provide a specialization in complex systems. The program’s hybrid format blends faceto-face instruction and online learning, enabling PMASE students to work full time while earning a two-year advanced degree. Prof. Dimitri Mavris was named the Executive Director of the PMASE program in August 2019.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Dimitri Mavris

Dimitri Mavris earned his B.S. (1984), M.S. (1985), and Ph.D. (1988) in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech. He is the Boeing Chaired Professor of Advanced Aerospace Systems Analysis in Georgia Tech’s School of Aerospace Engineering, Regents Professor, and an S.P. Langley NIA Distinguished Professor. Additionally, he is the Director of its Georgia Tech Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL) and Executive Director of the Professional Master’s in Applied Systems Engineering (PMASE) program. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society. He is a member of the Executive Committee of the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences and the AIAA Council of Directors, serving as the Director of the AIAA Aviation Technology, Integration, and Operations Group. He is a member of the International Council of Systems Engineering. He formerly served as a member of the US Air Force Scientific Advisory Board and co-chair of the Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection’s review board of independent experts. For the past 25 years, Prof. Mavris and ASDL have specialized in the integration of multi-disciplinary physics-based modeling and simulation tools. ASDL’s signature methods streamline the process of integrating parametric simulation toolsets and enable huge runtime improvements that facilitate large scale design space exploration and optimization under uncertainty. Recent research focuses on combining these methods with advances in computing to enable large-scale virtual experimentation for complex systems design. Many current ASDL projects focus on Model-Based Systems Engineering.
