Happy New Year, INCOSE Colorado Front Range! Our focus this year will be on tools that support and enhance the practice of systems engineering. You’ll hear some case studies, see some tool demos, and we even plan to have some workshops later in the year. To kick off this series, we are honored to have Tony Davenport from Phoenix Integration as our guest presenter for our January member meeting on
Wednesday, 20 Jan.
Chapter meeting starts at 6:15 PM and the presentation starts at 6:30 PM Mountain Time.

ModelCenter: Enabling Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) with Multi-Disciplinary Analysis & Optimization (MDAO).
Presented By: Tony Davenport, North American Regional Manager, Phoenix Integration
This presentation will introduce and expand on concepts associated with integrating System Engineering models with Analytical models (physics, cost, mission, etc,.) in order to create a trade space for making intelligent decisions about your product.
The last 25 years, major aerospace companies utilized ModelCenter to make decisions and exceed their customer’s requirements. By automating and integrating discipline based mission, system, analytical, and cost solutions together to create a workflow, ModelCenter allows engineers to create tremendous improvements in price per performance while reducing risk on a project. Once the workflow is created, anyone in the organization’s digital thread can use sensitivity, design of experiments, optimization and risk/reliability algorithms to digitally test and improve all aspects of the design. Workflows can be created across the organizations desktops, HPC, cloud, and in a hybrid environment. By attending this 1.5 presentation, you will learn MDAO concepts and how many aerospace companies are utilizing this capability today.
After performing analytical engineering for 10 years at various engineering firms including EDS, Westinghouse, and Northrop Grumman, Tony spent the next 15 years helping many aerospace and defense companies optimize their CAE processes as an engineering business consultant with MSC Software and ESI. Tony joined Phoenix Integration in 2016 to manage our sales activities, and help our customer’s gain significant value in their simulation assets. Tony holds a Master of Business Administration and a Bachelor’s of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park.
