An introduction to our panel: Moving Towards Digital Thread – From Migration to Integration: 

More organizations that are looking to transform their development and production cycles are exploring the concept of digital thread, but without an integrated, seamless value chain, you can’t move from concept to reality. How are organizations planning to address these challenges from migration through implementation? In this interactive discussion, a group of customers and industry experts will help to clarify what digital thread is (and isn’t), how to integrate your ecosystem, and discuss the broader impact to all parts of your organization beyond production. You’ll hear real-world examples of the challenges organizations have faced as they’ve implemented digital thread and MBSE, as well as how they’ve resolved them, and the new possibilities they have created. We’ll close out with a roadmap for the future of digital thread, and then answer your questions.  

Panelists include:

  • Tim Suhr, Electronic & Electrical Technical Designer, The Boeing Company
  • Vaughn McDaniel, Director of Engineering Services, Karcher North America
  • Matthias Steinmann, Senior Director, Central R&D Services, Alfred Kärcher SE & CO. KG
  • Dr. Karsten Theis, Head of Sales, PROSTEP AG
  • Eric Green, Vice President and Managing Director, Dassault Systèmes
