Let’s Get Digital Webinar - Digital Engineering The Next Chapter - 20230126 - 90123 - Meeting Recording
From Heather Winstead
The Department of Defense (DoD) continues its commitment to Digital Engineering. Shortly after the release of the DoD Digital Engineering Strategy, each of the services developed implementation plans to realize the focus areas in the Strategy.
Digital engineering combines model-based techniques, digital practices, and computing infrastructure, enabling the delivery of high pay-off solutions to the warfighter at the speed of relevance. DoD and the defense industrial base are expanding digital engineering across the enterprise by incorporating it into a wide range of programs, systems, components, and subsystems. DE methods, processes and tools are improving communication, lowering risk, optimizing designs in the virtual world, and shortening acquisition timelines. The DoD and the defense industrial base continue to evolve collaborative, integrated digital environments that guide, orchestrate and deliver the means for stakeholders to access data, functions, and elements necessary to do their job digitally.
Mr. Daniel Hettema will join us to review the current state of the digital engineering practice and outline a vision for the future. The presentation will highlight some of the key initiatives in progress, such as the Digital Engineering Body of Knowledge (DEBoK), DoD Modeling & Simulation Strategy and the DE training credentials program. There will be a Q&A portion.
