The Art of Storytelling: Identifying Lean PD Opportunities and Developing a Clear and Compelling Business Case
09:05 - 09:45
Aaron W. Shin
Abstract: This keynote presentation will cover examples of Lean PD projects being pursued within Raytheon to improve speed, cost, and quality of designs to deliver best value to the customers. This session will also include a general overview of identifying projects to address the burning platform,; creating the compelling need for change, obtaining grassroots and management support, and executing these projects.
Aircraft and Defense Markets: Outperforming the Economy
09:45 - 10:45
Richard L. Aboulafia
Vice President, Analysis
Abstract: A discussion of all major market trends in the aviation business today. The presentation will cover growth rates, market risks, and competitive dynamics for all turbine-powered aircraft markets, products, and manufacturers. Specifically, it will look at military fixed and rotary wing aircraft, large commercial jetliners, regional aircraft, and business aviation. A Q&A session will also answer audience questions on any secondary and related markets, such as jet engines or defense spending.
Reducing Risk: Model-driven Development and Your Development Program
11:05 - 11:45
Vice President, Sales Americas
Abstract: Successful system design and deployment involves managing requirements, architecting and optimizing designs, and implementing subsystems across organizational, geographic, and supply-chain boundaries. A model-driven development approach helps manage this dauntingly complex process and ensures compliance with program requirements and functional specifications. Virtual prototypes (models) from diverse domains can be integrated at each development stage, so integration issues can be addressed early. It is an approach that reduces overall program time, cost and risk. This keynote presentation describes how model-driven development can become the foundation of an integrated design flow. It will explain virtual engineering environments for system design specification, exploration, optimization, and integration. The talk will also introduce Mentor Graphics' MDD tool flows for electrical distribution systems, electronic control modules (HW & SW), and custom digital HW components. Lastly, the presentation will provide a context for the technical tracks to follow, providing guidance to attendees for further, in-depth learning.
It's EWIS vs. ECAD in Aerospace Design
11:45 - 12:25
Manager, EWIS Design & Assurance
Abstract: In the aerospace business, time is always at a premium, and EWIS requirements may seem like a burden on project schedules and engineering time-not to mention costs. But this challenge can be an opportunity to leverage ECAD technologies that make EWIS an integral part of the design flow. Today's automated design tools can enforce esoteric EWIS rules with the same ease and efficiency with which they perform their basic wiring design duties. The presentation will offer an overview of the EWIS design process and then go on to discuss issues such as certification, multi-site globalization, and ongoing support in the EWIS context and will examine the EWIS life cycle. The presentation also will look at design-to-cost goals and explain how effective, integrated ECAD solutions can reduce design cycle time and with it, the pressures of the race to market.
An Iterative Process for Simulating Complex Military and Aerospace Systems
11:45 - 12:25
Electrical Design Engineer
Abstract: Most of us encounter simulation challenges that far outpace the simple demos of RLC circuit simulation. However, these challenges can be tackled by first simulating the most basic principle, and then swapping out behavioral blocks for components you would encounter in hardware. This session will demonstrate a test case that utilizes this process and implements simulation blocks of multiple complexities including VHDL Code, data vs. time input from file, C-code implementation, file read simulation settings, and much more.
Automating Stress Analysis at Raytheon
16:50 - 17:30
Department Manager of Analog Design
Abstract: Stress Analysis is a very tedious, manual process that occurs late in the design cycle. Because a program is often already late, it does not get the attention it deserves which often leads to errors. By using SystemVision to automate this process, Raytheon is working to improve efficiency of Stress Analysis and to standardize reports & models. This presentation focuses on why Stress Analysis needed to be automated and the benefits of automation.
