Introduction to the Integrate23 Digital Engineering Hub

Introduction to the Integrate23 Digital Engineering Hub

June 6, 2023 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Speaker: Steve Cash – Zuken Vitech

In today’s engineering environment, engineers need to deliver product solutions faster and cheaper with a greater feature content and higher quality.  To achieve this, we need to be able to exchange information throughout the business at an ever-increasing rate, with a goal of getting the right information to the right audience in the right format at the right time.

While many individual tools have created a broader capability within an individual engineering discipline, a greater ecosystem is needed to pull together the information from many different sources and deliver it to many different destinations. The ecosystem should enable the connection of the different tools in such a way that allows organizations to select the right set of tools to get the job done.

Integrate 23 debuts the inaugural Digital Engineering Hub. It’s an integrated digital engineering environment that enables the connection of information across various engineering tools. The engineering tool content includes requirements management, digital information exchange management, product line engineering, model-based systems engineering, engineering analytics, and wire harness design.

The Digital Engineering Hub is not intended to be an end point, but a beginning point. We would like to start the conversation about what we currently have, the current capabilities and the implementation. It is this conversation that will help to evolve the concept with more thoughts about the toolset, the need capabilities, and potential implementations. We need to move from talking digital threads to executing digital threads. Join us for the experience. Be a part of the evolution of digital engineering.
