Workshop: Model-Based Systems Engineering and The Digital Thread

Partner Workshop: Connecting the Digital Thread: Engineering Smart, Connected Products, Operations and ServicesMay 20 - May 23, 2019, 08:30 am - 04:30 pm MT, Clearfield, UT | USA

Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) is driving organizations to think differently about their digital assets and artifacts and what opportunities may await the Multi-Disciplinary Engineers of the future.

AGI joins PTC, ANSYS, and Phoenix Integration for a 4-day digital experience to bring your innovations to life.


What to expect:  A better understanding of the interconnectivity of digital artifacts and how they play strategically together in the entire digital thread experience from ideation to de-commissioning of a physical asset. This will be a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, come for a part of a day or for all four days.  All levels of experience are welcome.

In this seminar, you will discover how to remove the barriers between CAD and CAE to have simulation occur earlier in the product lifecycle.   This is a means to safely accelerate new systems currently under development and to de-risk existing systems that need updating.  Since the introduction of CAD 30+ years ago, design engineers have been waiting for a capability to do live simulations inside CAD because it means tighter feedback loops.  PTC, in collaboration with ANSYS, has created a capability to do exactly that.

It provides you real-time feedback on your design decisions as you make them – think of it as ‘spell check’ for CAD.  Now you can iterate more quickly, generate more options, and design with greater confidence. That's not just convenience and speed, that's design guidance as a normal part of your workflow, which ultimately accelerates new product development and lowers existing program risk.

Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical Hands-on Workshop

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll gain an understanding of the complete end-to-end procedure for conducting structural analyses and will be able to apply it to the solution of your own analysis problems. Just as importantly, you’ll learn several techniques to improve the efficiency of your solutions and the fidelity of your results. You’ll also have a firm foundation for studying many advanced analysis techniques in ANSYS Mechanical.

ANSYS Mechanical Advanced Connections Hands-on Workshop

This hands-on workshop will enable you to achieve and understand simulation analysis with contact, giving you knowledge for preprocessing full solution and post-processing.

Thursday, June 23 – 8:30 – 12:00

In this seminar, you will learn how to connect any engineering analysis or cost tool to the MBSE systems architecture model. Validate requirements, optimize the system design, reduce project risk, and reduce life cycle cost. Industry case studies and examples will be presented.

Thursday, June 23 – 1:00 – 4:30

In this seminar, you will learn the basics for creating a system-level mission model for aerospace and defense systems (e.g. aircraft, satellites, and missiles) in AGI’s Systems Tool Kit (STK).  You will use your mission model as the basis for an automated trade study to understand the relationships between system and sub-system (e.g. RF communications) performance and mission outcomes.  You will also learn how to integrate other engineering tools and cost models with the STK digital mission modeling environment.

Register for the event with our partner, Phoenix Integration.  Please advise of any dietary restrictions. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
