IBM Engineering Insider Series | Transforming the Engineering Process for Aerospace & Defense


Today’s products and systems in the Aerospace and Defense industry are becoming more complex with new technologies rapidly disrupting the traditional norms. Disruptive innovations are creating an environment for the “art of the possible”, which unfortunately also creates new threats to maintain compliant and safe systems. 

On the A&D front there is a call for a “digital engineering initiative”, where suppliers are being asked to adopt digital techniques that help enable a leap in speed and efficiency for bringing new systems from concept to an operational state. 

The IBM Engineering Lifecycle platform (ELM) offers a set of capabilities that enables  a digital transformation of the engineering process.

In this presentation we’ll present the core capabilities of the ELM platform and demonstrate how it supports digital engineering practices along the product engineering cycle. We’ll look at an “end-to-end” practice from early stakeholder needs to verification and validation, involving advanced approaches such as model-based systems engineering, agile engineering and AI to realize the digital engineering vision. 

We have helped our clients:
  • Increase productivity by 25-75%
  • Reduce development costs by 50-60%
  • Accelerate time to market by 20-40%

SAFe provided the agility, visibility, and transparency needed to ensure we could integrate with numerous other efforts, get predictable in our delivery, and ensure timelines are met.
