How a German Premium OEM Is Using Product Line Engineering (PLE) to Gain Efficiencies
Andreas Korff, Presales Business Development Director, PTC
Powertrain has found that it is much more efficient to create and work in product line models in which decisions within its variability allow them to configure and generate each product model automatically. Version or configuration management is used for defining product variants, implementing a clone, and own paradigm. This might work for a few variants, but the effort to maintain the product models grows exponentially with a large number of functions and features. Watch this presentation recording to see how product line modeling fits well in the views of system models according to the SMArDT methodology (Specification Method for Architecture, Design, and Test), enabling engineers to find and repair inconsistencies before the development carries on. You will also see how product models can be generated from the product family based on consistent decision sets and are used for further analysis, reviews, model checks, and artifact generation.

Connected Vehicle Identity Management Using Blockchain
Jim Mason, Solution Architecture Director, Sky Web Team
In the mobility world, vehicle identity management on blockchain is the foundation for the connected vehicle ecosystem. It delivers trust, privacy, transparency, faster transactions, lower costs, and security to the marketplace and its participants. This session covers the connected vehicle ecosystem model and use cases, vehicle identity requirements, the new MOBI (Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative) vehicle identity standard, and vehicle wallet, identity, and privacy strategies. The presentation also provides a live demo of a prototype vehicle identity service implemented with a Hyperledger Fabric blockchain supporting the MOBI VID standard, key Hyperledger features, smart contract and API interfaces, related data models, sample transactions and a summary of next steps in connected vehicle identity on blockchains.

Digital Transformation in the DoD: U.S. Navy Case Study
Ian Boulton, Director Platforms and Technology FA&D, PTC | Thomas Murphy, US Navy | Paul Koester, MBPS PAPM, US Navy
The United States Navy is seeking to modernize its current acquisition and logistic support IT infrastructure, and requires a new approach to doing business. This initiative is called Model-Based Product Support (MBPS) and is a system with enterprise and field level capability. The end result is being able to effectively and efficiently acquire, field, and sustain weapon systems' digital twin and enable appropriate predictive analysis and modeling tools that can improve material availability and reliability, increase operational availability, and reduce operation and sustainment cost. Watch this presentation to hear how the U.S. Navy is approaching this challenge.

Are You Ready to Get Into The Head of an IoT Mastermind?
Thomas Steigerwald, Manager - Lead Digital Engineering IoT Team, Capgemini Invent
In 2019, Capgemini Invent conducted a state-of-the-art IoT study across the automotive, industrial manufacturing, and healthcare industries to assess the progress and achievements of industrial companies in their transformation towards becoming IoT masterminds. View this session to learn the resulting maturity assessment formulated based on the dimensions of IoT Transformation (inclusive of strategy, business models, organization) and IoT Technology (applications, platforms, connectivity, and product). This presentation will showcases best practices and major gaps for each dimension, which have been identified during the research process with 40 c-suite and SVP-level participants at 13 global leading companies.

Case Study: How Autoliv Optimizes OEE Across the Enterprise
Danny Jackson, Director of Manufacturing IT, Autoliv and Maciej Redel, Kalypso
Autoliv is in the midst of an Industry 4.0 transformation. Watch this session to hear their story, and to understand how IIoT and analytics drive innovation for this global automotive parts manufacturer including eliminating paper-based manual processes, bringing real-time visibility into operations through OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) improvements and implementing analytics-based workforce planning. You will learn how Autoliv leverages smart, connected operations and advanced analytics to bring machine, OT and IT data together to provide meaningful insights, support human operators in decisions, and suggest actions based on analytical models.

These are just a handful of the sessions from the Automotive & Mobility Track, be sure to check out the Archive to see them all.
