Wednesday at Innovate 2013 has been all about the breakout sessions and after 3 days of intensive learning & sharing it was time to have fun at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. From today’s sessions some of the highlights for product & systems development were: in the Product Development track Big Lever Software talking about case studies in second generation product line engineering in aerospace and defense, Mentor Graphics providing their expert perspective on the integration of hardware & software development in the automotive industry. In the adjacent Systems Engineering sessions EADS and IBM shared technical lessons learned by EADS as they adopted Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager (RELM) – we saw a demonstration of how using RELM with an integrated requirements management, design, and test environment can speed up evaluation and implementation of change requests; and Jaguar Land Rover told us more about their systems engineering approach to product lifecycle management (PLM). And in the Real-Time and Embedded Software Development track we heard a lot agile development practices for products & embedded systems with a session featuring Panasonic Automotive on how to be compliant with the Automotive SPICE process model while also being agile, and a panel session where attendees had the chance to ask any questions about agile in product & systems development.
After another busy day, it was time to jump on the buses for the short trip to Animal Kingdom where a private party was enjoyed with food, drink, displays and rides.
For those of you who are up and about tomorrow morning there are still some great sessions to catch before you leave Innovate 2013, including:
Well, that’s it from me for this series of blog posts live from Innovate 2013. If you’ve been at the event I hope you’ve enjoyed it, learnt a lot and made new connections. And for all reading the series, I hope you found it useful. Please let me know what you thought of the event and the blog post series, and let me know what you’d like to see more of or change at the event next year; and what you’d like to read about in the developerWorks product & systems engineering community.
