CIMdata and Eurostep report that Roger Hobley, technology development manager, Maritime Services, IS&S BAE Systems Surface Ships at BAE Systems, will make a keynote presentation at PLM Road Map & PDT North America 2019. This two-day event will take place May 29-30 at the Marriott Hotel, Tysons Corner, VA, which is near Washington D.C. The theme for this year's event is “PLM for Professionals-Product Lifecycle Innovation.” 

The United Kingdom's Royal Navy commissioned the new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth in late 2017. An aircraft carrier system is one of the most complex pieces of engineering imaginable and any number associated with the carrier is mind-blowing. In his presentation, “A Flagship Data Integration Project in Support of the Royal Navy's New Carriers,” Hobley will consider the project from a product information management viewpoint, with all its complexity, diversity of stakeholders and the value of data over time. The presentation will share the challenges and approaches for managing and maintaining data for this flagship project  to support an operation meeting standards for performance, availability and safety. 

Hobley has been with BAE Systems for over 12 years in a variety of roles, including the head of Information Systems for the Tornado Support Program and as Program Manager—Naval Information Systems where he was responsible for the development and delivery of the Enterprise Architecture and WEB-based IS solution in support of the availability-based contracting regime in the Naval Sector. Prior to joining BAE Systems Hobley spent 10 years at Rolls-Royce, where he was a manager in naval information systems for the Marine Business Group. 

PLM Road Map NA & PDT NA is an event for PLM industry leaders and PLM practitioners globally, offering independent education and a collaborative networking environment.

In addition to the May event, CIMdata and Eurostep will collaborate to bring PLM Road Map EMEA and PDT Europe to Paris, France, on November 13-14, 2019.
