ASSESS Initiative announces that Ralf Hartmann, vice president and technical advisor, “Digital Design, Manufacturing and Service” (DDMS), within the Digital Transformation Office (DTO) at Airbus Defense & Space will be a keynote speaker for the upcoming ASSESS 2019 Congress, to be held at Chateau Elan Winery & Resort in Braselton, GA, Oct 27-29, 2019. Hartmann’s keynote presentation’s title is “Multidisciplinary Integration Towards the Digital Twin.”

“The Digital Twin is the most relevant opportunity and challenge in product development today and in the upcoming decade.” says Hartmann. “Although in many areas artefacts of its implementation have been demonstrated, there is still a major journey ahead of us.”

The DDMS' responsibility is to ensure the full multidisciplinary digital integration of all domains along the full lifecycle. This includes the re-engineering of all processes and data models, the harmonization of all relevant authoring and backbone applications and the associated transformation and change management. The special challenge is the broad diversity of the product portfolio to be served reaching from “Military Aircrafts” across “Unmanned Aerial Systems,” “Communications, Intelligence & Security” and “Space Systems.”  

Hartmann joined the DTO office in July 2017 after having worked in Space Systems for 30 years in the area of robotics, automatic control, simulation, S/W development and primarily Systems Engineering. He is a member of the Airbus Systems Engineering Steering Group (SESG) and the INCOSE Corporate Advisory Board representative of Airbus Defense and Space.  He received a Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe and he is a certified project management professional (GPM/IPMA).

“We are very honored and excited to have Ralf Hartmann present at our Congress,” says Joe Walsh, CEO & co-founder of the ASSESS Initiative. “Airbus Defense & Space have been a world-renowned driving force for the advancement of Digital Transformation leveraging Engineering Simulation.” 

The ASSESS 2019 Congress is the 4th annual congress for ASSESS organized to “enable” both strategies and relationships related to significantly increasing the use and benefit of Engineering Simulation. Key business drivers are forcing a “simulation revolution” to overcome the issue of required expertise which is limiting the expansion of Engineering Simulation usage. The theme of the ASSESS 2019 Congress is “Advancing the Engineering Simulation Revolution.”

Registration for the ASSESS 2019 Congress is by invitation only and is limited to 105 attendees. Registration will close either when all available seats are taken but no later than October 24, 2019.
