NASA, Lockheed Martin, Boeing to Speak At Systems Workshop

Two-Day Symposium, Training and Networking Event Focuses on Decision-Making Processes for Complex SoS Engineering Challenges Affecting Government and Commercial Programs

PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Integration, the aerospace and defense industry leader in process integration and design optimization software, will be hosting a two-day workshop November 13-14, 2006 on "Decision Tools for Complex System of Systems Engineering" at the Hilton Hotel in Pasadena, California, adjacent to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Keynote speakers Michael J. Sander from NASA JPL Exploration Systems and Technology Office and Atherton Carty, Rapid Conceptual Design Project Lead from Lockheed Martin, will head a list of distinguished speakers from government and industry who are at the forefront of defining systems that will be used for the future of space exploration. Topics presented on the advantages and trends of modeling and simulation to estimate and engineer complex systems will have widespread applications throughout government and commercial engineering programs.

"This workshop will provide expert insights into the latest tools and methodologies for improving engineering decision-making processes," said Phoenix Integration president and CEO Scott Woyak who is among the lineup of prominent speakers. "In addition to hearing directly from industry leaders, attendees will gain valuable networking and hands-on training opportunities relevant to their critical roles in ensuring the success of high-visibility initiatives."

Among other featured speakers are Steve Wall from NASA JPL, Michael Grant who leads the Operations Research Group for Phantom Works at Boeing, Stu Johnson from Teamcenter Visualization at UGS, and program cost estimating subject matter experts from PRICE Systems and Galorath.

The NASA Exploration Initiative is a leading example of System of Systems (SoS) programs that address large-scale inter-disciplinary problems with multiple, heterogeneous, distributed systems embedded into networks at multiple levels and domains. NASA recently selected Lockheed Martin as the prime contractor of a SoS program to design, develop, and build Orion, America's spacecraft for a new generation of explorers. Other NASA SoS programs for Robotic Space Exploration and Commercial Space Transportation will be developed in parallel. All involve complex processes simplified by use of modeling and simulation technologies for design optimization, accurate cost estimating, and successful program lifecycle management.

Persons interested in attending the workshop, including press and media, can see a full agenda and register online at Registration is $249 per person with group discounts available.
