He will join Comet Solution's Malcolm Panthaki, Pendaran's Dr. Hossein Nivi, Geometric America's Joseph Sahiouni, Siemens PLM Software's Steve Bashada, Georgia Tech's Dr. Chris Paredis, and HP's Christian Verstraete.

Automotive companies are challenged with developing safer, more comfortable, and environmentally friendly cars in less time and with fewer resources - while the complexity of today's vehicles steadily increases. In addition, the different engineering disciplines are largely disconnected: embedded software developers, PCB and ECU engineers, wiring/harness designers, mechanical designers, and quality assurance staff all work in their own silos and with dedicated tools and applications specific to their engineering discipline. Based on the trends and challenges facing automotive companies this presentation, Managing Complexity in Automotive Product Development, will consider a new approach to integrating engineering disciplines and the various models and artifacts they produce.
