2021 Model-Based Enterprise Summit

Event Description 

The goal of the MBE Summit is to identify challenges, implementation issues, and lessons learned in design, manufacturing, quality assurance, and sustainment of products and processes where digital models provide an authoritative source of information for activities across a product’s lifecycle. The theme of the MBE Summit 2021 is Supporting Resilient Supply Chains with MBE. The current global pandemic has highlighted the need to improve the flexibility of manufacturing supply chains. Doing so requires insight generated by manufacturing analytics using reliable and trustworthy data and information. The 12th MBE Summit will focus on the important role of MBE in generating this data, information, and insight.

We are planning a combination of asynchronous talks and live workshops and meetings over the week of April 12-16, 2021. More information about the agenda will be posted here as it becomes available. Thank you for your interest!

Workshops and Meetings

Workshop on Domain-specific Modeling Languages for Manufacturing and Similar Cyber-physical Systems

The past two decades have seen the emergence and maturing of model-based engineering languages to support complex engineered system development. SysML and other domain-specific modeling languages allow one to cope with the difficulty of designing and specifying complex systems.
Moreover, these modeling languages are proving useful when used for configuration and other system management needs, simulation, and formal verification.  Though originally intended for use in aerospace and automotive system design, these languages are proving useful in manufacturing and related CPS contexts. This workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussion of experience reports, advantages discovered, and challenges encountered in applying system modeling in manufacturing and related CPS contexts.

The workshop is planned to run 2 hours (morning hours in the US to accommodate participants from other regions).
Persons interested in participating should prepare a short paper and/or presentation.
A round-table discussion will follow presentations.

Please provide to the workshop organizers a draft of your paper/presentation by March 31.

Technical Language Processing Community of Interest (TLP COI) Kick Off 

The TLP COI is holding its kickoff event at the MBE Summit! The TLP COI will bring together interested participants to discuss ongoing and future directions for text analysis of technical data. The goal of this group is to bridge the gap between Natural Language Processing (NLP) research and industry problems, thus lowering the barrier to entry for domain adaptation of NLP. 

Session Information 

TLP COI Kick Off Sessions will take place April 12-16, 2021 from 4 - 6 PM ET each day. 

The first event will consist of a mixture of information sessions, presentations, and discussions. The TLP COI is seeking members from government, industry, and academia to create a better synergy between end users, the research community, and solution providers to reduce complexity, cost, and delay of adoption of TLP solutions. To view the agenda, please visit:
