  • Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) 2014 Conference
    Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) 2014

    Organized by Universal Technology Corporation
    December 1–4, 2014, Grand Hyatt San Antonio and the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, TX

    The theme of this year's DMSMS conference is "DMSMS Management: Delivering Affordable Readiness." The Department's priorities and strategy, set in the 2014 QDR, calls for a smaller force with technological advantage while still protecting readiness. One crucial consideration to achieve this strategy is the relationship between readiness and modernization. As investments in modernization are deferred, the cost of readiness increases, sometimes resulting in a net loss. However, using proactive and highly integrated DMSMS practices, we can reverse this cycle. Better DMSMS management and investments can actually deliver increased readiness while freeing funds for modernization of critical systems, thus resulting in a net gain. This conference will present a spectrum of DMSMS practices to improve DoD affordability. This year, the DMC and DMSMS conferences will be held at the same time and at the same location allowing you to attend both events.

    This is a periodic meeting of SAE's Systems, Standards & Technology Council (SSTC) with reports from its associated committees (Data & Configuration Management (G33), Enterprise Information Management Interoperability (EIMI), System Engineering (G47), Life Cycle Logistics Supportability (LCLS)). The committees will hold working meetings following the SSTC report-outs.

  • 5th Annual SERC Sponsor Research Review
    Sponsored by the DoD Systems Engineering Research Center, A University Affiliated Research Center
    February 25, 2014, Georgetown University, Washington, DC

    This event focuses on a high-level review of SERC research strategies and priorities and includes input and feedback from the SERC sponsor community. The program consists of an afternoon session and an evening open house and poster session. The event brings together the SERC sponsor community with key SERC research objectives, outcomes, and transition opportunities, in addition to identifying new sponsor needs and how SERC systems research can solve them. This includes a SERC Open House Reception where all members of the Systems Engineering community are invited, including sponsors, collaborators, FFRDCs, industry, and SERC doctoral fellows.

  • National Engineers Week 2014
    Sponsored by the National Engineers Week Foundation
    February 16–24, 2014

    This year’s Engineers Week theme, Let's Make a Difference, celebrates engineers, engineering students, and technicians—and all of the amazing things they do everyday to make the world a better place.

  • Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS®) 2014
    Sponsored by a consortium of engineering associations including AIA, ASQ, IEEE, IEST, SAE, SRE, IIE, and ISSS
    January 27–30, 2014, The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, CO

    The Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium is an annual conference where training, tutorials, and the latest technical practices, procedures, and results related to R&M engineering are presented.

  • 2014 INCOSE Model-Based Systems Engineering Workshop, January 25–26, 2014
    2014 INCOSE International Workshop, January 26–29, 2014
    Sponsored by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)
    Marriott Torrance South Bay, Torrance, CA

    INCOSE's International Workshop is the event of the year for systems engineers to contribute to the state of the art. Unlike INCOSE's annual International Symposium and other conferences, there are no paper, panel or tutorial presentations. Instead, attendees spend 4 days working alongside fellow systems engineers who are there to make a difference. Systems Engineers at all levels and from all backgrounds are encouraged to engage in working sessions, and contribute their knowledge and experience to take the discipline forward. IW2012 facilitates working meetings for groups engaged in INCOSE's major projects and in international Standards development, workshops to explore the Systems Engineering challenges in new sectors, opportunities for Chapter leaders to meet and share best practice, support sessions to help you get the most out of INCOSE's shared working environment and a broad range of other technical meetings. The INCOSE MBSE Workshop is being held concureently with the International Workshop. This 2 day workshop provides an opportunity to learn about the latest MBSE activities, and to network with others involved in MBSE. The theme continues to emphasize the role of systems modeling in a multi-disciplinary engineering environment. The Workshop includes a combination of in-depth presentations, and facilitated break-out sessions. The presentations focus on systems modeling applications and the integration with hardware and software design modeling and engineering analysis models. The breakout sessions focus on high-interest and high-value topical areas including system of systems modeling, systems modeling and requirements flowdown, model management, as well as usability considerations associated with MBSE.
