7:45-8:00 PM: Discussion and Wrap-Up
Abstract: Depending on your personality, the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books of our youth were somewhere along the spectrum of “intriguingly” and “cripplingly”, filled with possibilities but also potentially terminal decisions. Deploying new initiatives like MBSE at scale in large organizations can feel the same way; full of potential and exciting but also hard and at times treacherous. What’s more, simply flipping back to take a different path isn’t always an option! This talk will share a hindsight look at some challenges and decisions encountered so far on this MBSE adventure at Ford, including successes and lessons learned, to serve as guides to others embarking on the same.

He currently works is in the area of Automated Driving & Driver Assistance Systems, working previously on control systems for next-generation electrified vehicle propulsion systems and micro-hybrids, among other projects. As part of Ford’s efforts at making a digital transformation, George has also in-parallel spent the last 7 years working with others to define, extend, practice, coach and champion deployment of MBSE processes, methods, and tools at-large within Ford. He holds a BS in Computer Engineering from Northwestern University, a MS in Product Development from University of Detroit Mercy, and serves in various capacities within groups like INCOSE, both locally and at the international level.
