IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Symposium and Open Labs - Afternoon Session

When:  Sep 28, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 05:00 PM (PT)

The IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Symposium and Open Labs provides opportunities for you to:

Better understand the purpose and capabilities of IBM’s Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) solution,
Gain insights regarding the ELM development roadmap,
Identify new ways that you can use ELM to make you more effective on the job, and
Perform hands-on exploration to dive into aspects of ELM that are of particular interest to you.

This event is tailored and customized for Hill Air Force Base and it on base contractors such as Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, SAIC, BAE Systems, etc. The public is also invited to attend the the Symposium of presentations. The Virtual Workshops are reserved for Hill AFB personnel and its contractors.

Event Roadmap

Day 1 – September 28 – participate in the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Symposium. The Symposium provides eight illuminating technical sessions regarding ELM foundations, future ELM development plans, and how you can use ELM to accelerate your success in addressing practical systems engineering and software engineering challenges. Question and Answer session to follow each presentation.

Days 2 or 3 – September 29 or 30 – sign up for and participate in one of our 4-hour hands-on Open Labs sessions. You will select and perform one or two of our 25+ Quick Start guided exercises, each of which enables you to use one or more of our ELM tools to perform select use cases. You also will learn how you can later request and use your own personal Cloud-based ELM environment, so that you can further explore ELM by performing other Quick Start exercises that interest you. For registration of the workshops please email Gary Hayes at IBM <>. Gary will confirm which session you're registered for. There will be morning and afternoon session on September 29 or 30.


1:00PM DOORS and DOORS Next Generation Requirements Quality Assistant: Rick Learn of IBM - Solutions Engineer AI Applications Complex Engineering Technical Sales, U.S. Public and Federal Market

Low quality requirements are a major source for project and budget overruns and product quality issues. With the advancement of AI and natural language processing, requirements quality inspection can be accelerated and significantly contribute to engineering efficiency.Stakeholders and domain experts can participate in requirements reviews using any web browser and results are immediately available – no more passing around copied documents, waiting for and collating results.

2:00PM Efficient and Collaborative Test Management: Ed Gafron of IBM - Federal Sector Solutions Engineer

Test Management is an integral piece to the engineering life cycle. We will present and discuss the components of the Engineering Test Management solution that promote collaboration across engineering teams, provide timely testing information to make informed decisions, and organize your testing process.
