Today's products and systems are becoming more complex, and new technologies rapidly disrupt the art of possible while also creating new threats to maintain competitive products. On the defense front the DoD has called the "digital engineering initiative", looking at defense suppliers to adopt digital techniques that enable a leap in speed and efficiency of bringing new systems from concept to operational state. Similar concepts are being sought in other industries like automotive and medical devices. The IBM engineering lifecycle platform (ELM) offers a set of capabilities that enable such a transformation of the engineering process along the line of the digital engineering initiative. In this talk we will present the core capabilities of the ELM platform and demonstrate how it supports digital engineering practices along the product engineering cycle. We will look at an "end to end" practice from early stakeholder needs to verification and validation, involving advanced approaches such as model based engineering, agile systems engineering and AI to realize the digital engineering vision.
