Technical Webcast Series from the editors of SAE:

Efficient Model-Based Development
Available On-Demand Until April 24, 2015

Model-based development is an efficient iterative process that allows engineers to improve quality and deliver on the demanding needs of product variants in the current competitive environment. However, the MBD process leads to the generation of large volumes of data artifacts and work products. To maintain efficiency while continuously improving the quality of products in the MBD paradigm, it is necessary to be able to manage this data in an effective manner that is supportive of the development process. This free 60-minute webcast will examine the requirements for a model-based verification and validation environment and present data-management solutions that increase process efficiency. Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the experts during a question-and-answer segment.
