We’ve all heard the dire predictions of the deluge of data that more and more connected products will bring, but what is the current state of engineering data management? What does the future hold for using real-world feedback to help design products? What technologies are available and emerging to help?

DE’s Senior Editor Kenneth Wong will moderate a panel of experts as they discuss how companies share and make use of the engineering data they already generate, and how they plan to collect and filter more data so that it can be introduced into the design cycle.

Expert panelists will discuss:

  • Current product lifecycle management (PLM) challenges
  • How changes to the design cycle to create more complex systems in less time affects data management and collaboration
  • Data collection for design decision-making
