Troy Peterson of INCOSE and System Strategy, Inc. to Keynote ASSESS 2022

Clarkesville, GA ASSESS Initiative, a broad reaching multi-industry initiative to facilitate a revolution of enablement that will vastly increase the availability and effectiveness of Engineering Simulation is proud to announce that Troy Peterson of System Strategy, Inc. (SSI), will be a keynote speaker for the upcoming ASSESS 2022 Congress, to be held at The Georgian Terrace, in Atlanta, GA May 1st-3rd, 2022. Mr. Peterson was the driving force behind the MBSE transformation at INCOSE.  Troy Peterson’s keynote presentation’s title is “Digital Engineering and MBSE: Challenges, Opportunities, and Imperatives.”

“Systems Engineering has been undergoing a transformation to Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE),” said Troy Peterson, Vice President at SSI.  “This transformation is at the core of the broader Digital Transformation and offers organizations significant value. Fundamental to delivering this value is the coupling of MBSE, systems analysis and the field of simulation.

Troy Peterson is Vice President at System Strategy Inc. Troy was a Booz Allen Fellow and the firm’s Chief Systems Engineer responsible for instituting capabilities to manage complexity, engineer resiliency and speed innovation, a Lead Manufacturing Engineering at Ford Motor Company and an entrepreneur operating a design and management consulting business. Troy has led several international projects and large teams in the delivery of complex systems. His experience spans commercial government and academic environments across all product life cycle phases. Troy’s impact has led to his appointment to several boards to improve engineering education and method application. He frequently speaks at leading engineering conferences and was appointed by INCOSE as the lead for transforming Systems Engineering to model based discipline. He has also led INCOSE’s Transformational Working Groups,filled the role ofCo-Chair of the MBSE Patterns Working Group and is an INCOSE Michigan Chapter Past President. Troy received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University his M.S. in Technology Management from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an advanced graduate certificate in Systems Design and Management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He holds INCOSE Systems Engineering PMI Project Management and ASQ Six Sigma Black Belt certifications.

“We are very honored and excited to have Troy Peterson present at our Congress,” says Joe Walsh, CEO & Co-Founder of the ASSESS Initiative. “Troy was one of the early pioneers to recognize the need for and benefit of MBSE (Model Based Systems Engineering).”

The ASSESS 2022 Congress is the 5th annual congress for ASSESS organized to “enable” both strategies and relationships related to significantly increasing the use and benefit of Engineering Simulation. Key business drivers are forcing a “simulation revolution” to overcome the issue of required expertise which is limiting the expansion of Engineering Simulation usage. The theme of the ASSESS 2019 Congress is “Advancing the Engineering Simulation Revolution.”

Registration for the ASSESS 2022 Congress is by invitation only and is limited to 110 attendees. Registration will close either when all available seats are taken but no later than April 22, 2022.

The ASSESS Initiative was formed to bring together key players, both users and developers of simulation software, to guide and influence the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering with a vision “To significantly expand the use and benefit of software tools for model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering in the engineering applications domain.”

The ASSESS Initiative Membership program provides the ability for the ASSESS Initiative to expand its efforts and community benefits beyond the annual congress. The ASSESS Membership Program is appropriate for all organizations engaged in Analysis, Simulation, and Systems Engineering activities related to Engineered products & processes. The ASSESS Membership Program is offered in individual or group memberships. Active ASSESS Initiative Members receive access to Members Only content on the ASSESS website and a discount on the ASSESS Congress Registration Fees.
