6 Ways to Reduce Aerospace and Defense Program Risk


This presentation describes how a development environment employing a complete digital twin of the platform electrical system reduces program risk. It discusses the importance of employing a mature and fully functional, multi-domain digital thread to enrich the digital twin throughout the platform’s lifecycle – from definition, through design, into production, and throughout its operating life for sustainment. It covers the roles that automation and reuse play in reducing electrical system implementation risk. Finally, it explains how validation techniques with direct, continuous access to the electrical system digital twin can be applied to reduce integration and compliance risk.

Topics include:

  • How an electrical system digital thread reduces ECOs
  • Utilizing design data to improve quality and enable sustainment
  • Continuous design development analysis to reduce integration risk
