BigLever and Ansys to Showcase Industry Leading PLE and MBE Solution for Safety- and Mission-Critical Applications

Sponsored by Businesswire

BigLever Software, the long-standing leader in Product Line Engineering (PLE), along with Ansys, the global leader in engineering simulation, announced they will co-host a webinar on Wednesday, July 28 demonstrating how their integrated PLE/Model-based Engineering (MBE) solution enables engineers to efficiently manage a family of similar model-based systems and lower time, cost, effort and errors associated with design, implementation and certification.

This solution can dramatically improve the competitiveness of businesses that develop safety-and mission-critical applications by eliminating low-value, mundane duplicate work that deprives engineers of time and energy that can be better spent on high-value innovative work, that advances product and business objectives.

The session, “Extended Savings in Model-Based Engineering of Safety Critical Software through Feature-based Product Line Engineering” will address how organizations can use the Ansys SCADE/BigLever Gears bridge integration for safety- and mission-critical applications. The presentation will include a demo of how the bridge is used.

This webinar is intended for systems engineers, product line managers, engineering managers, directors and executives, business unit managers, and product engineers.
