What you can expect at VECS

Here’s a sneak peek from the prior year of VECS, where we presented the evolution of Model-Based Systems Engineering and how an end-to-end digital thread for the entire product development process is vital to successful digital transformation.

This year, we are partnering with Porsche Motorsport at booth C01:08. You will also have an opportunity to hear a keynote by Porsche Motorsport, “From Racetrack to Road – How learnings from Formula E benefit electrification at Porsche.”
