On-demand webinar: systems engineering in energy and utilities

By Justin Tuttle

The energy and utilities (E&U) industry faces enormous challenges, including growing competition, economic volatility and evolving emissions reductions targets established at climate events like the COP26 summit.

To navigate these uncertainties, E&U businesses have adopted a range of digital tools. While supporting individual teams, many of these tools are disconnected from other business units, creating data silos that reduce communication and collaboration. The result? Project delays, cost overruns and slower responses to challenging situations.

Learn how systems engineering improves process efficiency

Register for our on-demand webinar to learn how a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach connects isolated digital tools and information systems into a central digital backbone, creating a single unified digital twin of your entire enterprise.

For E&U businesses using MBSE, data changes for a specific area become immediately known to stakeholders, improving process efficiency, promoting collaboration and enabling data-driven decision-making.
