  • Event Recording

    To access Full Screen:


    ​Description:

    During this web event, DAU professors will introduce DAU's new "SySML Immersion Workshop" and Digital Acquisition Enterprise Ecosystem. This new Digital Acquisition Workshop is for cross-functional teams, not just engineers. These efforts are part of DAU's ongoing initiative to expand Digital Acquisition training for the workforce to include workshops and additional Digital Engineering credentials.

    The SysML Immersion Workshop is designed to train all functional areas (including program managers, logisticians, test & evaluation, contracting, finance, and engineering and technical managers) on the fundamentals of MBSE and how to use SysML models to access and visualize information key to acquisition success. Participants will have hands-on experience using Cameo models on virtual machines in the DAU Digital Acquisition Enterprise Ecosystem.

     

    Who Should Attend:  DoD Acquisition and Engineering professionals

     

    Speakers: 


    Dr. James Roche, Professor of Systems Engineering

    Dr. Roche has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Manhattan College, a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University, a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University and a Master of Arts degree in National Security and Strategic Studies from the Naval War College.

    Over the past 30 years, he worked in academia, industry and the federal government. His work on fundamental and applied research, and development and policy applications spans from Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps systems (e.g. systems engineering and software development for the warfighter) to collaboration with managers, interdisciplinary scientists and engineers to accomplish projects at the intersection of engineering, science & technology and management.

    Currently, Dr. Roche is a Professor of Systems Engineering Management in the Department of Engineering & Technology, the Capital Northeast Region (CNE) at the Defense Acquisition University.

     



    Troy Snow, Professor of Systems Engineering

    Mr. Troy Snow is a Professor of Systems Acquisition, Engineering, and Test & Evaluation.  He is the Site Manager for DAU's Eglin AFB, FL, satellite campus.  He has a B.S. in Computer & Systems Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and is a distinguished graduate of the Air Force Institute of Technology with a M.S. in Electrical Engineering (Guidance & Control).  He is a graduate of the Air Force Test Pilot School as a Flight Test Engineer, and an Object Management Group (OMG) Certified System Modeling Professional at the Model Builder Fundamental level.

    Mr. Snow retired from the Air Force after 24 years.  He has flown in over 30 different U.S. and foreign aircraft types and conducted source selection flight evaluations of the T-1A and C-27 aircraft. He served as the F-22 Lead Engineer for Safety of Flight Certification and was the Technical Director for the 413th Flight Test Squadron, overseeing developmental flight test for Air Force Special Operations Command.  His final assignment was as Deputy Director of Engineering for the Air Armament Center, Eglin AFB, FL.

     

     


    Brian D. Kozola, Professor of Systems Engineering

    Mr. Kozola is a Professor of Systems Engineering in the Engineering and Technology Department at DAU's Capital & Northeast Region. In his 4 years at DAU, he has been instrumental in developing Digital Engineering and ETM curriculum. Mr. Kozola is retired Air Force with 24 years of experience in DoD Acquisition as a Systems Engineer and Project Manager including assignments in:  space vehicle technology development at AFRL, National Missile Defense testing at the 1st Air & Space Test Squadron (1ASTS), teaching in the Engineering Mechanics Department at the Air Force Academy, Executive Officer for Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS), MUOS Lead for PM Tactical Radios, and Branch Chief at the Headquarters Air Force War Planning & Policy Division (HAF/A3OD).

     


    Bryan Wilson, Professor of Systems Engineering

    Mr. Wilson is a recent addition to the DAU family as a professor of Systems Engineering, he brings two years of model-based systems engineering expertise from the Air Force weapons directorate.  In his previous role at the Digital Acquisition and Sustainment office (DASO) he provided MBSE training and guidance to the workforce to prepare them for their journey through digital transformation.  During his time there, he gained experience in collaborative workspaces, reference architectures, tech stacks philosophies, and other MBSE principles to improve our Acquisition process. At DAU he plans to further his knowledge and create a better and more effective MBSE training program for the entire DOD workface based on his Air Force experience.
