    Speaker: Mr. Daniel Hettema

    Description:  In December 2023, the Department of Defense unveiled the DoD Instruction 5000.97 on 'Digital Engineering.'  This pivotal policy underscores the Department's dedication to advancing the field of Digital Engineering (DE). The Office of the Secretary of Defense utilizes a coordinated approach involving strategic planning, policy formulation, and workforce enhancement to pursue a cohesive objective. In this presentation, Mr. Daniel Hettema, Director of Digital Engineering, Modeling & Simulation (DEM&S) at OUSD (R&E), will delve into the details of the 5000.97 policy, and discuss related policies, the progress in developing a Modeling & Simulation Strategy, enhancements to the DE competencies, and initiatives to alleviate common challenges faced by practitioners, and additional updates.

    Join us for a comprehensive exploration of these transformative efforts in the field of Digital Engineering.
