    Panel: Quantifying and Communicating the Business Value of AR/VR

    SCOPE: It takes more than an engineering report and slide presentation to move new technology beyond a pilot or proof of concept project. To discuss with stakeholders and to obtain their support for expansion and possible changes in processes requires metrics and several parallel communication strategies. During this discussion panelists will share how they have sought to measure the potential value of their projects, how and when they translate pilot results into impacts for the business and the approaches they've used or plan to use to engage with different business groups.

    Moderator: Christine Perey, PEREY Research & Consulting
    Jim Heley, AMRC with Boeing
      Patrick Ryan, Newport News Shipbuilding
      Ryan Wheeler, Rockwell Collins Inc.
      Elizabeth Baron, Ford Motor Company
      Christian Matzen, ESI Group

    Panel Discussion: Current and Future State of AR/VR Technologies

    SCOPE: The discussion will be centered on system components that are available today and ready to be implemented, as well as gaps that must be bridged before a production implementation can be achieved. The panel will also address barriers that currently exist, preventing or inhibiting some use cases of AR/VR and will consider how these might be overcome, leading to a discussion on the vision of where AR/VR technologies are headed in the future.
