The pandemic dramatically redefined our ideas about community and what being part of a community meant. Some communities were strengthened, new ones were created and some atrophied or ceased to exist. Professional organizations, religious organizations, schools, and businesses were forced to rethink how their community would connect and stay a community often without being able to meet face-to-face. Being part of a community that prospered during this time had a significant impact on how, and how well, people coped with the overall pandemic. That said, some aspects were lost without even recognizing them.
In the article “Unlearning What Toyota Taught Us,”1 author John McElroy lauds Tesla’s success with electric vehicles and wonders where Toyota has been. He specifically quotes the book The Toyota Product Development System2 when describing the Toyota product development standard, which he contrasts with the process used by Tesla: much more rapid improvements, no spec freeze, changes after the launch, etc. McElroy also remarks how forgiving Tesla customers are with small quality problems.
3D solid modeling. Integrated product simulation. Digital twins. Multi-disciplinary Analysis and Optimization (MDAO). Computerized tools for product design and development are proliferating and advancing in capabilities at an ever-increasing pace. The capabilities of today’s software tools are far advanced from what they were just a couple of years ago becoming more and more realistic, accurate, and speedy with better UX, connectivity, and integration.
We are breaking this blog into parts, the first will focus on defining what we believe would further VM and where we believe most VM implementations stop. The following blog(s) will discuss recommended requirements for taking VM further. In all cases, we will hopefully trigger a dialogue with our fellow practitioners on what is realistic and feasible.

It was great to learn so much and connect with so many people in a close & personal environment!
Thanks to you and the rest of the board on delivering a successful event! I attended a couple of great sessions and learned new info to put to use in our product development system.
The LPPDE conference has provided me with fantastic learning and networking opportunities, and has taught time more about LEAN PD than any training I have ever attended. Thank you for this excellent experience!
Excellent event. Very good speakers, time for exchange, and networking is really worthwhile.
