Valispace Live is a regular series of webinars that aims to educate about best practices in complex engineering projects whilst offering insights into modern techniques of hardware development.

Every month, the Valispace team presents on different topics from the world of engineering, utilizing learned experience and leveraging the knowledge gained from solving the many Valispace customers challenges in industries such as aerospace, logistics, automotive and beyond.

Valispace Live 2: Concept Design Studies & Trade-offs

In the second episode of the Valispace Live webinar series, you can learn how to apply the Data Driven Systems Engineering (DDSE) methodology to your system definition, perform design studies and manage trade-offs with Valispace Customer Success Manager, Cauê Napier.

In part 1, we talk through the theory behind concept design studies and in part 2, we explore how to apply this practically into a digital tool like Valispace.
