Keynote: Designing the Farm of the Future
John Deere is the world’s premier farm equipment manufacturer and is committed to those linked to the land. We believe that in serving them, we support improving the quality of life for people all around the world. We see several major global trends affecting the agriculture industry: population growth, increased demand for food, larger farms, skilled labor shortages, and environmental sustainability. Within John Deere, the modeling community is building the infrastructure to meet these challenges efficiently and effectively through the use of systems engineering, model-based development, and simulation. This development balances the need for cutting edge tools with stable enterprise-wide infrastructure. This presentation will highlight the technology that Deere is currently using and developing to meet our needs spanning from component design to designing the farm of the future.
