A. Larry Gurule
Assistant Professor of Practice, Purdue University
Rosemary L Astheimer is an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute, Purdue University, West Lafayette campus. Her in-depth experience with major CAD systems, including CATIA V4, V5, NX, SolidWorks, and Creo filters into her instruction style where she is training both undergraduate and industry professionals in CAD design, MBD, PDM and PLM. In 2016 she earned a Technologist Level Professional Certification in GDTP (Y14.5) – Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing from ASME. In 2019 she was the recipient of the Excellence in Instruction for Continuing Lecturers and Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching for the West Lafayette campus. In 2020 she was appointed to the board of directors for the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium.
Before joining Purdue in 2014, Astheimer spent over 15 years working in the CAD industry. She started her career in software support, transitioned to a pre-sales application engineer focusing on business development of new products in the automotive industry. Astheimer was most recently a Product Manager at PTC, one of the “big 3” CAD companies, working with aerospace and automotive customers to ensure their data exchange related tasks could be carried out in Creo.

Currently, Fredric is a Project Management Professional working for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He manages the development and revision of engineering standards such as Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing and documentation for the Model-Based Enterprise.
A. Larry Gurule
President, i-infusion, Inc./CMPIC, LLC
A. Larry Gurule is the President of CMPIC, LLC (a global Configuration Management training organization) and i-infusion, Inc. (an operational efficiency engineering consulting group). Mr. Gurule is also the Principle Author and Project Sponsor for the Global Configuration Management standard SAE/EIA-649C and has a continuing and growing presence in the Configuration Management (CM) community. As a consulting engineer, Mr. Gurule has decades of experience on hundreds of government and commercial projects including the DoD, tier 1 and sub tier aerospace/defense suppliers, electronic developers/manufactures, medical developers/manufactures, automotive developers/manufactures, and industrial equipment developers/manufactures, as well as numerous sustainment and service/process industry technology implementations. Mr. Gurule’s work spans industry segments that include Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Distribution, Medical Devices, Electronics, Heavy Equipment, Consumer Products and Energy Trading. Mr. Gurule has successfully architected, orchestrated, implemented and deployed process based enterprise software technology for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Material/Enterprise Resource Planning (MRP/ERP) initiatives essential to the local and global operations of his clients. In 2018 Mr. Gurule was awarded the James M. Crawford Technical Standards Board Outstanding Achievement Award which recognizes individuals for outstanding service in the technical committee activities of SAE International.
Senior Consultant, Mechanical Engineering, LMI
Ben Kassel is senior subject matter expert in the definition and exchange of technical data used for naval architecture, marine engineering, mechanical engineering, and manufacturing. Following a 37-year government career, Ben joined LMI in 2018 as a technical leader supporting efforts to develop digital thread technologies that enable model-based environments. He participates heavily in digital engineering research and development and is a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Engineering Laboratory. Ben has worked with 3D CAD software as a user, system manager, and applications developer in mechanical engineering and early-stage ship design since 1981, when he joined the Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (formerly the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center). He implemented CAD in several programs for the U.S. Navy and has participated in the National Shipbuilding Research Program at the managerial and technical levels. He also supported the digital transfer of drawings and product models, developed CAD specifications and benchmarks, and served as a technical adviser to government panels evaluating the use of CAD, product model technology, and digital data exchange in the marine industry. While with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Ben participated in the development of the distributed systems object model for the Leading Edge Architecture for Prototyping Systems (LEAPS), the long-term retention of product model data, and the development of international standards. He also provided product data integration and exchange guidance to the NAVSEA Technical Policy and Standards Group and acted as the NAVSEA technical authority for product data integration and exchange – ships.
But his absolutely favorite thing to do regarding all things related to the Digital Thread Enabled Model-Based Environment is pontificating on the need for domain specific data definition. Shape data is essential, Product Manufacturing Information is key to Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, but you simply cannot achieve Digital Engineering without form, fit, function, and operational characteristics of parts, assemblies, and systems!
Engineering Specialist, Boeing
Brandon Sapp has more than 22 years of experience in engineering. He started his career at Boeing in Propulsion Division as a Technical Designer working to improve the drawing and model creation process. After 5 years Brandon left Boeing to join INCAT (now Tata Technologies) as a PLM Consultant enabling implementation at large OEMS and various supplier sites. Brandon rejoined Boeing in 2007 to support the 787 implementations of the Dassault V5 suite and model-based definition through the supply chain. Brandon led the Design Methods team through implementation of Model-Based Definition throughout Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Currently, Brandon is leading the way for Boeing’s strategy on the use of data standards and interoperability across the enterprise. Brandon is a member of the US TAG to ISO TC 184/SC4 and the newly formed ASME MBE committee. He leads working groups at AIA’s Business Technology and Interoperability Committee and the A&D PLM Action Group on Model-Based Definition. And he is currently the Deputy Chair of the Technical Advisory Committee and Co-Chair of the CAx-IF User Group at PDES, Inc.
Brandon has a Bachelor’s of Science in Information Technology and a Masters in Information Systems.
