Philip Jennings is a licensed engineer leading a team that is transforming the way Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) designs, plans, builds, and sustains the most technologically advanced ships in the world. In order to achieve this, NNS is pursuing a fully-integrated, virtual product model, a.k.a. “Digital Twin,” that impacts nearly every part of the shipbuilding enterprise.
Jennings is responsible for a multi-million dollar research portfolio with projects including simulation, data architecture, model-to-machine integration, technology development, and process & tool implementation. He is also a member of the ASME Model Based Enterprise (MBE) Standards Committee, the Department of Defense (DoD) Digital Engineering Working Group (DEWG), and the DoD Data and Modeling Working Group (DEDMWG).
Jennings grew up in Virginia Beach, earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in civil engineering from Virginia Tech, and is enrolled in William & Mary’s Flex MBA program. When not pursuing NNS’s digital transformation, Jennings enjoys leisure time with family and friends, serving on the leadership council at his local church, Virginia Tech sports, and spending time outdoors, especially playing tennis, snowboarding, or exploring with his boys.
