Next month, lot many simulation industry professionals are slated to get together the International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community (NAEFMS) American conference. It is going to allure plethora of professionals from engineering industry including simulation developers, academicians, CAE-vendor-neutral event engineers, and several others. In words of NAEFMS presenter and Vice-president of Medical Device Innovation Consortium, Dawn Bardot, “NAEFMS is a clearing house for talking about simulation for engineering activities. It allows the engineers the opportunity to talk to their peers and learn from them how other industries use simulation.”
A number of reasons can be cited in favor of this event that will compel simulation engineers from all over the world to attend it. However, due to space restrictions, we assorted the top three reasons that will definitely extract your attention and ask you to choose NAFEMS.
Getting Hang Of The Upcoming Trends In Simulation Industry: The simulation industry is a consistently evolving one. Simulation models are gaining wider dimensions. It means higher industry focus over better performance computing as well as multiphysics. Manufacturers and traders in this segment are now delivering their software in better formats that will allow better cloud and higher simulation capabilities. In words of Marc Halpern, the vice-president of Gartner’s research department, “engineering analysis and simulation tools are becoming increasingly critical to product development activities. NAEFMS is a great opportunity to learn about the trends, the challenges that those trends pose and the new opportunities you can be taking advantage of.”
To Understand The Expansion Of Simulation Multiphysics: Joe Walsh, the NAEFMS presenter and IntrinSIM founder says that, “The role of simulation is changing significantly toward becoming a key business asset. This will result in a change in the expectations for the types and amount of analysis to be performed and a change in the expectation for the types and amount of analysis to be performed and a change in the roles of those doing simulation, including today’s simulation experts and simulation neophytes.” Engineers these need to get proficient in multiple disciplines since the complexity level of simulation keeps on getting complicated. NAEFMS is one of the best places to gain knowledge and learn more about simulation multiphysics along with their usage. As Halpern likes to quote, “The complexity of the designs means complex physical behaviors that would be impossible to understand without CAE. However, the complexity introduces a higher risk of simulation results that can be misleading due to either faulty assumptions or modeling errors. So, we need to get smarter with CAE software, this raises the bar for the needed experience and expertise of engineers attempting to simulate complex systems.”
To Meet Simulation Industry’s Need Of Validation Governance: There is one single problem that is faced by every single industry employing simulation – letting the non-simulation users know about validity of their simulations. Bardot is currently working with NAEFMS to bring-in validation governance in this industry. In words of Bardot,” NAEFMS has started a series on credibility, calling it simulation governance.”
