NAFEMS webinar—Democratization: Usability, Oct. 1, 11:00 am EDT. Speakers: Chad Jackson, Lifecycle Insights; Michael “Zack” Eckblad, Intel. For non-experts to be able to run sophisticated simulations, it is critical that simulation apps be highly usable, speaking the language of the user and not the simulation expert. While there has been significant progress in making general-purpose simulation tools easier to use, they are, almost by definition, mostly used only by the experts. Meanwhile, “non-experts” continue to find that they are seldom able to use these tools safely, and must defer to the experts. In this webinar, a presentation by Chad Jackson and a case-study presentation by Michael “Zack” Eckblad of Intel explored this topic further, demonstrating practical examples of simulation apps at work, and the ROI experienced.
