NAFEMS announced an initiative to collaborate with industry thought leaders and end-user companies to develop and deliver a webinar series titled Simulation 20/20—The Next Five Years. This year-long program offers 14 webinars aimed at advancing the understanding, usability and application of current and emerging CAE technologies and methodologies. The series commenced Thursday, August 27 with a webinar titled Democratizing CAE that discussed how CAE analysis is being deployed to a broadening group of users throughout product development using template-based simulation applications. Webinar presentations and recording available here. Following will be three webinars based on case studies related to the democratization topic: Expert Knowledge Capture & Reuse, Usability and Accessibility.
In late 2015 NAFEMS will launch the second topic of the program with a webinar on Simulation Confidence, followed by case-study webinars on Verification & Validation, Uncertainty Quantification, Risk Management and Simulation Deployment & Governance. The program will conclude with webinars on Business Change and sub-topics Return on Investment (ROI), Licensing Models, Communication and Influence of Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
