Today, the ability to apply advanced simulation tools, techniques, expertise, and experience is as much an art as it is a science. Consequently, there remains a relatively small collective of CAE experts - many themselves early pioneers or direct disciples of them. These are the custodians of a high level of expertise and experience relied upon to perform key analysis and to extract useful data out of tools that are inherently difficult to use and highly manual.
What if there were a way to capture and reuse this expertise? What if a way existed to embed such tangible knowledge and intangible judgement into reusable templates, extending this simulation capability throughout the product development team? Most importantly, how can we exploit the next generation architectures for open-ended collaborative engineering analysis and simulation? manufacturing techniques and product lifecycle management processes develop and grow, the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Multibody Simulation (MBS) and all of the associated technologies is increasing exponentially. As a result, your community is expanding and evolving with the technology into a truly cross-industry, multi-skilled, global society, with its own unique perspectives, problems, and solutions.
If you're working in this space, you should be a part of CAASE18!
CAASE, the Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering, will cover the following topics, addressing every aspect of engineering analysis and simulation during a 3-day program:
Theme #2: Making the CAASE for Implementing Simulation Governance & Democratization
- CAE for CAD experts
- UI improvements
- Contextual Help/Support
- CAE for SMBs/Accessibility
- Enlisting Services/Consulting
- Out of the Box Capabilities
- Collaboration: Mechanical, Electrical, Software
- Collaboration Tools and Techniques
- Capturing Proprietary Processes within Apps
- Pre- and Post-Processing
- In-CAD Simulation vs. Dedicated CAE
- When CAD Simulation is Enough
- When CAE is Needed
