Analysis, Simulation & Systems Engineering Software Strategies


Initiative Overview

The changing role of Engineering Simulation is really about business benefits. However, achieving those benefits and associated growth of the Engineering Simulation market is tempered due to the lack of expertise available. A simulation revolution needs to occur which will bring a whole new set of opportunities and challenges.

The ASSESS Initiative is a broad reaching multi-industry initiative with a primary goal to facilitate a revolution of enablement that will vastly increase the availability and utility of Engineering Simulation, leading to significantly increased business benefits across the full spectrum of industries, applications and users. The vision of the ASSESS Initiative is to bring together key players for guiding and influencing the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering. To achieve this vision the ASSESS Initiative will collaborate with multiple activities and organizations across the complete spectrum of Engineering Simulation.

The primary annual event for the ASSESS Initiative is the annual ASSESS Congress. The 2022 ASSESS Congress was held May 1-3, 2022, at The Georgian Terrace Hotel in  Atlanta, Georgia. The theme of the 2022 ASSESS Congress was “Leading the Simulation Revolution.”  

The ASSESS Vision:

“To lead every aspect of engineering simulation toward a more valuable and accessible future in the medium to long-term, leveraging the expertise and knowledge of top-level figures in industry, government, and academia.”

As of June 21st 2022, ASSESS is part of NAFEMS. Find out more here.
