ASSESS Summit

ASSESS Summit

The primary annual event for the ASSESS Initiative is the annual ASSESS Summit. The Summit brings together key leadership participants including experts, industry analysts, software providers, researchers, simulation users, and others in the community of model-based analysis, simulation and systems engineering with the goal to review the current status, issues, goals and next steps of the ASSESS Initiative. The role of each ASSESS Summit is to guide and influence the ASSESS initiative’s efforts related to software development and deployment strategies.

A​SSESS 2016

The 1st annual ASSESS Congress was held in January 2016 at the Bolger Center in Potomac, MD, during the infamous “DC area Snowmageddon.” In spite of the severe winter storm, the ASSESS 2016 Congress participants constituted aWho’s-Who of the simulation software community to review the status, issues, goals and actionable items of the ASSESS Initiative.

The ASSESS 2016 participants explored 7 key themes for the ASSESS Initiative to establish: current state, mission/objectives, obstacles, and next steps.

  1. Democratization of Engineering Simulation (DoES)
  2. Engineering Simulation Confidence/Governance
  3. Business Challenges
  4. The Intersection of Systems Modeling and Classical Simulation
  5. Aligning Commercial, Government & Research Interests and Efforts
  6. Potential Game Changers
  7. Looking forward
