Achieving Pervasive Engineering Simulation: 2020-2030

Exploring the Impact of Systems Thinking & Model-Based Engineering

In this ground-breaking webinar series from NAFEMS and Revolution in Simulation, we’ll look beyond the present to the next ten years of advancements in simulation that are needed to support Systems Thinking for a Model-Based Enterprise. The series will explore how the latest technology trends and simulation methods will develop and impact our industry and society during the next decade.

In this series, we will be delivering six webinars. Information for each webinar, including descriptions and dates, are provided in the sections below.


Pervasive Systems Thinking & Simulation: Who, What, When, Where, Why & How?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

Access Recording & Slides

This webinar will help to establish a fundamental understanding of Systems Thinking as a critical complement to the reductionist design approach. As part of the discussion, we will explore the need for pervasive simulation across the entire product lifecycle as a critical tool for the design, manufacture and maintenance of tomorrow’s interconnected multidisciplinary products.


Model-Based Engineering: How Critical is Simulation for a Model-Based Enterprise?

April/May 2020

Registration Not Yet Open

Systems thinking, model-based concepts and simulation methods and processes are closely connected. The support of pervasive engineering analysis & simulation technologies are vital in making these concepts feasible. This webinar will examine how these concepts interact and how the resulting benefits are critical to the enterprise.


AI, Data Driven Models & Machine Learning: How Will Advanced Technologies Drive Future Simulation Processes?

May/June 2020

Registration Not Yet Open

Artificial Intelligence (AI), aside from being a media-friendly hot-topic, has been part of engineering analysis and simulation for some time. Recent advances in data science techniques in support of data driven models, especially in the application of AI, machine learning (deep learning) and predictive analytics, have brought these concepts to the fore in every area of industry. This webinar will discuss where we are, including some successful case studies, and how these technologies are being used to advance significantly the engineering analysis and simulation capabilities and approaches over the next 10 years.


Generative Design Powered by Embedded Intelligence: The Next Design Frontier?

June/July 2020

Registration Not Yet Open

The more that systems thinking becomes an integral part of how design processes are performed, the more our engineers will examine critically the interaction of the various subsystems and components inherent to an overall system, rather than in an isolated manner. This webinar will look at how model-based design and model-based development can work alongside generative design, powered by pervasive simulation for the entire product team. Is this the next major step that is needed in our industry to design, validate and support our products with advanced integrated systems that have been increasing exponentially in complexity?


The Digital Thread & SPDM: Will This Bring Simulation Out of the Shadows?

July/August 2020

Registration Not Yet Open

Engineering simulation is often lost within its own self-inflicted silos. Significant advances in SPDM have sought to rectify this over the past few years; however, broad enterprise deployment of SPDM continues to be a rare occurrence. For simulation to break free from these silos and have a broader financial impact on an enterprise, SPDM needs to be implemented and deployed seamlessly within the broader enterprise, especially as required to support implementations of Digital Threads and Digital Twins. This webinar will explore how these platform concepts can advance the use and impact of analysis and simulation in the coming decade.


Industry 4.0, 5.0 and Beyond: Where Does Engineering Simulation Fit?

August/September 2020

Registration Not Yet Open

This webinar will bring together all of the emerging simulation technologies in systems thinking and MBE to look at how they will contribute to advancing engineering simulation techniques in support of Industry 4.0 and 5.0. Advanced simulation technologies and data analytics will be exploited in conjunction with cognitive computing and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) comprised of interacting digital, analog, physical, and human components such as autonomous vehicles and collaborative robots. We’ll also explore topics on how all of the engineering information associated with the design, development, testing, manufacture and operational support of advanced products that will have highly-integrated, embedded smart subsystems and components, will be interconnected as required for realistic operations via Digital Threads in Industry 4,0 and 5.0 environments.
