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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
