The Analysis Agenda - What Next for Engineering Simulation?

Rapid Manufacturing

Towards Distributed Digital Production

The next industrial revolution will not take place in the factory, but the homes and small workshops of the world. Short production runs of highly customized products using additive manufacturing and generative design techniques will be the new normal, and simulation needs to adapt to a more on-demand and agile reality.

NAFEMS is looking at how simulation can support this de-centralization and scaling down of production, as well as how we can effectively optimize complex analyses.
