The NAFEMS Manufacturing Process Simulation Working Group (MANWG) was launched in February 2016 with the following mission statement:
‘to promote the development and use of virtual manufacturing tools within the product design and manufacturing cycle to improve outcomes in industrial manufacturing processes’.
Monthly online meetings via WebEx
December 20th 2023 - Regular MANWG meeting plus key items an update from the activity in our FG's (metal forming, composites, metal additive manufacturing) + the results of poll on Generic Topics, decision on priorities
January 17th 2024 - Short MANWG meeting + 'Special Event': "Handbook/analytical <> numerical <> AI: what's a good mix for MPS for the future?"
The group includes representatives of The Aerospace Corporation, Airbus, ANSYS, Boeing, Brunel University, Convergent, Dutton Simulation, Enginsoft, ESI, Grundfos, Manufacturing Technology Centre, National Composites Centre, Rolls Royce, SAFRAN, Southwest Research Institute, SWRIM, Tecnalia, Tesla, Transvalor S.A., TWI Ltd, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya - CIMNE, University of Strathclyde/AFRC, Warwick University / WMG, Wilde Analysis
The Manufacturing Process Simulation Working Group aims to be a focal point for independent and reliable information on simulation capabilities and requirements, specifically by pursuing its goals of:
