The NAFEMS Simulation Governance and Management Working Group (SGMWG) shall provide a vendor-neutral, end-user driven consortium that promotes advancement of the technology and practices associated with all aspects of managing engineering simulation processes and techniques. It will support the mission of the international NAFEMS organisation, namely:
Engineering analysis and simulation processes, procedures, and best practices for ensuring quality and reliable simulations are recognised as strategic business assets within all companies utilising virtual engineering product development techniques.
The focus of the Simulation Governance and Management Working Group is to champion and improve best practices that relate to engineering analysis and simulation. It will promote and enrich simulation management practices aligned with the rapidly-developing technologies in advancing the productivity and quality of virtual product development processes. This includes the development and promotion of requirements and standards that will have general benefits to the international engineering analysis and simulation community.
The Simulation Governance and Management Working Group has begun developing a series of discussion videos tackling key topics within the group's scope. The videos are available to watch via the group's 'Discussion Videos' page.
