2-Day Training Course : 28th & 29th January 2014
Engineering simulation plays an increasing role in industry search for competitiveness and technology based innovation at any stage of the design, qualification /certification of their products. Key decisions and product qualification/certification more and more rely on virtual tests and digital simulation, which create a major paradigm shift; thereby physical tests objective is progressively moving from a demonstration of compliance to a reference for analysis validation. This trend in industry is shown through adoption of new wording such as « realistic simulation », « High Fidelity required simulation » or « virtual testing ». This situation creates new responsibility for the engineer to guarantee the required confidence level .Hence this new approach requires secured processes for the verification and validation of models and analyses bringing evidence of their predictive capability. In particular, programme managers ask now for formal evidence on "simulation fit for purpose" on which they can build confidence and take decisions.
In addition, the increasing situation for extended enterprise creates new constraints to guarantee safe and robust analysis processes. At the same time, and due to the economic pressure, V&V activities are exclusively seen as an additional cost that can easily be reduced and even fully cut, thus underestimating the induced risks. Finally V&V implementation is not easy to because of the diversity of involved persons: managers, simulation experts, test specialists, software developers and quality controllers, software vendors…
The main objectives for this course are to do in-depth presentation of:
Participants should have a few years of experience in engineering simulation for the design and development of industrial products.
All industry sectors confronted with simulation V&V and realistic simulation, are concerned with this training programme. The course is established on the solid knowledge of the tutors and the vision they have developed from their rich industrial experience, especially within the aerospace and energy industries.
The course is neutral and independent of any particular software solution.
We limit the number of participants to a small group to facilitate dialog and exchanges between participants. Specific attention is given to participants’ concerns thanks to a questionnaire which is sent in advance to the course.

This course is tutored by Jean-Francois IMBERT and Philippe PASQUET, high-level simulation professionals both benefiting from a long academic and industrial experience gained from leading companies. Their skills extend from numerical methods to solving industrial problems, especially in aerospace and nuclear area, and to analysis management. V&V is one their key expertise, reason for which they have been asked for help by major European companies. They are recognized as leading figures in the engineering analysis community in France.
