Aerospace Simulation Engineering: The Big Issues

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 | Wichita, KS


Aerospace manufacturers and suppliers are facing an increasingly challenging and competitive marketplace as their products are becoming more complex via tighter integration of systems and cyber-physical environments. The current industry demands that engineers design safe and reliable aircraft, meet increasingly stringent fuel-economy standards, invent cost-effective approaches for exploiting new fabrication techniques such as additive manufacturing and use of cutting-edge design-for-purpose materials. Utilizing the latest engineering simulation tools effectively, accurately and efficiently to meet business goals has never been more critical, as aerospace engineering continues to move into a highly-advanced technological space. 

NAFEMS Americas and NIAR are co-hosting a one-day event to facilitate awareness and a deeper discussion into how the following “Big Issues” identified by NAFEMS can address these challenges:

  • Simulation Governance
  • Democratization
  • Certification by Simulation
  • Systems Simulation
  • SDM Implementation
  • Manufacturing Process Simulation
  • HPC Deployment
  • Simulation & Additive Manufacturing

For more information on the "Big Issues", click here.


Located at the NIAR training facility in Wichita, KS, “Aerospace Simulation Engineering: The Big Issues," will cover these topics and more, gathering attendees from the aerospace industry in a non-competitive environment to exchange ideas, identify best practices, and drive the near-future direction of engineering simulation technology and utilization strategy.

This event aims to deliver information and insights on critical topic areas in a manner that maximizes the “take-away” value for attendees. An event agenda and concept championed by several leading figures in the aerospace industry will provide the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and practices, which attendees can later share and apply within their own organizations.

Call for Abstracts

The Call for Abstracts is now open. Abstracts will be accepted until end of day on Friday, August 18th, 2017
