Improving the Impact of Engineering Simulation

1 Day Awareness Seminar - Thursday, 25th January

Virtual Engineering is routinely used as a key tool in the development, optimisation, and verification of products alongside design guidelines and prototypes testing.

For a considerable part of the process the only available assessments originate from simulations, engineers must therefore ensure the virtual results are not only delivered but also effectively used.

This includes meeting several criteria such as timing, accuracy, robustness, limitations and suggestions appropriate to the project stage. Setting the quality requirements in this loop has been a common responsibility for the simulation specialists and the consumers of simulation results.Now virtual engineering is becoming more accessible so engineers can design to meet performance, cost and feasibility.

Getting all this right is crucial to ensuring Engineering Analysis has the desired impact on product development. In this seminar speakers will give their experience of ensuring that the effective use of Engineering Analysis has led to substantive improvements in the product development process.

Who Should Attend?

Managers, Engineers and Analysts keen to understand how virtual engineering is used and perceived in the project development  and what are the next steps to ensure quality in the delivery through simulations. 


  • Using virtual engineering to impact on product quality
  • Deployment of appropriate engineering simulation technologies
  • Integrating manufacturing simulation into the design process
  • Measuring quality of engineering simulation.
