Model-Based Engineering: What Is It & How Will It Impact Engineering Simulation?

Model-Based Engineering: What Is It & How Will It Impact Engineering Simulation?

Date:October 1st, 2019
Location: The Fawcett Center, Columbus, OH (USA)

Preliminary Agenda Now Available


Business growth depends on developing new and improved products and technologies, and getting these to market ahead of the competition. The digitalization of our lives today is driving an ever faster-paced environment, and developing products based on skills and capabilities in specific engineering domains is no longer sufficient. The demand for systems-level solutions is driving a need to merge systems engineering and engineering simulation to a new level.

Combining the modeling and simulation perspectives of both systems engineering and engineering simulation can improve communications and coordination across the product development lifecycle. An early reliance on simulation can enable agile approaches in which prototypes and visualizations contribute to elicitation and refinement of expectations and alternatives in collaboration with system stakeholders. Simulation throughout the product lifecycle can reduce risk, more thoroughly explore alternative solutions, and reduce costs over physical testing.

This conference will explore how model-based engineering, along with the challenges that accompany it, will need to be applied within engineering simulation to help address the increasing sophistication of models and tools to predict a wide range of physical phenomena, including how to understand the user domain, to define functions and concepts, and to capture system requirements across the levels of a system architecture.


NAFEMS and participating speakers will cover these topics, and more, at the “Model-Based Engineering: What Is It & How Will It Impact Engineering Simulation?" Conference. Attendees from all industries will gather at this event, in a non-competitive environment, to exchange ideas, identify best practices, and drive the near-future direction of technology.

This conference 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 industry will provide the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and practices, which attendees can later share and apply within their own organizations.
