Simulation in the Automotive Industry: Creating the Next Generation Vehicle 2019

Simulation in the Automotive Industry: Creating the Next Generation Vehicle

Date: November 14th, 2019
Location: Troy, MI (USA)

Preliminary Agenda Now Available


The automotive engineering community is now confronting the largest technology transformation since its inception. This includes the electrification of powertrains for more efficient consumption and cleaner emissions, the reinvention of the battery with fast wireless charging capabilities and finally the advent of a fully autonomous vehicle. Compounding to these technology changes, the automotive companies design verification process is moving away from a major reliance on physical testing to almost a full virtual simulation product verification process.

Hence, the challenges to the automotive engineers are enormous and require a significant increase in the upfront use of numerical simulation capabilities, methods and processes such they’re able to efficiently design, manufacture and deliver these very innovative technologies to the market in greater speeds than ever before.

Topics presented and discussed at this conference will address various questions, such as

  • What CAE techniques are being used to drive various powertrain electrification design alternatives (i.e., HEVs, PHEVs, EBVs)
  • How can I democratize engineering analysis & simulation through automation, embedded intelligence and smart processes?
  • How do I overcome technical challenges to enable faster & smoother transition from physical to virtual Design Validation testing?
  • What are the latest simulation solutions/techniques applied to deliver current and future sustainability requirements (e.g., light weighting, alternative-propulsion, fuel economy, ultra-low emissions)?
  • What are some pragmatic simulation case studies applicable to the design & development of level-4 & level-5 autonomous vehicles?
  • What steps should I take when exploring the widening technology landscape (i.e., application of AI, generative-design, etc.)?
  • How can I better leverage systems modeling & simulation to improve the safety, reliability, NVH and functional performance of next-generation vehicles?


NAFEMS Americas and invited speakers will cover these topics, and more, at, “Engineering Analysis & Simulation in the Automotive Industry: Creating the Next Generation Vehicle." Located at the MEC in Troy, MI, attendees from the major automotive manufacturers and suppliers will gather at this annual event, in a pre-competitive manner, to exchange ideas, identify best practices, and drive the near-future direction of technology.

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