Webinar Overview

Engineering simulation is often lost within its own self-inflicted silos. Significant advances in SPDM have sought to rectify this over the past few years; however, broad enterprise deployment of SPDM continues to be a rare occurrence. For simulation to break free from these silos and have a broader financial impact on an enterprise, SPDM needs to be implemented and deployed seamlessly within the broader enterprise, especially as required to support implementations of Digital Threads and Digital Twins. This webinar explored how these platform concepts can advance the use and impact of analysis and simulation in the coming decade.
