Event Description

This presentation will discuss:

  • What is Manufacturing Process Simulation?
  • What are the potential benefits in its application – and what are the challenges?
  • What data could we take from manufacturing process simulation into a CAE simulation of the product performance?
  • A few examples…
  • Final remarks

    About this event

    This event is being hosted by the NAFEMS Manufacturing Process Simulation Working Group (MANWG). The MANWG has formed an online Community for all engineers who would like to learn more about the use of virtual manufacturing tools within the product design and manufacturing cycle to improve outcomes in industrial manufacturing processes. For more information and to get involved go to the Manufacturing Process Simulation Community webpage.

    This webinar is free to attend for anyone interested in finding out more about how manufacturing process simulation can add value to their products.


    Trevor Dutton, Dutton Simulation Ltd

    Trevor graduated from Durham University in 1986 with a 1st Class Honours degree in Engineering Science. He has worked in the field of non-linear finite element analysis since graduating, and from the early 90’s developed considerable experience in the simulation of sheet metal forming processes.

    Trevor founded Dutton Simulation Ltd In 2003, providing solutions to the manufacturing industry in the form of software, consultancy support and research & development. He is the author of the NAFEMS publication “Why Do Manufacturing Simulation” (2017), along with a number of papers and articles for the NAFEMS community. Trevor is also the Chair of the MANWG Metals Focus Group.


    Sjoerd Van der Veen, Airbus

    Sjoerd started simulating manufacturing processes when graduating at the Delft University of Technology in 1996. He worked in the metals industry, using numerical simulation to improve processes and products. Since 2006 he has been with Airbus, where in 2010 he became the first eXpert in the field of Material Modelling and Manufacturing Process Simulation. Between 2011 and 2019, Sjoerd has put in place experimentally validated simulation capability for the manufacturing chains around Laser Powder Bed Fusion and Directed Energy Deposition, simulating the additive manufacturing itself, but also heat treatments and other operations that are key for the development of residual stress. Sjoerd is also the Chair of the Metallic Additive Manufacturing Focus Group of the MANWG.
