Role of Engineering Simulation within Digital Transformation

Role of Engineering Simulation within Digital Transformation

NAFEMS Iberia Seminar


NAFEMS Iberia held a full-day ONLINE seminar on 04 March 2021. The seminar was planned as a face-to-face event in Madrid but due to covid restrictions it will now take place online. This replaces the conference originally planned for Barcelona during November 2020 rescheduled due to the covid-19 pandemic. This seminar was a follow up to the very successful “How Simulation Helps Manufacturing Processes” seminar day arranged in Bilbao in May 2017 attended by over 70 delegates and 5 sponsors.

Digital transformation is helping engineering simulation engineers become more innovative and creative, driven by their efforts to improve product performance at all levels while reducing costs. This exerts constant pressure on CAE teams in industry, research institute and university who need to respond quickly and cleverly to novel client demands.

The Seminar was a venue for meeting like-minded engineers for knowledge sharing provided by keynote and other presentations from researchers, developers and users interspersed with open discussions on digital transformation areas such as:

  • Digital Manufacturing
  • Novel Manufacturing Processes
  • Virtual Testing
  • Multibody Simulation
  • Digital Twins
  • Machine Learning
