Invitation & Agenda

Designer-Oriented Simulation: Putting Simulation Upfront

30th - 31st May 2022 - online
14:00pm CEST (Munich, Paris) | 08:00am EDT (New York)

+ + + please see agenda below (includes a panel discussion on 31st May) + + +

Find out why simulation experts and global corporations are bringing simulation right to the front of the design process.

Learn how best to avoid expensive design changes late on, and discover how to gain a real business advantage from the way you use simulation.

This online seminar will give you an overview of how bringing simulation upfront can give you the edge and explore the inherent challenges and pros & cons of this approach.

All presentations will be broadcast live, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions and get involved in the discussion.

We look forward to seeing you virtually.
Your NAFEMS team


The seminar is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS.
