Aerospace Simulation Engineering – LOTAR EAS, International Standards and How They Relate to the Digital Transformation

This presentation was made at NAFEMS Americas 2018 Seminar, "Aerospace Simulation Engineering - Navigating the Digital Thread".

Aerospace manufacturers and suppliers are facing an increasingly challenging and competitive marketplace as their products are becoming more complex via tighter integration of systems and cyber-physical environments. That being said, there are rising interests to incorporate Digital Threads as communication frameworks for sharing product lifecycle information seamlessly and Digital Twin methodologies for assessing virtually the expected and future operational physics-based capabilities of a product throughout its lifecycle. Utilizing these techniques in conjunction with the latest engineering simulation tools effectively, accurately and efficiently to meet business goals has never been more critical, as aerospace engineering continues to move into a highly-advanced technological space.


The LOTAR International EAS WG continues its ongoing efforts to communicate with users and software developers about progress towards supporting the need for LOTAR and management of EAS data.

The case will be made that LOTAR of EAS data, use of international standards for data interchange for analysis and simulation data and laying the groundwork for their use in science and engineering will aid in advancing the use of computer-aided analysis and simulation.
