Update on UMC4ES (Unified Model Characteristics for Engineering Simulation)

Update on UMC4ES (Unified Model Characteristics for Engineering Simulation)

There is a rapidly growing need for a better understanding of model characteristics related to Engineering Simulation Models. Multiple initiatives propose Engineering Simulation metadata (ES Metadata) structures, each taking a different approach to defining a pragmatic metadata structure based on its perspective and goals.

Unified Model Characteristics for Engineering Simulation (UMC4ES) is an attempt to define a comprehensive set of model characteristics (metadata) of interest for the complete range of Engineering Simulation Models that can be used across all applications. The objective of UMC4ES is to provide a comprehensive definition of the metadata required to describe the characteristics of all types of Engineering Simulation Models. It is intended for this characterization to describe and link the characteristics of the model and its intended use over its entire lifecycle for all relevant stakeholders to support processes, activities, business purposes, and higher-level models.

In this webinar, we will review UMC4ES Draft 4.0, which NAFEMS is considering as the basis for a standard on Engineering Simulation Metadata.
