The NAFEMS Standards Initiative aims to identify and promote the maturity and industry adoption of those international standards (and best practice documents) that support engineering simulation and which enable integration with model-based engineering.
The key objectives are:
to provide awareness of existing standards that are relevant to engineering simulation
to provide a single source for all end-users and suppliers of engineering simulation to become familiar with these standards
to draw attention to standards in, or in need of, development
The standards include those developed by organisations such as ISO, NASA, BSI and ASME.
The standards are categorised by:
the maturity level - In Development / Under Review / Released / Implemented
the primary purpose - Data Management / Model Management / Quality Management / Simulation in Support of Design / Simulation Guidance
