The NAFEMS Standards Initiative

The NAFEMS Standards Initiative

The NAFEMS Standards Initiative has produced a website compendium of international standards (and best practice documents) which are applicable to engineering simulation and which enable integration with model-based engineering. The overall goal of this initiative is to identify and promote the maturity and industry adoption of those international standards that support engineering simulation.The key objectives are:

 

 

-to provide awareness of the 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 the existing standards;
-to draw attention to those standards being developed or in need of development.

 

 

Standards that will be captured include those developed by the European, American and International professional standards and engineering organisations such as ISO, NASA, BSI and ASME. This is an ongoing initiative and we would welcome your feedback on:

 

 

-the current standards that have already been identified as part of this initiative,
-additional information on the standards that have already been captured
-details of standards that supersede one that has already been identified by this initiative.

 

To find a detailed description of what is covered in the standard hover your mouse over the text in the "Standard" column.

 

Please use this survey link to tell us about standards that should be included in this initiative, more information on the standards that have already been identified and details of standards that supersede the listed documents.
