The fundamental questions answered for companies considering engineering simulation.

Engineering simulation of all types has become widely used and universally accepted in almost if not all industry sectors. It is a powerful technology able to reduce time and costs however there are many components to its successful use.

The course investigates engineering simulation using the 5W1H process and provides the basic reasons for its use, including real world case studies and examples. It describes the basic requirements that are needed, such as computers, software and engineering resources including some history and briefly outlines a few of the most common methods employed. Some issues to be aware of are presented and some best practices regarding engineering knowledge are proposed.

Course Program

This course is short and combines information, examples, case studies and time for open discussion of the concepts presented.

  • Describe engineering simulation.
  • Justify the advantages of using engineering simulation.
  • Explain when engineering simulation should be carried out.
  • Brief descriptions of how we do engineering simulation.
  • Explanations of requirements to do engineering simulation.
  • Sectors using engineering simulation.
  • What to look for regarding engineer knowledge.

Who Should Attend?

Directors, managers and team leaders of departments, companies or institutions that either

  • do not know about engineering simulation and its advantages,
  • possibly have some knowledge but have not yet started using engineering simulation, or,
  • wish to justify the use of engineering simulation within their organization.
