NAFEMS seeks input on the big issues in aerospace engineering simulation

A new conference will explore how simulation tools help with increased demand for complexity in processes, certification, and deployment.  

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.  At the same time, regulatory interests and customers are making greater demands of aerospace manufacturers regarding engineering processes, certification issues, deployment, and MRO (maintenance, repair, operations).

NAFEMS Americas — the North American branch of the non-profit International Association for the Engineering Modeling, Analysis and Simulation — is seeking experts to speak at a new conference exploring these challenging issues in aerospace simulation. The one-day conference, “Aerospace Simulation Engineering: The Big Issues,” will be in Wichita, Kansas, November 8, 2017.  NIAR, the Wichita State University National Institute for Aviation Research, is a co-sponsor of the event.

In a statement, NAFEMS Americas says the current industry “demands that engineers design safe and reliable aircraft, meet increasingly stringent fuel-economy standards, invent cost-effective approaches for exploiting new fabrication techniques such as additive manufacturing and use of cutting-edge design-for-purpose materials. Utilizing 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.”

NAFEMS Americas seeks experts to present on the following topics:

  • Simulation Governance
  • Democratization
  • Certification by Simulation
  • Systems Simulation
  • SDM Implementation
  • Manufacturing Process Simulation
  • HPC Deployment
  • Simulation & Additive Manufacturing

Located at the NIAR training facility in Wichita, KS, “Aerospace Simulation Engineering: The Big Issues” will cover these topics and more, gathering attendees from the aerospace industry in a non-competitive environment to exchange ideas, identify best practices, and drive the near-future direction of engineering simulation technology and utilization strategy.

This event aims to deliver information and insights on critical topic areas in a manner that maximizes the take-away value for attendees.

The Call for Abstracts is open through August 18, 2017. To access the abstract template, as well as additional related details, please visit the Call for Abstracts page.
