Success with simulation as a driver of improved product costs, warranty costs, time to market, or reliability doesn't happen by accident. The most successful companies have strong management direction to ensure that the right projects get the right resources at the right times. In this class, managers and engineering leaders will learn to differentiate between user styles and tools for upfront engineering versus failure validation and recovery. We will share examples of successful organizations, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask global industry experts about their specific circumstances. This session covers all domains of simulation including FEA, CFD, and Digital Manufacturing.
- Understand how the different types of simulation solutions apply to different stages in the design process
- Learn strategies for making design engineers successful with trend studies
- Learn how to coach and question users to ensure computed information is reliable
- Understand how to structure a deployment plan to capitalize on the value of simulation with an assessment of key business objectives
