Integrating analysis with the product design process is one of the most talked about topics in the analysis community today. Software vendors, industrial users, and engineering managers all realize the vital importance of timely integration of analysis in the design process, but the visions, opinions and priorities placed on this can vary from one company to the next.

 

The reality is that many questions remain unanswered

What importance do industry leaders place on design integration?

How quickly will we see the transition to a fully-integrated process?

How will the industry handle the obvious challenges now and in the future?

How many other companies are struggling with the options?

How are they handling this?

Does the industry know what its users actually want?

In it's role as The International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community, NAFEMS aims to bring the industry together in order to answer these questions.The Symposium on the Integration of Analysis in Product Design is the first event of its kind, and will provide attendees with a truely unique insight into how the industry is prepared to handle the challenges ahead.

Format

In a roundtable format, industry leaders will share their vision for the future of analysis as an integrated component in product design.Attendees will have the opportunity to hear directly from the developers how they plan to handle the integration challenges that they will be facing in the coming years. The floor will be open for participants to question, challenge or expand on the plans described by the panelists.

Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to learn how others facing similar challenges have resolved their integration issues. If your company has determined that product simulation and analysis is going to be a growing part of your product design process, this symposium will be the best place to learn how the industry is growing and how to best prepare for it while making sure your needs are heard.

FEA and CFD:
Challenges and Best-Modelling Practices for the Aerospace Industry

Wednesday 15th November 2006
Anaheim, CA, USA

Register your place now at www.nafems.org

The pace of development in the aerospace market is accelerating faster than ever and the role of FEA and CFD is a major part of today's product development processes. One of the major challenges for all analysts in the aerospace industry is in producing solid, coherent analysis to best-practise guidelines in a manner which can show management the true value and benefit of FEA and CFD. This industry-focussed workshop will bring together analysts from across the aerospace industry to discuss, review and discover best-modelling practices, whilst highlighting the challenges that all users of analysis, and their management, should be considering.

Who should attend?

This seminar will be of interest to analysts, engineers and managers working for Aerospace OEMs, suppliers and consultants. Many companies are facing significant challenges in relation to their work and this seminar presents an opportunity to share experiences, ideas and advice with others in the industry.

The workshop will be held alongside the Aerospace Design Expo 2006 in the Anaheim Conference Center.
