Keynote Speakers Announced for ASSESS 2017 Congress

ASSESS: Analysis, Simulation, and Systems Engineering Software Strategies to enable a significant increase in usage and benefit of these technologies

Clarkesville, GA – August 29, 2017—ASSESS Initiative, a broad reaching multi-industry initiative to facilitate a revolution of enablement that will vastly increase the availability and effectiveness of Engineering Simulation* is proud to announce that Tina Morrison, Ph. D., Deputy Director, Division of Applied Mechanics, Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, U.S. Food and Drug Administration. and Bob Tickel, Director, Structural & Dynamic Analysis, Corporate R&T, Cummins Inc. will be the keynote speakers at the ASSESS 2017 CONGRESS. 

Tina Morrison is the chair of the new FDA-wide working group on Modeling and Simulation, sponsored by the Office of the Chief Scientist, which launched in 2017. She has been serving as the Regulatory Advisor of Computational Modeling for the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) since 2012.  Learn more about Tina Morrison.  Tina Morrison will be presenting on the “Advancing Regulatory Science and In Silico Medicine at the FDA”.

Bob Tickel is the Director of Structural & Dynamic Analysis, Corporate R&T at Cummins Inc. His group is primarily responsible for providing design guidance for key structural components and systems for future products as well as evaluating, developing and documenting new tools and methods.   Learn more about Bob Tickel. Bob Tickel will be presenting on “The Future of Modeling and Simulation at Cummins”.

“I am very pleased to be able to share my perspectives, to learn much more about the work going on with ASSESS and ultimately to help Cummins better prepare for the expected simulation revolution”, says Bob Tickel, Director, Structural & Dynamic Analysis, Corporate R&T, Cummins Inc.

The vision of the ASSESS Initiative is to bring together key players, both users and developers of simulation software, to guide and influence the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering.  Tina Morrison and Bob Tickel offer interesting and different views on the vision for Engineering Simulation.

“We are very excited to have excited to have Tina Morrison and Bob Tickel share their vision of simulation and experiences from two distinctly different applications”, says Joe Walsh, CEO & Co-Founder of the ASSESS Initiative. “Both speakers bring a wealth of insights into the role of simulation for their domain and are likely to initiate some very interesting questions and discussions.”

ASSESS 2017 is the second annual ASSESS Congress, which will be held November 1-3, 2017 in Potomac, Maryland at the Bolger Center. The ASSESS 2017 Congress is being organized by the ASSESS Initiative to help shape the industry and product strategies for the next decade related to Engineering Simulation to enable the required “simulation revolution”. Registration for the ASSESS 2017 Congress is by invitation only and is limited to 150 attendees. Those who have an invitation can register online at and those interested participating who do not yet have an invitation may Contact the ASSESS Initiative to apply for an invitation.  

ASSESS 2017 currently has three Platinum Sponsors (, NAFEMS, Siemens PLM Software), 24 Foundation Sponsors and  two Founding Sponsors ( intrinSIM, Cyon Research). Please check out the sponsor section of the ASSESS 2017 Congress web page to learn more about who is supporting the ASSESS 2017 Congress.

* The term “Engineering Simulation” as used by the ASSESS Initiative refers to Analysis, Simulation and Systems Engineering technologies and associated usage in the engineering applications domain.

About the ASSESS Initiative

The ASSESS Initiative was initially a joint activity by Cyon Research and intrinSIM for guiding and influencing the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering, with the primary objective of expanding the use and business benefit of these tools. ASSESS Initiative LLC was formed in mid-2016 to focus on taking the ASSESS vision forward.
