The conference comes at an important point in the application of CFD and related CAE technologies in the industry. Billions are bet on new and increasingly complex products. Systems integrators are reducing their business risk by partnering with suppliers around the world who can engineer their own parts. Engineering services themselves are being outsourced more and more in a global economy. Even the Defense Industry is feeling the pressure, responding with greater adoption of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products and partnering with commercial companies to develop dual-use technologies.
These industry trends have made the ability of globally deployed CFD and enterprise-wide CAE technologies to enhance product quality, reduce design and development timelines, and cut costs tremendously important. The rising price of fuel has also pushed the need for greater efficiencies, not only in terms of reduced costs but in driving the search for new designs to deal with pending tighter regulations in fields such as acoustics and carbon emissions, and the search for alternative fuel sources. These factors make the IACC a timely event of international significance.
