Announcements NAFEMS will host Key Challenges for Simulation/Analysis in the Aero Industry: The Growing Importance of Competence Management on October 28th at 2pm GMT.

The presentation identifies key challenges and trends in the aero industry. It highlights the growing importance of simulation management in the context of an increasing role of simulation in the aircraft design and certification.

From the FEA infancy in the 1960ís, Simulation and Analysis industrial relevance and recognition has continuously grown, especially in the aerospace sector. In the last two decades, engineering practice has been progressively moving from a test and experience based design to simulation-based design. Indeed, an efficient integration of simulation in the product design and development is bringing a clear competitive advantage with the following potential business benefits:
  • Lead time reduction
  • Improved and earlier performance optimization
  • Development cost reduction (e.g. on physical testing) or cost avoidance
  • First time right design (e.g. no costly late redesigns)....

However there is a considerable challenge to fully cash these benefits in the present context of globalization and massive technological innovation. Among key success factors is the implementation of Competence Management, a mandatory condition to ensure robust simulation processes in the whole supply chain.
