CIMdata to Offer Workshops for the Simulation and Analysis & Systems Engineering Communities

Workshops will take place in Cincinnati, Ohio on 30 April & 1 May


Ann Arbor, Michigan, 6 March 2013—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces that CIMdata’s Simulation & Analysis Knowledge Council and Systems Engineering Knowledge Council will offer two one-day workshops in Cincinnati, Ohio. These workshops will explore emerging best practices on how to address the critical issues facing participants in the simulation and analysis, and systems engineering communities.

On 30 April, CIMdata’s Simulation & Analysis Knowledge Council and a select group of leading-edge users will share how they have been able to create a competitive advantage by deploying simulation and analysis to facilitate product and manufacturing system development. The workshop, now in its tenth year, will be facilitated by CIMdata’s practice manager for Simulation & Analysis, Dr. Keith Meintjes.

The workshop will focus on two critical areas; the democratization of simulation and simulation capabilities, maturity, and readiness. The objective of simulation democratization is to make simulation available to a wider audience for collaboration and to engineer the system across domains and disciplines. Simulation capability, maturity, and readiness refer to the ways organizations must develop the capability to apply simulation reliably, while producing repeatable results.

On 1 May, CIMdata’s Systems Engineering Knowledge Council will host its inaugural workshop. The workshop will show how a competitive advantage may be created through the deployment of systems engineering as a strategy for product development. Real-world examples will be provided by council participants and leading-edge users. The workshop will be facilitated by CIMdata’s practice manager for Systems Engineering, John MacKrell.

Both workshops will provide attendees with time to network with domain experts from CIMdata, council participants, and others interested in these topics.
