Why Do Engineering Simulation? Training Course

A new course providing reasons and information for using engineering simulation.

Short 1-Day Training Course

Engineering simulation of all types has become widely used and universally accepted in almost if not all industry sectors. It is a powerful technology able to reduce time and costs however there are many components to its successful use.

The course describes engineering simulation and provides the basic reasons for its use, including real world case studies and examples. It also describes the basic requirements that are needed, such as computers, software and engineering resources including some history and briefly describes a few of the most common methods employed. Some issues to be aware of are presented and some best practices regarding engineering knowledge are proposed.



Interaction is encouraged throughout the course. Questions and class participation are encouraged, as this is one of the key aspects of making this a unique experience for each attendee. The course describes engineering simulation and provides the basic reasons for its use, including real world case studies and examples  describes the basic requirements that are needed, such as computers, software and engineering resources including some history and briefly describes a few of the most common methods employed.

NAFEMS, the only vendor neutral, not-for-profit organization with the aim of promoting the effective and reliable use of engineering simulation, provides this course that is completely software independent. Attendees are welcome to bring laptops to take notes but a full set of printed and bound notes will be issued.


Who Should Attend?

This course is aimed at directors, managers and team leaders of departments, companies or institutions that either do not know about engineering simulation and its advantages, have some knowledge but have not yet started using engineering simulation or wish to justify the use of engineering simulation within their organization.

If you have sufficient attendees or a group of potential attendees then a tailor made course may be more suitable and NAFEMS can then work closely with you to cater for your specific industry sector or analysis type.

The course is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS..
