Siemens presence at NAFEMS World Congress, Tampa FL (May 15-18)

By Christina Kothlow and Ravi_Shankar

NAFEMS, the international association for the engineering modeling, analysis and simulation community, is holding its world congress in Tampa, May 15-18. Siemens is once again proud to sponsor this global event and we look forward to meeting you there!

Our sponsor presentation is titled “Enhancing product design with simulation, optimization, and workflow integration – examples from industry” brings together 2 engaging presentations and a panel discussion.

Dan Mekker from Siemens Energy will outline their journey to successfully meeting challenging customer product needs with short time-to-market solutions, through the use of advanced product design methodologies like multi-discipline optimization and seamless dataflow – all enabled by powerful software tools including Simcenter, NX, HEEDS, and Teamcenter.

Max Dixon, Senior Applied Sciences Engineer Crux Product Design, will then share some examples of how they are using advanced simulation tools and design exploration methods to arrive at innovative solutions for consumer products and medical applications.

We will follow these presentations with an engaging panel discussion with our speakers, moderated by S. Ravi Shankar, Director Simcenter Marketing, where we explore challenges in implementing such strategies, how to overcome them and the impact of emerging technologies such as AI/ML.

We also have a strong set of presentations in the general sessions:
