The next generation of Simcenter at Realize LIVE: Co-creating tomorrow’s experience today

By Joel Davison

Be part of the Innovation and Ideation community

Before we launch into presentations and success from more than 60 Simcenter customers, the Innovation and Ideation community at Siemens is hosting a workshop to explore the future of Simcenter.  How does tomorrow, next year, next decade look? 

Using design thinking, we will discuss challenges you face working with simulation teams across your organization so that new simulation and test products are designed to meet and exceed your engineering goals.  

I found the tools used to propose and discuss the topic very interesting. Although we had a short amount of time, I believe there was a good amount of discussion and progress. 

Customer Participant

What does that look like? 

After a full-breakfast, the workgroup will get a sneak peek at the current low-fidelity proto-type of the next generation of Simcenter. After a demonstration, we will spend a couple of hours in discussion, designing our own paper prototypes of the user interface. 

This is an opportunity to meet the team behind the next generation of Simcenter and network with a small exclusive group of customers who use Simcenter in their work.  

We have a limited number of free event passes, a value of €1195 or $1,495, to Realize LIVE Munich or Las Vegas for participants. Please complete this form, and someone from Siemens will reach out to confirm your participation and event pass status.   

We are looking at setting up similar collaboration techniques within our company.

  • Get feedback on a prototype
