Aras, the only resilient platform provider for digital industrial applications, today announced that key executives will present at NAFEMS World Congress 2019 taking place June 17 – 20 in Québec City, Canada. NAFEMS is an international association for the engineering modeling, analysis and simulation community.

As products become increasingly complex, organizations need to manage an exponential number of product variants across the entire product lifecycle. To conduct this number of simulations at a rapid pace, it is critical to leverage a unified, flexible data model to ensure that data is not siloed and allows for increased accuracy and efficiency. Aras’ platform provides innovative, flexible solutions for simulation management across products’ entire lifecycles.

Aras will host two sessions at NAFEMS. In the first, titled, “Get the Data Right for Effective Multidisciplinary SPDM: Making the Case for a Tool-Independent Unified Data Model,” Malcolm Panthaki, VP of Analysis Solutions, and Marc Lind, SVP of Strategy, will discuss the need for organizations to use a tool-agnostic, unified, requirements-driven, systems-centric data model to best capture data for simulation and SPDM. Mr. Panthaki and Mr. Lind will present two case studies illustrating the approach and benefits of managing simulation data and automating complex multi-fidelity, multi-disciplinary simulations. The presentation will take place on Tuesday, June 18th at 1:40pm.

Aras will also host an interactive software demonstration and Q&A session titled, “Managing Simulation in the Digital Thread.” This session will focus on the way engineers can set the groundwork to efficiently run simulations that enforce repeatable best practices, while ensuring results are connected to the product’s configuration. The goal is to maintain a traceable digital thread of product information that includes simulation inputs and results. The Q&A will include Aras partners discussing the way their software combines with Aras simulation management capabilities to enhance automated generation of 3-D reports and postprocessing, and easily use the on-demand HPC capabilities of the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Attendees will learn how to leverage a collaborative, flexible solution to scale the use of simulation throughout the entire product lifecycle. This interactive session will take place on Wednesday, June 19th at 1:20pm during the conference sponsor track.

In addition to speaking, Aras is an event sponsor. All attendees are encouraged to visit the Aras booth, G3, for more information or for demos of the Aras Platform. To schedule a meeting in advance, please contact Kim Anastasiou at [email protected].
