The changing role of Engineering Simulation* is really about business benefits. However, achieving those benefits and associated growth of the Engineering Simulation market is tempered due to the lack of expertise available. A simulation revolution needs to occur bring a whole new set of opportunities and challenges.
The ASSESS Initiative is a broad reaching multi-industry initiative with a primary goal to facilitate a revolution of enablement that will vastly increase the availability and utility of Engineering Simulation, leading to significantly increased usage and business benefits across the full spectrum of industries, applications and users. The vision of the ASSESS Initiative is to bring together key players for guiding and influencing the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering. To achieve this vision the ASSESS Initiative will collaborate with multiple activities and organizations across the complete spectrum of Engineering Simulation.
The primary annual event for the ASSESS Initiative is the annual ASSESS Congress. The ASSESS 2017 Congress will be held Nov 1-3, 2017 at the Bolger Center in Potomac, MD and is limited to 150 attendees.
*Engineering Simulation as used by the ASSESS Initiative refers to Analysis, Simulation, and Systems Engineering technologies and associated usage in the engineering applications domain.
