Confidence

The focus of this ASSESS Initiative theme is to advocate for and enable a significant increase in confidence related to usage of Engineering Simulation*. Confidence in the simulations performed is essential to expanded usage of Engineering Simulation. The efforts related to this theme will be focused on exploring the issues associated with defining and establishing Engineering Simulation confidence.

  • Appropriate Model Fidelity
  • Verification & Validation
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • Risk Management
  • Deployment & Governance

Confidence in Engineering Simulation includes understanding numerical accuracy and uncertainty and much more to ensure that the right model has been solved at the appropriate fidelity to achieve the desired accuracy. Establishing Engineering Simulation confidence requires addressing: policies, best practices, procedures, skills & competencies,
expectations, and culture.

Simulation governance is the key to establishing and maintaining confidence by managing Engineering Simulation activities as a strategic asset to enable achieving specific business goals.

Increase Innovation
Increase Quality
Reduce Cost
Reduce Time
Reduce Risk

The ASSESS Initiative will explore the different issues associated with Engineering Simulation confidence and governance to provide understanding and guidance for all of those looking to develop or improve confidence in Engineering Simulation tools, proccesses, and activities. The ASSESS Initaitive is actively collaborating with NAFEMS and CIMdata  on this topic.

*Engineering Simulation as used by the ASSESS Initiative refers to Analysis, Simulation and Systems Engineering technologies and associated usage in the engineering applications domain.
