CAASE 2018 Conference Recap
Recently, ESRD attended and presented at The Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering (CAASE) 2018 from June 5-7 in Cleveland, OH. This event was co-sponsored by NAFEMS and Digital Engineering.
Our President & CEO Dr. Ricardo Actis joined other simulation experts to discuss Simulation Governance & Democratization of Simulation, in addition to other topics in CAE-related technologies & solutions. He also gave a presentation on “The Role of Simulation Governance in the Democratization of Simulation through the Use of Smart Sim Apps”. Below is an excerpt from the presentation abstract:
The technical and business value of numerical simulation performed by engineers across many industries, including those in the aviation, aerospace, and defense sector, is well established. However, the performance requirements and complexity of the products that engineers in these industries design has dramatically increased. This has created additional demands on the engineering organization to improve the speed, accuracy, and reliability of the simulation function. Incremental improvements to legacy finite element methodologies and software tools based upon them, are reaching a point of diminishing return as they struggle to address these new business challenges. All of this is occurring at the same time that the capabilities and complexity of these traditional FEA‐based tools require ever greater levels of expertise and specialization from the engineering staff. Simulation Governance, a concept that originated from the appreciation that numerical simulation is a highly complex activity, is essential to address these challenges.

ESRD’s Leadership Joins Rev-Sim As Sponsors and Simulation Experts
As mentioned in our recent post on CAASE 2018, Drs. Ricardo Actis & Barna Szabó have joined RevolutioninSimulation.org (or Rev-Sim) as Sponsors, Simulation Experts and Topic Moderators on Simulation Governance.
What is Rev-Sim?
From “Who We Are” under About Rev-Sim Initiative:
The Revolution in Simulation non-profit initiative and the Rev-Sim.org website are the results of an open collaboration and alliance between a number of leading simulation industry professionals who have volunteered their time, expertise, and passion.

Engineering.com on “Launching the Simulation Revolution”
Engineering.com’s Michael Alba recently wrote an article on the Analysis, Simulation, and Systems Engineering Software Strategies (ASSESS) initiative, the challenges in Democratization of Simulation and how the new Rev-Sim initiative is providing leadership and expertise in the CAE community:
The simulation revolution brings us back to the idea of democratization. Think of it this way: democratization of simulation is the end goal, and the revolution in simulation is how we—i.e., the broader CAE community—can get there. It’s like the French revolution, but hopefully with less beheadings.
A new web portal, RevolutionInSimulation.org (Rev-Sim.org for short) aims to be the online ecosystem for the simulation revolution. Launched this past May, Rev-Sim.org is a non-profit cross-industry initiative working to democratize simulation.
