What is Simulation Governance?

Simulation governance refers to the exercise of command and control over all aspects of numerical simulation. When the goal of simulation is the formulation of design rules then the objective of simulation governance is to seek nearly optimal allocation of resources between physical experimentation and numerical simulation and to improve the predictive performance of mathematical models over time through.

  • The selection and adoption of the best available numerical simulation technology.
  • The formulation and ranking of mathematical models.
  • Data and solution verification procedures.
  • The revision of mathematical models in the light of new information collected from physical experiments and observation of unexpected events.

Every new experiment presents an opportunity to update existing calibration records and, when an experiment is outside of the range of existing calibration records, evaluate the predictive performance of mathematical models. When the goal of simulation is the application of design rules then the objective of simulation governance is to ensure that design processes include solution and data verification. In the interest of efficiency and reliability simulation governance is also concerned with standardization of recurring simulation tasks.
