Jeff Rowe of MCADCafe posts a blog on MCADCafe Newsletter about the ASSESS Initiative Positioning Papers regarding Democratization of Engineering Simulation (DoES) and Aligning Commercial, Government, and Research Engineering Simulation Efforts.View Summary
Jeff Rowe comments:
“The second paper is particularly interesting because the Democratization of Engineering Simulation is implemented in many forms. While there are many common characteristics, issues and opportunities across them all, there are also critical differences that need to be identified and explained, to enable a path to achievable solutions.
The first aspect of any form of implementation of DoES is whether or not it is driven by customers or providers of Engineering Simulation. The second aspect in any form of implementation of DoES is the type of customer that this form of implementation is intended to be used by (Large Enterprise, Small-Medium Business (SMB), Industry Consortium, mixture of customer types).
. . .
The paper surmises that the Democratization of Engineering Simulation, not too surprisingly, is likely to require significant changes to current business models for engineering simulation software and computing infrastructures.
. . .
This paper reinforces what we have witnessed over the past several years. Namely, engineering simulation being conducted earlier and more often in the product development process by ‘non-specialists,’ such as designers and engineers.”
