NAFEMS mission is to provide knowledge, international collaboration, and educational opportunities for the use and validation of engineering simulation.

In recent years, we have made efforts to educate the community on the key elements of democratization and simulation governance, which includes partnering with industry thought leaders to capture and disseminate information. An example of this includes the “Simulation 20/20: The Next Five Years” webinar series, which saw NAFEMS partner with a number of industry thought leaders and end-user companies to deliver a year-long webinar series covering three major themes: Democratization, Simulation Governance, and Business Challenges. In particular, the Democratization series consisted of an introductory webinar and four additional sessions on Knowledge Capture & Reuse, Usability, Accessibility, and Next-Generation Simulation Environment. These five sessions alone were attended by over 1,200 individuals and have served as a resource to the community since.

NAFEMS continues to collaborate with other organizations and initiatives, such as Revolution in Simulation, to drive awareness and disseminate information to the greater engineering analysis and simulation community.

NAFEMS, a not-for-profit organization established in 1983, is the only worldwide independent association dedicated to engineering simulation. Currently, there are more than 1300 member organizations worldwide ranging from major global corporations through small-scale engineering consultants.
