All major industrial organizations employ numerical simulation in support of their engineering and business decision-making. Therefore using or not using numerical simulation is no longer a differentiator. The differentiator is: How smartly numerical simulation is being used? Depending on the answer, numerical simulation can be a significant corporate asset or a substantial corporate liability.
Simulation Governance is a managerial function concerned with assurance of reliability of information generated by numerical simulation. The term was introduced in 2011 and specific technical requirements were addressed from the perspective of mechanical design in 2012. Its strategic importance was addressed in NAFEMS Benchmark magazine in January 2015 . At the 2017 NAFEMS World Congress in Stockholm simulation governance was identified as the first of eight “big issues” in numerical simulation. Read more
The idea of simulation governance is easy to understand: The application of numerical simulation technology must be properly governed in every organization. In this article, ESRD Chairman and Co-Founder Dr. Barna Szabó explains that the responsibility for simulation governance rests with board-level executives. They exercise this responsibility through setting the goals, objectives and metrics to ensure that the economic value of numerical simulation is positive.
Learn why it is essential that Sim Apps implement Numerical Simulation technologies which enable the practice of Sim Gov in order for the vision of democratization of simulations to be realized, as well as why it is important for engineering managers to get on the Sim Gov train sooner rather than later.
This recent presentation discusses how the framework of Simulation Governance was applied to the development, verification and validation of a flaw-tolerant life prediction model for damaged rotorcraft components.
Unified model representation enhances knowledge-capture efficiency across multiple disciplines
Sim App for the computation of the energy release rate along a delamination front of a Pi-Joint. Ply-by-ply modeling and automatic lamination using 3D-solid elements enable the creation and deployment of this App in a Desktop CAE-Handbook.
Technical paper for Sim App requirements published in June 2016.
What is the meaning of simulation, numerical simulation and Simulation Governance? What is the role of Simulation Governance in the adoption and deployment of FEA-based simulation apps? This presentation addresses these questions and more…

American Axle & Manufacturing Sees Dramatic Productivity Gains, Cost Savings from Automating NVH Analysis Process with Comet NVH Driveline SimApp
A plan for simulation governance has to be tailored to fit the mission of each organization or department within an organization.
The below link provides a list of important resources both on the background of Simulation Governance, but also its implementation, scope, practical usage in industry and more…
