CIMdata to Host Free Webinar on Simulation Governance
Free educational webinar focused on managing simulation as a strategic capability, will take place on February 11, 2016. 2016-01-05 18:33:42
ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 5 January 2016—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Simulation Governance: Managing Simulation as a Strategic Capability.” The webinar will take place on February 11 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will propose that simulation is demonstrably superior to hardware-based test and development in a number of key ways.

The webinar will be an hour long and those attending will: gain an understanding of what Simulation Governance is; learn about the best practices for managing simulation for maximum impact; understand why managing simulation as a strategic capability is important; gain an awareness of the critical issues that must be addressed and how simulation may be used to solve them; and learn why it is of prime importance that companies start believing in their own capability along with specifics on how to address simulation capability and its impact on product development.

According to the webinar host, Dr. Keith Meintjes, a CIMdata Executive Consultant and an internationally known expert on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Simulation & Analysis, “Simulation is an increasingly important facet of PLM and needs to be managed and nurtured as a key capability, not just as a technology belonging to a few experts.”

Dr. Meintjes has over 30 years of experience in the development and application of simulation tools to transform product development. His achievements include novel methods for combustion simulation, patents for engine design, and strategic planning for the world’s largest commercial HPC facility. Prior to becoming a consultant, he spent nearly 30 years at General Motors (GM) where he was responsible for the engineering requirements for GM’s Global CAE IT infrastructure and was a Senior Technical Fellow.

The webinar will be useful to executives responsible for product and manufacturing system development, product engineering directors and managers, simulation professionals and practitioners, simulation methods development experts, PLM strategists, PLM sponsors and champions, PLM program and project managers, PLM software providers, PLM service providers, PLM channel partners, and anyone who wants to learn more about Simulation Governance.

During the webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed. To find out more, visit: ... To register for the webinar visit:
