CIMdata to Host a Free Webinar on the History & Future of Simulation
This educational webinar will look at where simulation was 10 years ago and where it is heading.
A decade ago, CIMdata's Dr. Keith Meintjes gave a keynote address at a Hewlett-Packard simulation conference. His presentation, "The Rise of Simulation,"
This webinar will help attendees:
• Understand the history of simulation from the 1960s, when it was mainly developed in-house by companies and the National Labs, to the 2010s when simulation was everywhere.
• Find out what Moore's Law is and its impact on product development.
• Learn about cultural and deployment considerations.
• Learn more about where we are going with Moore's Law, the human factors, and the importance of innovation.
• Find out how to best leverage future technology changes and developments.
According to Dr. Keith Meintjes, CIMdata Fellow, and the host for this webinar, "The history is still interesting, as are the predictions. We mostly, I think, got it right. This webinar will review what was said 10 years ago, and again take a look to the future from today's perspective."
Dr. Meintjes has over 35 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 joining CIMdata, he spent nearly 30 years at General Motors where he was responsible for the engineering requirements for GM's Global CAE IT infrastructure and was named Senior Technical Fellow. At GM Powertrain he held strategic, planning, and management positions, to embed simulation tools in the powertrain product development process. Earlier, at the GM Research Laboratories, he developed thermodynamic and CFD simulation models for engine performance and combustion and was instrumental in GM's acquisition of a Cray supercomputer.
This webinar will be useful to a wide audience including product development engineering managers, product design architects, CAE (simulation)
