Aras, the leader in open product lifecycle management (PLM) for the enterprise, today announced that Marc Lind, Aras SVP of Strategy, and Malcolm Panthaki, Aras Vice President of Analysis Solutions, will be presenting at the Aerospace Simulation Engineering conference, Navigating the Digital Thread, on Thursday, October 18th in Seattle, WA. Their presentation will explore the importance of simulation automation to enable advanced product design and the Digital Twin.

As aerospace manufacturers and suppliers face growing product complexity and marketplace competition, there has been a rising interest to include the Digital Thread as a communication framework for distributing product lifecycle information. Simulation software has long held an important place in the development of complex products. As product complexity increases and businesses seek opportunities for growth, simulation moves to the forefront.

In their presentation, “Intelligent Simulation is Foundational to Leveraging the Digital Thread and Digital Twins,” Mr. Lind and Mr. Panthaki will explore why effective simulation process and data management (SPDM) is essential for organizations to scale the use of simulation in order to replace physical testing and verify design. They will present use cases in the aerospace, heavy equipment, and electronics industries to demonstrate how various companies have achieved ROI through simulation process management. Attendees may join their presentation at 11:25 in room 1DE.

In addition to presenting, Aras will be an event sponsor. To schedule a meeting in advance, please contact Kim Anastasiou at [email protected].
