ASSESS Initiative Announces a Strategic Collaboration with the Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory

This strategic collaboration is focused on fostering broader use of “systems thinking,” systems modeling and simulation and detailed simulation of Sub-Systems.

This strategic collaboration is focused on fostering broader use of “systems thinking”, systems modeling & simulation and detailed simulation of subsystems.

ASSESS Initiative has established a strategic collaboration with the Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL) at Georgia Tech.

This strategic collaboration is focused on fostering broader use of “systems thinking,” systems modeling and simulation and detailed simulation of subsystems to enable a viable path to development and deployment of commercial grade digital twin(s). This strategic collaboration will bring together the resources of the ASSESS Initiative and ASDL to significantly increase the use and benefit of engineering simulation. Some of the planned activities in this collaboration include:

  • strong presence of ASDL at the ASSESS 2019 Congress;
  • Three attendees including the renowned Dr. Mavris
  • Platinum sponsorship
  • ASSESS Theme Workshops hosted by ASDL
  • Integration of Systems Simulation and detailed Sub-System Simulations
  • Engineering Simulation Digital Twin(s)
  • Other activities to be mutually agreed

“ASDL is always looking for collaborators to help advance the state of the art in systems thinking, design of complex systems, and engineering simulation,” says Dr. Dimitri Mavris, S.P. Langley NIA Distinguished Regents Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology and Director of ASDL. “In the ASSESS Initiative, we have found a great partner and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration.”

ASDL was founded in 1992 with a handful of students. Now the organization has grown to nearly 250 strong. The ASDL mission is to “formulate, develop, and implement comprehensive approaches to the design of affordable and high quality complex systems.”

“We are excited about this strategic collaboration with ASDL and the significant positive impact that we can jointly have on the Engineering Simulation community,” says Joe Walsh, CEO and co-founder of the ASSESS Initiative.

The ASSESS Initiative was formed to bring together key players, both users and developers of simulation software, to guide and influence the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering with a vision “to significantly expand the use and benefit of software tools for model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering in the engineering applications domain.”
