The upcoming Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering (CAASE20) virtual event is now just six weeks away, and organizers have announced a new keynote presentation. Peter Langsten, management consultant and CEO of Predict Change, and Marc Halpern, research vice president of manufacturing at Gartner, will co-present a session titled “Simulation Governance is Key to Delivering Best-of-Class Products in the Age of COVID-19.”
CAASE20, co-presented by NAFEMS Americas and Digital Engineering, will be held June 16-18, and feature more than 200 presentations and training sessions from leading simulation experts and end users.
The newly announced keynote will focus on remote design and collaboration. According to the session description:
Delivering best-of-class products during the COVID-19 pandemic demands socially distant yet productive and collaborative design work. On-premise simulation governance before COVID-19 was important but challenging. Socially distant collaborative design makes it a priority. This session discusses trends and expectations in collaborative engineering, the emergence of governance- particularly simulation governance- in industrial innovation, and best practices and recommendations.
Langsten specializes in product Information management for manufacturers, and has delivered innovative technical IT solution strategy and implementation lead services at leading, international corporations. Halpern focuses on design, engineering and product life cycle management strategies and software applications in the manufacturing sector. He is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers and is a registered professional engineer in the State of New York.
Other keynote speakers include Geoffrey Moore, author of Crossing the Chasm, Harvey Mudd College President Maria Klawe, and Monica Schnitger, president of Schnitger Corp.
