How simulation helps manufacturing processes
NAFEMS Iberia has joined with the Manufacturing process Simulation Working Group (MANWG) to arrange a seminar dedicated to manufacturing simulation to create more awareness for the benefits of using numerical simulation to drive cost reduction and the concept of zero-prototyping across a range of sectors.

The seminar will take place at the AIC-Automotive Intelligence Center in the Parque Empresarial Boroa, close to one of the large manufacturing areas in Spain. The seminar will present a variety of industrial applications in an attempt to create awareness and further promote the use of simulation thereby improving processes, systems and decision-making while reducing costs.

All sectors are welcome and we would encourage companies to seek and collaborate cross-sector.
