Hands-On Workshop: Simulation of Manufacturing Processes


Throughout April and June 2016, MSC will be offering a series of free, hands-on workshops that will teach engineers how to simulate complex manufacturing processes such as forming, joining and welding. In addition to providing an overview of the use of finite element analysis (FEA) in various process simulations, these workshops will give you an opportunity to use a world-class simulation solution to create models and perform manufacturing process analysis. If you are looking to optimize your manufacturing processes and reduce repetitive, expensive physical testing, this workshop is for you. Click here to register: http://bit.ly/1WJwNVZ

Computer simulation is playing a critical role in analyzing manufacturability, effects of material properties and tolerances on final product performance, and optimization of process parameters for product performance and efficiency. Companies that invest in a robust CAE solution enjoy reduced manufacturing costs by optimizing process parameters, savings in material usage, and lower product development costs with fewer repetitive physical test.


The benefits of attending to this workshop include learning the concepts of simulation applicable to manufacturing process modeling, plus learning about the key modeling issues related to materials and computer simulations, and getting hands-on experience in modeling of manufacturing simulation with guidance from an instructor. Industry experts will be available to answer your specific questions.
