NAFEMS and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) announced a joint relationship for mutual participation and collaboration for the advancement of engineering simulation and model based systems engineering. This collaboration includes the implementation of a joint cross organizational working group on Systems Modeling and Simulation.
NAFEMS will launch a new international Technical Working Group (TWG) in concert with INCOSE to promote a deeper understanding of lifelike behavior to integrate mechanical analysis and simulation within their Model Based System Engineering initiative. Additionally, through this collaboration NAFEMS and INCOSE will provide mutual assistance and support for international standards and develop a joint approach for interfacing with other organizations in related professional areas.
