Dr. Hubertus Tummescheit to Present at CIMdata’s Simulation-Driven Systems Development Workshop

Presentation will share an industry use-case in the application of Modelica and Functional Mockup Interface/Functional Mockup Unit.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 24 March 2016—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces that Dr. Hubertus Tummescheit will make a presentation at CIMdata’s Simulation-Driven Systems Development Knowledge Council workshop which will take place at Michigan State University’s Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan on April 27. The event is being held in conjunction with NAFEMS’ Engineering Analysis & Simulation in the Automotive Industry: Emerging Standards & Practices event which will take place at the same location on April 28.

The Modelica language and standard libraries provide the end user with high quality model content authoring tools (the CAE equivalent of HTML 5). Functional Mockup Interface/Functional Mockup Unit (FMI/FMU) allows engineers to share and deploy systems model content across multiple engineering domains within the extended enterprise–making sharing an executable model with a co-worker as easy as sending a link to a YouTube video.

In his presentation, “Applying FMI/FMU & Modelica for Co-simulation of Complex Dynamic Systems,” Dr. Tummescheit will share an industry use-case in the application of Modelica and FMI/FMU to show how this complementary combination of tools, based on open standards, enables the more widespread and effective use of dynamic models to enable analytic model-based systems engineering.

Dr. Tummescheit is the Chief Executive Officer of Modelon Inc., and one of the founders of Modelon AB. Dr. Tummescheit received his MSc in mechanical engineering from the Technical University of Hamburg, Germany, and his PhD in automatic control from the University of Lund, Sweden. He has been involved in the design of the Modelica language from the beginning and is the developer of a number of open source and commercial Modelica libraries.

CIMdata’s Simulation-Driven Systems Development workshop is a must-attend event for industrial organizations and PLM software and service providers involved in systems modeling and simulation. It offers independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry take root.

The theme for the workshop is Driving Industry to Model-Based Systems Engineering. Presentations and interactive sessions will address the following critical areas: industry standards, MBSE requirements, co-simulation, and the integration of SysML models with modeling and simulation tools. Attendees should expect to gain a solid understanding of current best practices and of the work that CIMdata’s Simulation-Driven Systems Development Knowledge Council is undertaking.

Mr. Donald Tolle, CIMdata’s Director, Simulation-Driven Systems Development Practice will serve as the facilitator for this workshop. He will be joined by CIMdata’s Executive Consultant for Simulation, Dr. Keith Meintjes. For more information on attending the CIMdata workshop or the NAFEMS’ event visit the CIMdata website at:
