Seminar and Roundtable on Improving Productivity and Profitability Using Simulation Technology in the Moulding Industry

Date: 26 Feb 2013 - 26 Feb 2013

Venue: SIMTech Auditorium, Tower Block, Level 3

This half-day seminar offers participants the opportunity to understand what drives companies to reach higher productivity and profitability by way of engineering simulation.  Engineering simulation in developed countries is no longer an option but has become a pre-requisite tool for companies to gain an unrivaled advantage in today's competitive market for developing and launching new products rapidly.

There will also be a roundtable session to identify technology gaps, concerns and issues from participants and industry leaders sharing their experience and success in exploiting engineering simulation.    

This event is co-organised by CAD-IT, Bayer Material Science and SIMTech.
