The 2012 Automotive Simulation World Congress (ASWC) has driven off into the ever-so-vibrant sunset of Detroit, Michigan, leaving attendees more educated about current industry trends. Almost 300 automotive executives, managers and engineers from over 100 companies participated in this congress dedicated to applications for road, rail and off-highway vehicles.
The two-day event, held at the towering Detroit Renaissance Center, kicked off the general session with a keynote talk from Wayne Eckerle, vice president of research and technology at Cummins. Eckerle discussed Cummins’ Analysis Led Design initiative and how it is changing the company’s corporate culture by utilizing simulation for its product development.
One attendee noted that Eckerle “provided a lot of insight on the benefits of simulation from a business perspective that is valuable for my company’s current needs and goals.”
