Engineers rely on computer modelling and simulation methods and tools as vital components of the product development process. As these methods develop at an ever-increasing pace, the need for an independent, international authority on the use of this technology has never been more apparent. NAFEMS is the only worldwide independent association dedicated to this technology.

Companies from numerous industries and every part of the globe have invested heavily in engineering technologies such as FEA and CFD.

But -

How do they ensure they get the best return from their investment?

How do they develop and enhance their capabilities?

How do they know they are using the technology in the most effective way?

NAFEMS is uniquely placed to help answer these questions.

NAFEMS is a vendor neutral, not-for-profit membership association of more than 950 companies from all over the world. Members range from major corporations such as Boeing through mid-sized organizations such as JCB, to small-scale engineering consultants.

As the only independent international organisation dedicated to the engineering analysis community, NAFEMS is always involved in a number of external projects with other organisations in the European Community and beyond.

Indeed, NAFEMS co-ordinates and manages international collaboration initiatives throughout the world of simulation, most recently coordinating the EU funded FENet and Autosim projects.

NAFEMS members benefit significantly from our involvement in this type of project, by having the opportunity to get involved at all stages. As well as being in a position to influence project direction, provide feedback which is truely taken onboard, and benefit from the outcomes and findings of major cross-industry initiatives, NAFEMS members can not only follow and adopt state-of-the-art – they can shape the future of the technology
