ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Jul 24, 2020 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that it has set dates for the first series of Systems Modeling & Simulation Certificate Programs.
The goal of the classes is to provide a superior educational experience for today’s simulation and analysis professionals. Each class will be delivered through a series of education and training sessions designed to equip those involved in systems modeling and/or simulation with a strong understanding of systems modeling and simulation concepts and industry-leading best practices.
The following SMS Certificate Programs will be offered in the fall of 2020:
- SMS Basic Certificate for Executives (September 22) – a half-day virtual-live class for executives seeking an understanding of engineering analysis and virtual modeling.
- SMS Basic Certificate for Managers (September 23 & 24) – a virtual-live class delivered over two half days for those using simulation at various lifecycle stages and/or supporting simulations in various functions.
- SMS Basic Certificate for Practitioners (October 6-7) – a virtual-live class delivered over three half days for general users, application engineers, systems engineers, simulation engineers, development engineers, subject matter experts, and IT analysts.
The Systems Modeling & Simulation Certificate Program leverages a common systems engineering and product data model that encompasses simulation, analysis, benefits, requirements, platform, program, project, systems definition, product structure, lifecycle, and configuration management capabilities.
According to CIMdata’s President & CEO, Peter Bilello, “It has long been CIMdata’s desire to expand our education and training offerings to the simulation and analysis community. Setting the dates for these virtual-live SMS Basic Certificate classes brings this desire to fruition.” He went on to add, “The CIMdata Systems Modeling & Simulation Certificate Program, offered in partnership with SMS_ThinkTank, leverages CIMdata’s assessment-based educational framework and satisfies the systems modeling and simulation education requirements of small to large enterprises.”
Frank Popielas, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of SMS_ThinkTank commented, “Drawing on CIMdata’s experience and the experience of SMS_ThinkTank we are excited to launch this offering in the fall. The SMS Basic Certificate Programs will be of interest to all levels of the systems modeling and simulation community—from industrial companies who are considering, evaluating, implementing, and/or enhancing their systems modeling and simulation capabilities as part of a digital transformation effort, to software and service providers in the systems modeling and simulation domain.”
