Proceedings now available here

This workshop series is organized by the Georgia Tech Product & Systems Lifecycle Management Center (GIT PSLM Center) in cooperation with Collaborative Product Development Associates (CPDA)

Thursday, March 16, 2006 (social event March 15 evening)
Georgia Tech Campus, Atlanta

Held in conjunction with the CPDA workshop "Developing a Design/Simulation Framework" (March 15 - separate registration required)



  • Overview and discuss the research being performed at leading research and academic organizations in the field of Design and Simulation
  • Provide an opportunity to industry practitioners to voice their pain points, priorities and expectations to help shape the direction of future research
  • Establish new relationships between industry and academia that could lead to collaborative research efforts in the area


  • Design and Simulation Frameworks
  • Simulation-Based Design
  • Model-Based Design
  • Multi-Disciplinary Design and Engineering Analysis
  • Product and Systems Lifecycle Management
  • Engineering Knowledge Modeling
  • Multi-Disciplinary Optimization
  • SysML and other Systems Engineering Modeling Languages


Five 45-minute presentations (30 minute presentations + 15 minutes for Q&A and setup) followed by a panel at the end of the day led by the presenters and potentially other experts.
