Extra - TMS ICME Implementation Study Preview
Opening Session Presentation
2nd World Congress on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering
July 7, 2013
The opening session of the 2nd World Congress on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME), held July 7–July 11, 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah, set the stage for a week of knowledge sharing and dialogue supporting advancement and widespread adoption of ICME. The following presentation marked the public debut of
Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME): Implementing ICME in the Aerospace, Automotive, and Maritime Industries
, a groundbreaking study organized by TMS that provides practical guidance for implementing an ICME-Accelerated Product Development Program within three years.
