Abstract

In this information age computer modelling and simulation is proving an indispensable tool for system design, operation, analysis, decision-making, optimisation, education and training. World leading operations are increasingly relying on modelling and simulation to develop more efficient systems and to produce higher quality products and services. Modelling and simulation allows scientists and engineers a better understanding of three-dimensional and time-dependent phenomena, as well as providing a platform for predicting future behaviour. This paper covers aspects of a keynote speech delivered by Saeid Nahavandi which focus on the challenges associated with the modelling and simulation of engineered systems and discusses how knowledge visualisation can provide effective communication to various levels of organisational management. Through examining the concepts of knowledge visualization, performance and spatial cognition and its relationship with user performance, perceptions and feedback on a series of assembly operations, tangible benefits of knowledge creation and representation of a 3 dimensional engineered system for training of complex motor and technical skills are shown.
