This short course introduces key simulation VVUQ* concepts and methodologies aimed at building simulation credibility, and in line with current standards. • Simulation process and role in decision-making • Simulation management • Verification: definition, code verification, solution verification • Validation: definition, hierarchical validation, validation metrics • Predictive Capability • Uncertainty Quantification • Standards and guides from ASME, NASA, NAFEMS... Finally, benefits for industrial organizations, implementation issues, and recommended practises are highlighted. (*) Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification ---- Short biography of Jean-François Imbert During more than 40 years Jean-François Imbert dedicated his career to the aerospace sector where he held expert and management key positions with main technical expertise in Structure Mechanics & Engineering Simulation (Finite Element Analysis). His last position in the aeronautical industry (Airbus) was Vice-President Engineering, Head of Structure Analysis. Retired from Airbus, he is now an independent consultant specialized in VVUQ for Modelling and Simulation (M&S). He is actively promoting M&S Credibility Assurance in consulting projects mainly in aerospace and defence. He is member of the ASME VVUQ 10 Committee for Solid Mechanics and the NAFEMS SGMWG (Simulation Governance and Management Working Group) where he is actively involved in the development of VVUQ standards. He has been teaching NAFEMS Simulation V&V Courses during the last 7 years with his colleague Philippe Pasquet. https://www.nafems.org/VV21-3 He is presently NAFEMS Technical Fellow and Emeritus member of AAAF (Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France).
