2019 Prenscia User Group Meeting

15-16 October | Paris (France)

Transforming data into decisions at the Prenscia UGM (Paris)

HBM Prenscia is proud to announce that the 2019 Prenscia User Group Meeting (UGM) will take place on 15-16th October at the Best Western Paris CDG. 

This highly anticipated two-day event will feature the successful application of nCode and ReliaSoft products through two dedicated tracks — complete with hands-on workshops, customer presentations, and product updates from Prenscia technical staff. 

Submit an abstract today!

Customers are now invited to become a part of the program by submitting an abstract describing an engineering challenge overcome using nCode and ReliaSoft products! Abstracts describing presentations no longer than 20 minutes in length are due before 19th July 2019. Final presentations due 17th September 2019.
The nCode track will showcase advanced technology for understanding product durability, analyzing measured data, and performing CAE-based fatigue analysis.

We are currently seeking customers to present on their experience using:

  • nCode GlyphWorks for processing measured data and performing durability analysis
  • nCode DesignLife for CAE-based fatigue analysis
  • nCode VibeSys for performing acoustics and vibration analysis
  • Aqira for creating, sharing, and running engineering apps and analysis processes
  • nCodeDS for streamed data analytics

Sample UGM presentations can be found on our Resource Center.
The ReliaSoft track focuses on exploring programs for reliability, asset management, quality, safety, and maintainability. 

We are currently seeking customers to present on their experience using:

  • Weibull++ for reliability test design and predicting performance during warranty period
  • BlockSim for system reliability, availability, and optimization for both repairable and non -repairable systems
  • ALTA for designing the accelerated tests
  • XFMEA for all types of FMEA and risk analysis
  • ReliaSoft applications used for reliability engineering modeling and analysis

An immersive, two-in-one experience: a co-located event for users of nCode and ReliaSoft software


Interactive experiences

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops, collaborative group discussions, and explore new software features in our 'think tank' room.

Technology updates

HBM Prenscia will showcase the latest updates to both nCode and ReliaSoft products. New solutions for efficiently processing huge volumes of sensor data, test design, maintenance optimization, and life data and warranty analysis will be presented.


Seize the opportunity to network and learn from other nCode and ReliaSoft users. Share experiences, while expanding your personal network.

User-led presentations

The highlight of the user group meeting. The opportunity to listen to presentations by users representing innovative companies, best practices, and a broad range of applications.

Preliminary agenda: Workshops and presentations

We are pleased to offer a number of hands-on, interactive experiences through collaborative workshops at the UGM! Attendees will work together in small groups to overcome a provided challenge and will leave with real-world solutions to common engineering problems.
