About the 2013 iNEMI Roadmap

The 2013 Roadmap was developed by 20 Technology Working Groups (TWGs) in response to inputs regarding technology needs from representatives of OEMs in six Product Emulator Groups (PEGs). These groups included more than 650 individuals from over 350 corporations, consortia, government agencies and universities, located in 18 countries.

2013 Research Priorities

2013 Product Emulator Groups (PEGs)

1.    Aerospace/Defense
2.    Automotive
3.    Consumer/Portable
4.    High-End Systems
5.    Medical
6.    Office Systems

The PEGs define OEM requirements for their respective product sectors, anticipating product technology and business-related needs over a 10-year horizon. These needs are presented in each PEG chapter, using key attribute spreadsheets and text according to templates that are furnished by the iNEMI Technical Committee (TC).  Each PEG has a Chair or Co-chairs and as many group members as needed for a broad-based view of that emulator’s scope (usually 2-5 individuals).  

The TWGs use the OEM requirements detailed in the six PEG chapters (as applicable) to prepare each of their roadmap chapters, detailing where their respective technology stands today — and is expected to progress over the next 10 years — with respect to the stated needs.
