Paper Title:
About the Importance of Simulation Tools in the Learning Process of Metal Forming and Moulding
  Abstract

The European Higher Education Area has entailed some upheaval since it has involved deep changes in university education. Among the subjects taught in technical education such as Manufacturing Technologies, which involve strong experimental contents, the use of specific tools is helpful for better understanding of such subjects. This article highlights the need for the use of simulation tools in the field of manufacturing processes. The student may achieve optimal understanding and learning from them. They can understand, in a more visual way, complex phenomena that govern different processes and the influence of key variables. Applications related to sheet metal forming, forging and casting processes are presented. The main objective is to enable students to better understand the phenomena that govern the processes of moulding and forming, with the invaluable help of simulation software. The final aim is to ensure that the student reaches an optimum knowledge of moulding and forming processes using simulation software.
