Much as an athlete who uses a cross-training approach to develop strength and stamina and improve performance, ASME must embrace an interdisciplinary approach in order to grow and thrive in the coming years, ASME’s new president, J. Robert Sims, observed during his inaugural address at the ASME Annual Meeting in Portland, Ore., earlier this week.

bob sims president ASME“Cross-training advances an athlete’s workout regimen by varying the exercises to use muscles in different ways — it energizes the whole body and keeps the mind engaged,” said Sims, who became ASME’s 133rd president at the President’s Dinner on June 10. “You build flexibility, power and speed through an interdisciplinary approach. ASME members can benefit from an intellectual interdisciplinary approach, while pursuing of common goals.”

Because mechanical engineering is a wide-reaching and diverse discipline that plays a role in virtually every technology and industry, “successful engineers must have a strong professional network,” said Sims, a senior engineering fellow with Becht Engineering Co. Inc. “Because of this breadth and the multidisciplinary demands that we face, ASME is well positioned to be at the center of that network. As we grow, that will offer us greater opportunities. This year, we will focus on building our diverse interests into a unified whole.”
