By adopting simulation early on the project, we significantly reduced cost and time on the front-end as we got the right design answer in the shortest possible time. It is massively important because we can get people to make the right design decisions, thereby reducing development time by 50 to 80 percent.

Frequently asked questions

Engineering simulation software enables engineers to gain insights into product behavior early in the design process, identify potential issues and iterate on designs to improve performance, reliability and efficiency. It plays a crucial role in accelerating product development, reducing costs and driving innovation across various industries such as automotive, aerospace, energy, electronics and manufacturing.

Early in the design cycle, simulation can help eliminate infeasible designs. It also facilitates the exploration of more innovative design options that engineers would otherwise not consider. There are many benefits for design engineers who use simulation, including cost and time savings, easier innovation and improved product quality. A progressive approach involves simulation analysts setting up templates of validated simulations specific to particular design problems. These simulation templates can then be integrated as a part of guided simulation workflows for use by designers and design engineers. Proper simulation data management is also integral to democratizing simulation.

Data management capabilities that automatically link design models, simulation models and analysis results eliminate ambiguity regarding what results relate to which design, thus increasing confidence in decision-making. But tracking and linking artifacts and files isn’t enough.

Decision-makers must also be able to access and quickly extract actionable insight from this design exploration data. Result visualization tools, reports and data analytics help engineers select the best design that meets all requirements.
