Real-Life Business Benefits
Over the last 10 years, the industrial landscape has completely changed: Reliable technologies have fallen short on market demand; consumer expectations have increased in both size and complexity; FORTUNE 500 leaders have wavered due to product integrity issues in flagship products; and strong competition is coming from emerging countries.
The news media regularly reports on amazing technological challenges that pioneering companies around the world address in the aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, energy and life science areas, among others. In parallel, product developers in all corners of the globe increasingly adopt engineering simulation. Initially developed for rocket science research a few decades ago but progressively migrating toward industrial design, this digital prototyping approach has penetrated all major industries and is spreading step by step into the manufacturing world.
It is no surprise to see leading companies’ industrial initiatives and engineering simulation converge, joining forces to build an innovative future. The results of this successful collaboration are already visible. Though engineering simulation is not a “household word,” it is used extensively for a huge number of common problems and well-known applications. Not using this technology is considered a competitive disadvantage.
