Like R&D organizations everywhere, you may be struggling with two seemingly opposing initiatives:
- Cost savings to mitigate the impact of the economy on sales
- Innovation that can propel your company beyond a crisis, and quickly
You can't sacrifice one aspect for the other. If you think innovation leads to spiraling-out-of-control R&D costs and lower profits, Aberdeen Group says otherwise. The overarching use of innovation involves breaking with the past and redesigning legacy product development processes. The bottom-line result can be decreased costs, shortened time to market and reduced financial risks associated with designing high-demand products.
Control Costs by Leveraging CAE
Companies that emerge from tough times the fastest can win the product race. They apply engineering simulation to systematically design new products in the virtual world.
- Reduces physical build-and-test experiments, shortening time to market and impacting the bottom line
- Opens the door to more dramatic enhancements and truly innovative solutions
Companies led by visionaries will take advantage of lean times to sprint ahead of the competition. Join tomorrow’s market leaders and make your next product development effort a success — with ANSYS as your engineering simulation partner.
A recent report titled The Impact of Strategic Simulation on Product Profitability from the Aberdeen Group sheds light on best practices applied by successful companies targeting time, cost and quality. Best-in-class companies utilize engineering simulation to systematically design new products in the virtual world. Such companies spring back from tough times faster than competitors by optimizing their development process and implementing a get-it-right-the-first-time strategy by predicting and analyzing product behavior earlier in the design process. They also evaluate more design iterations in the concept/design stage.
