There’s no doubt that engineering simulation has made an indelible impact on the work of product development teams. By enabling designers to study, predict and verify their products’ performance in a low-cost, low-risk virtual environment, simulation has accelerated the journey from conception to market launch, slashed development costs and increased product reliability. However, conventional simulation software does have its limitations — most notably, the lengthy training and consistent use required to build and maintain simulation expertise. In order to usher in a new era of simulation “democratization” — in which many team members can easily master simulation — a new generation of software is needed. Forward-looking software solutions will allow companies to apply simulation in a more flexible manner, improve the accuracy of the development process, enable multiple physics to be studied simultaneously, and increase collaboration and best-practice adoption. In addition, by allowing for easy software customization, next-generation simulation solutions will maximize results for every engineer, in every industry.
