Simulation Driven Design (SDD)

Using Simulation-Driven Design to Power Digital Engineering

Customer demands and marketplace competition are placing engineers under mounting time pressures. An organization’s development schedules must shorten to keep pace with the industry and the wider market. Many established digital tools are now available to accelerate development lifecycles. Simulation is one of them.

What is Esteco modeFRONTIER and VOLTA?

Let’s talk about Esteco and their products. There are two main products, modeFRONTIER and VOLTA. They serve different purposes, but basically they’re both all about simulation automation and simulation data management.

What’s New in Ansys Discovery?

Ansys came out with a new version of their offering called Discovery, which is meant to support an engineer’s exploration of new designs while looking at performance. A lot of products had incremental capabilities and enhancements added to them over time. Is this really any different? To answer that question, it really makes sense to step back for a second and look at how do engineers explore those designs.

What Are ModelCenter’s Capabilities?

Can you integrate simulation automation and systems engineering? Let’s talk about that next with Phoenix Integration’s ModelCenter. All right. So let’s talk about the integration between systems engineering and simulation automation. Now, this review actually ties into a series that we’re running right now that looks at how do you realize value from simulation-driven design? …

Simulation-Driven Design: Feasible or Fallacy?

Today’s engineers are in a tight spot. From smartphones to conveyor belts and coffee pots, today’s products are increasingly complex. They often meld mechanical and electrical functions with software code. To meet performance requirements, engineers must take many more factors into account during design than ever before. And, of course, do it fast while keeping costs low.

How Do You Realize Value from Simulation-Driven Design?

Four strategies that your company can take to realize the value out of simulation-driven design. In this post, we cover the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy.

Top 4 Factors to Unlock Simulation-Driven Design

Simulation-driven design provides a broad range of benefits that help organizations realize business goals and expedite innovation. However, while some teams using this method thrive, others are unable to fully capitalize on it. So, here are four factors that affect simulation-driven design.

How to Improve Designs by Compressing Simulation Analysis

Several developments have occurred during the last few years that have overhauled the traditional simulation analysis approach — changing it for the better. These advancements have replaced the discrete steps of traditional analysis with a near-real-time process in which the boundaries between steps are blurred.
