nCode DesignLife: Predicting Fatigue Life

Across the automotive, aerospace, and heavy machinery industries, complex products often need to be lightweight while also meeting stringent lifecycle durability requirements. But it can be a challenge to determine whether products meet such requirements during the design phase. Conducting fatigue analysis using nCode DesignLife can help organizations virtually predict how long products will last …

Aras Innovator: The Advantages of Accessing Simulation Data in Your Product Lifecycle Management Solution

As part of technology-led initiatives, many engineering organizations have adopted both simulation and product lifecycle management (PLM) to help drive and optimize product development efforts. Today, these companies often must rely on a variety of simulation products to meet their needs. Yet, engineering change orders (ECOs), which can come from any step in the product …

Solution Provider Landscape for Simulation-Driven Design

When the simulation-driven design movement first started, there was only one way to enable it: putting hybrid CAD-CAE solutions in the hands of engineers. But in the past decade or so, the approaches have grown. In this post, we discuss each approach and solution providers that address them.

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.
