ANSYS’ Discovery Live: Promising Instant Analysis
Discovery Live is a new software application from ANSYS promising real-time simulation. This post reviews its capabilities and their ability to produce. If there is one commonality in most software product announcements today, it’s hyperbole. Trend X will completely change the industry! Manufacturers that don’t adapt will be out of business in five years! It is the kind of thing …
Over time, Dassault Systèmes has been building SIMULIA apps on their 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This post looks at their capabilities and advantages. Last week, I shared some research and commentary on the current state of Simulation Driven Design as well as the potential solution going forward: Simulation Platforms. In a continuation of that post, I’m starting a series to look at …
Simulation Driven Design has long promised great benefits. This post reviews some failures from the past and emerging solutions with hope for the future. How long have we been contemplating the promise of simulation driven design? For those of you that may be new to the concept, simulation driven design is the idea of running analyses during design to make …
