This post reviews ANSYS’ simulation platform for electronics and electrical systems, including Electronic Desktop, HFSS, SIwave, and Maxwell.
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 …
Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA Apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform
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 …
Exa’s Power Suite: Focusing on the CFD Specialist
In this post, you’ll find an overview of Exa’s Power suite of software products as well as my commentary and analysis.
What does 3DEXPERIENCE mean for SIMULIA?
Dassault Systemes’ plans for their 3DEXPERIENCE platform has implications for SIMULIA products. This post takes a hard look at what it all means.
VCollab: Democratizing Simulation Visualization?
Conducting engineering simulations in today’s business environment can be challenging. Executives often give a begrudging approval to simulation teams to do their work. But its infrequent that those simulation teams are able to expose their work to the broader enterprise. There has been trends more recently, however, to expose simulation results in new and exciting …
The Misnomer of Simulation Lifecycle Management
It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago when we started hearing about Simulation Lifecycle Management (SLM). But blink your eyes and its five years later. When software providers first started talking about this type of solution, I remember there was quite a bit of confusion. What exactly does it do? Is it like …
The Pitfalls of Multi-Disciplinary Simulations: Divergent Model Abstractions
For the past few years, most of the simulation and analysis industry has been abuzz concerning multi-disciplinary (MD) simulations, and rightly so. MD analysis offers a far more realistic view of product performance than one-off simulations. But despite the increasing availability of MD simulation capabilities, it’s not all roses. In fact, there are some serious …
Breaking Down Autodesk’s Vision for Simulation
Five years ago, if you asked which software providers had the strongest set of design and simulation capabilities, it’s safe to say that Autodesk wouldn’t be the first one out of your mouth. Many would admit they’ve developed and provided a number of design and engineering accelerator type technologies, but analysis and simulation? But lo and behold, fast forward to today and the story has changed a bit. Autodesk still might not be the first software provider mentioned, but they’re not far down the list.
