Simulation use across the design cycle


Product performance

Simulation is for more than validating your designs at the end of a project. It can be used throughout the product development cycle to improve performance and reliability at every step along the way by engineers.

See how simulation is used during concept design to understand feasibility and identify the best approach. During detailed design, simulation is used to guide decisions based on performance and requirements without being over-engineered. Once the product has been designed, simulation is used for verification and validation to ensure the design meets all requirements before investments are made.
