Simulation is more than Software

Are you aware of just how much potential simulation harbors?

Using simulation for more efficient development work and a faster development process – for greater product innovation and improved product quality. Discover what simulation can do for your company too.

That’s why simulation pays off

Simulation isn’t an end in itself. Simulation’s full potential for a company is revealed when viewed from three perspectives. First, from the point of view of the designer or development engineer using the software in their everyday work. This gives rise to significant benefits for the development process as a whole. Entrepreneurs and product managers, meanwhile, see the added value that simulation has to offer above all else in the company’s higher product quality, quicker product availability and increasing innovative strength.

Cut development costs


Shorten development times

Overcome complexity


Promote innovation


Avoid product risks


Increase product quality


If a product development process has to be faster, more affordable and more innovative, then simulation is the method of choice. And if you want to test the limits of what’s technically feasible, simulation is absolutely indispensable.

What is a digital prototype?

Understanding, further developing and optimizing a product before it’s even been built – all of this is possible with the digital prototype.

Nowadays, technical products are designed and built in a CAD system – so the geometric data is available in digital form. Simulation gives this data physical and technical properties, while defining load scenarios at the same time. The pure geometry is thus turned into a virtual – i.e. digital – prototype.

The digital prototype is the logical next step in the digitalization of development work and offers new opportunities for the further development of existing development processes.
