Technical Qualification

Meeting specifications required by consumers, supply chain and retail

Technical Qualification enables designers to use finite element techniques for virtual product testing and to analytically represent a product or package. They can then simulate load and constraint conditions to predict the performance of a concept design in advance of any investment in tooling, prototyping, or physical test validation. Design studies can be conducted to determine the effect of varying geometric features, material thickness, material properties, or alternative load cases to optimize the product for design features, weight, performance, or material.

Key Highlights and Benefits:

  • Enables multiple design alternatives to be evaluated up-front in the design process.
  • Improves confidence in simulation results by capturing and reusing realistic simulation IP and leveraging company best practices.
  • Enhances collaboration between designers and engineers by using high performance results visualization to evaluate package performance and manufacturability.
  • Enables rapid turnaround time of large models using high-performance computing resources to permit more design alternatives to be considered

When the SIMULIA analysis shows that we need to make a design change, the CATIA model is adjusted to reflect that. We have reduced our design cycle times by 50%.
