Simulation-based Design

Improve Product Design and Foster Collaboration with Specialists

Part designers and product engineers can improve their product performance and quality while reducing uncertainty and cost by using simulation to help guide design decisions.  The Simulation-based Design portfolio provides powerful, yet easy-to-use design-centric simulation tools (including guided workflows and active assistants) to help designers and engineers achieve their design goals through simulation.  The portfolio includes the power of Abaqus technology to solve important problems facing designers today – Will it work? How long will it last?  How can I reduce weight?  How can I make it better? – all within their familiar design and engineering environment.
