A top-tier oilfield service company with a century-long track record, Baker Hughes delivers solutions that help oil and gas operators make the most of their reservoirs.

The Challenge

Designing the optimum downhole tools for oil and gas wells is costly and time-consuming. Since each wellbore environment is different, designs that work in some situations may not be ideal for others.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Abaqus FEA, in combination with Isight automation and optimization software, lets engineers run thousands of iterations quickly to prove-out the best designs virtually ahead of expensive prototyping.


The design paths—not previously explored—can be easily and quickly considered. Development times have been reduced from an average of two months to two days.
