The global manufacturing industry is placing unprecedented pressure on all of its players across the board – Tier 1 automotive companies to electronics manufacturers, and all others in between. The required time to deliver products to the market is shrinking and with little warning.
This high-pressure environment requires high productivity. It forces companies to choose between doing things faster and leaner without compromising on quality or ceding their advantage to a more innovative competitor who’s willing to do whatever it takes to meet a faster delivery schedule.
Most companies prefer the first option: to meet their project milestones and get their testing done sooner, without putting in extra hours at the office or sacrificing competitive advantage. The real question then is, how do you make this goal a reality?
CFD is the answer to this question. The benefits of simulating early as a part of the design process have been documented extensively. The time and resource costs of engineering changes increase with each step from concept to production. Frontloading computational fluid dynamics (CFD), moving simulation early into the design process, is proven to help your engineers examine trends early and eliminate undesirable design options before the change becomes expensive. Top-performing companies make it a priority to assess the performance of designs early during the design process, and they promote collaboration and knowledge-sharing between analysis experts and design engineers.
Our latest white paper, Top 7 Tips to Increase Engineering Productivity by Frontloading CFD, provides you with important guidance for assessing the performance of your designs early in the design process, as well as for promoting collaboration and knowledge-sharing between your company’s analysis experts and design engineers to realize higher quality end products and greater design-to-engineering efficiency.
