A Revolution in Simulation!

The Rev-Sim.org website provides professional resources and a collaborative community to help increase the value of engineering simulation (CAE) investments through the Democratization of Simulation. By the process of “democratization” CAE experts can put the power of simulation safely and robustly into the hands of those who are not experts in using simulation software, including designers, new engineers and even those in technical sales and support.

The Rev-Sim portal provides access to the latest success stories, news, articles, whitepapers, blogs, presentations, videos, webinars, best practices and reference materials to help democratize simulation in your organization. Ask questions and participate in discussions with your peers and with the expert Topic Moderators on the site.

You’ll also have one-stop access to simulation specialists, industry organizations, special interest discussion groups, and industry media, along with software and consulting service providers to accelerate the return on your simulation investments through democratization.

Join the Revolution in Simulation here to explore, educate, innovate, and collaborate with others who are advancing the power, reach, and reliability of engineering simulation!

    View Summary

    “Comet has enabled us to automate very complex analysis tasks enabling significant (months to days) reduction in time-to-decision for product design teams. Equally important is the ability of the Template-based automation approach to be combined with simple web forms to create SimApps. SimApps allow non-specialists to safely execute analysis and make decisions without the involvement of an analysis expert.”

  • What Makes an Effective SimApp?

    Digital Engineering Sr. Editor, Kenneth Wong gives his take on Comet Solutions' SimApps.

    View Summary

    The new-found appetite for simulation apps suggests simulation experts in large manufacturing firms — for example, the FEA gurus with the know-how to recreate a wind tunnel test in ANSYS or a car crash in SIMULIA — may eventually take on a new role as app developers and authors. The skills and intuition required to craft an app for the non-experts is quite different from knowing the ins and outs of general-purpose simulation programs.

  • Modernizing Legacy Inhouse Codes with Simulation Apps

    View Summary

    The problem of legacy applications

    Over the past four decades, IT staff at Monsanto have developed many custom applications to help the firm’s managers, engineers, and plant operators to solve problems specific to the business. However, these applications were developed in the days of DOS; being command line driven, they were very difficult to use, especially for younger employees accustomed to more modern graphical user interfaces.

    Moving to a new environment

    Monsanto decided to utilize EASA’s patented approach. EASA enables rapid codeless creation and deployment of web-based applications that connect to one or more existing software tools.
