At various automotive companies, Comet’s SimApps such as the Gearbox SimApp empower product development teams while providing feedback to the engineering team for refinement of future designs. Engineers with limited CAE expertise can now safely and robustly run complex simulations!
Ply-by-ply modeling and automatic lamination using 3D-solid elements enable the creation and deployment of this App in a Desktop CAE-Handbook.
Front End Analytics has helped ZF | TRW shorten new product development cycles, by democratizing the design process related to its Pitman Arm steering system component.
Enhancing simulation graphical output to marketing-level quality can greatly increase audience engagement and understanding, while simultaneously creating opportunities to leverage your investment in M&S software tools.

Democratizing Simulation: Can Non-Experts Safely Utilize Advanced Modeling Tools and Workflows?
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!

Comet Solutions has enabled Intel to automate very complex analysis tasks enabling significant (months to days) reduction in time-to-decision for product design teams.Solution Providers:
“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.”

Air International reduces design lifecycles while putting simulation technology into more hands by creating custom, task-specific applications simplifying the use of many of its powerful computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools.Solution Providers:
At Air International, computer simulation has long been viewed as a key competitive advantage, permitting early evaluation of many different design alternatives before building a prototype. With EASA, Air International has leveraged these benefits by creating custom, task-specific applications simplifying the use of many CAE workflows, including tools such as Fluent, NX/NASTRAN, and CATIA. Furthermore, expert knowledge was embedded into the streamlined user interface, making modeling and simulation available to engineers and designers with little or no CAE experience while also significantly accelerating the process for experienced users.
In addition to significant ease of use improvements, Air International benefited from many other EASA advantages, including:

CAASE18 (the Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering) will showcase 22 presentations, workshops and discussions all focused on democratization.
Dating back to the 2015 NAFEMS World Congress, interest in democratization has grown from a single session to a full conference track at NAFEMS events.
CAASE18 (the Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering) an event hosted by NAFEMS and Digital Engineering Magazine, will take place June 5-7 in Cleveland. What makes CAASE18 so noteworthy is that it highlights the first time that democratization has earned a leading role as a key topic running the duration of the three day conference.
We have pulled together a list of democratization-themed abstracts covering presentations, workshops and discussions taking place at CAASE18. Click on the link below for details.View Story
Ravi Desi (American-Axle Manufacturing) and Tory Scola (NASA Langley) discuss the importance of knowledge capture & reuse and why companies need to embrace targeted, solution-focused simulation apps to gain measurable improvements in innovation, development time, and related product quality.Solution Providers:
As part of a one-hour NAFEMS webinar on, “Democratization: Expert Knowledge Capture & Reuse,” Ravi Desi explains why knowledge capture and reuse is critical in developing new vehicle architectures and for faster decision making at American-Axle Manufacturing. Tory Scola shares how NASA Langley adopted a new process for automated design space exploration (with complex multiphysics calculations, including design changes) resulting in a single iteration taking a full week down to 140 analyses in a single overnight run.

ASME paper on simulation templates for designers.View Summary
This ASME paper, “Using Templates To Support The Engineering Designer Performing Computer-Based Design Analysis”, authored by Hakan Petersson, discussed how simulation templates can be used by engineering (CAD) designers to perform complex simulations.
Here is an extract from the Abstract:
The introduction of TBDA in an industrial setting has resulted in many advantages, such as shorter lead times, opportunities to generate more concept candidates, and increased collaboration between the engineering designers and the design analysts, all of them contributing to more mature technical solutions. Three different automation levels of TBDA have also been identified and accounted for as well as being exemplified. In the companies in which TBDA has not been implemented, some of the reasons for not doing so are high costs, company policy, and the lack of knowledge and experience on the part of the engineering designer. This paper presents the results both from the new online survey as well as from the interviews. © 2015 by ASME

A Structural-Thermal-Optical-Performance (STOP) analysis is an interdisciplinary analysis used to verify optical requirements. It is performed to identify and solve design issues early before building hardware.View Summary
A Structural-Thermal-Optical-Performance (STOP) analysis is an interdisciplinary analysis used to verify optical requirements. It is performed to identify and solve design issues early before building hardware. In a traditional STOP analysis, data must flow sequentially from engineer to engineer, requiring multiple data handoffs, which are time-consuming. If the STOP analysis shows that design changes are necessary, trade studies can also be time-consuming.
