What is Simulation-Led Design?

Up to 80%of the cost of a product’s development is determined by the decisions you make early in the design process. Simulation led design is the digital exploration of design concepts and the testing of critical design choices early in the product lifecycle using simulation.

Upfront simulation gives the engineer the insights needed to make informed decisions, reduce costly physical prototypes, and avoid unworkable designs down the road. By leveraging simulation early in the design stage of product development, engineers can evaluate feedback on design changes immediately.

As a result they are able to make more informed decisions as they refine designs. Better decisions lead to fewer problems during test and production, which result in fewer late stage engineering changes. These changes take twice as long to implement and cause delays and increase cost. By integrating simulation into the Design process, engineers don’t have to wait to improve their confidence in their decisions. They are able to evaluate more options to balance requirements for quality, reliability, and cost. This leads to a more optimized, innovative product. With better designs, in less time, a company has the competitive advantage it needs.
