CIMdata Initiates Digital Collaboration Market Research

Focus on Simulation-Driven Design Best Practices

CIMdata, Inc. announces a new market research effort and invites the participation of industry in a web-based survey.  There is much discussion these days about digital transformation, model-based engineering, and simulation­-driven design. The business driver for these initiatives is for engineers and managers across the multiple disciplines involved in product development to use interactive 3D digital models instead of static 2D drawings, spreadsheets and text­-based documents to collaborate and make better and faster design decisions based on physics­ based CAE/simulation and related physical test information.

As such, CIMdata is conducting a market research survey on the current state of digital collaboration between the engineering simulation and analysis community and other product development disciplines.  The objectives of this CIMdata market survey are 1) to understand to what extent companies are using 3D digital CAE models and related information to enable collaborative decision making with the other product development disciplines and 2) identify industry best practices and potential areas for improvement.

Those completing the survey and providing contact information will be entered into a drawing to receive a $10 gift card and will also receive access to a CIMdata Commentary highlighting the results of the market survey and the most significant findings/conclusions from CIMdata’s perspective. This CIMdata Commentary is scheduled to be released in early September 2021.

The ASSESS Initiative is partnering with CIMdata in conducting this important market research activity and we encourage you to complete the web survey at:
