With over 40 years and more than 3,000 people focused on the design and simulation needs of engineers and other professionals, ANSYS provides an unparalleled array of tools for everything from concept and product design to in-depth validation. Our tools enable engineers, doctors, scientists, and others to understand and optimize the structural, thermal, fluid, and electronic performances of products. We’re passionate about democratizing and pushing the limits of world-class simulation technology so our customers can turn their design concepts into successful, innovative products faster and at lower cost.
“Simulation is the most powerful tool available to provide insight into the impact and trade-offs of design choices. However, traditional engineering simulation has a learning curve often measured in decades, and each analysis takes weeks on average. Only by making simulation as easy and as pervasive as Excel can engineers fulfill the promise of better, smarter, and more sustainable products of tomorrow. ANSYS is excited to participate in a new industry-wide initiative like the Revolution in Simulation that is working to do just that by democratizing the power of simulation to make it as reliable for use by every engineer as it is for CAE specialists.”
Since 1988 Kinetic Vision has been delivering progressive and imaginative product and process solutions for its international customer base. The company’s expertise is turning strategy into execution using the latest Digital Development Tools to support the Product Lifecycle. This includes enterprise-wide deployment of advanced technologies such as HPC modeling and simulation, industrial scanning and virtual reality, but also extends to many other cost-saving and speed-to-market solutions.
“Modeling and simulation is the only way manufacturers can innovate quickly enough to meet disruptive market forces. For example, Amazon has changed the transport landscape for many industries. Products that were once designed for palletized delivery to distribution centers and retailers are now being shipped directly to the consumer. That’s convenient for the consumer but a headache for the manufacturer as now their once-sufficient product packaging might not be suitable anymore. The only way to rapidly adjust to a change like this is through simulation. Those tools need to be readily accessible and usable for all – Revolution in Simulation is at the forefront of making that happen.”

NAFEMS provides knowledge, international collaboration, and educational opportunities for the use and validation of engineering simulation. NAFEMS is the only worldwide independent association dedicated to engineering simulation. Currently, there are more than 1300 member organizations worldwide ranging from major global corporations through small-scale engineering consultants.
“The full potential analysis and simulation is not often realized due to such factors as accessibility, usability, financial, and confidence. Our support of the Revolution in Simulation initiative highlights our commitment to continue to advance analysis and simulation technologies, best practices, and usability.”
NAFEMS Americas partnered with a number of industry thought leaders and end-user companies to host a year-long program of webinars focused on three major topic areas, one of which was Democratization. If you’re not a member, you can view introductory webinars listed here.
VCollab helps product development companies by providing CAE Visual Collaboration tools to Smart Extract Intelligent Simulation Information from CAE Results files for easier sharing and faster design validations, leading to accelerated innovation.
“VCollab believes in simulation as a vehicle for innovation. In order to bring the simulation to the forefront to validate designs in time, there is a need to revolutionize the way the simulation is being done today. The complexity associated with simulation need to handled so that more people in the product development companies use, share, consume and collaborate with the intelligent simulation information.”
Front End Analytics delivers dramatic increases in product development velocity, quality and innovation. We offer Value Centric Services and the Best in Class Software in the areas of: Engineering Simulation, Simulation Democratization, and Predictive Analytics. Our solutions cover the entire product lifecycle from conceptual product design to field usage.
“In the 1900s the size of the auto industry was a few million. To drive a car one needed to be an expert (i.e. essentially a mechanic). Today, the industry is over $2 trillion because anyone can now drive a car without needed to know the inner working. This same transformation is occurring in simulation, where democratization and digitization are revolutionizing the product lifecycle.”
EASA enables you to “appify” your simulation models and workflows to easily-deployed, web-based applications that capture design rules, constraint checks and error trapping, which can then be deployed to any controlled group of users. Users could be existing subject-matter-experts needing to streamline their current workflows, and/or users who are not experts in modeling.
“Globally dispersed and culturally diverse internal customers have not historically had access to some of our most valuable tools. The EASA platform has changed this; we can now rapidly build and deploy to the enterprise custom web-based applications that facilitate the use of our existing tools. The benefits are clear; the need for expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes are reduced, resulting in improved product quality, and reduced time to market.”
The ASSESS Initiative is a broad reaching multi-industry initiative with a primary goal to facilitate a revolution of enablement that will vastly increase the availability and utility of Engineering Simulation, leading to significantly increased usage and business benefits across the full spectrum of industries, applications and users. The vision of the ASSESS Initiative is to bring together key players for guiding and influencing the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering.
“The changing role of Engineering Simulation is really about business benefits. However, achieving those benefits and associated growth of the Engineering Simulation market is tempered due to the lack of expertise available. A Simulation Revolution needs to occur to achieve the potential growth in business benefits from the use of Engineering Simulation. “
Innovation, reliability, and time-to-market remain the biggest challenges to new product development. Comet’s low-code Simulation Automation Platform allows our customers to Democratize Simulation across global product teams. Comet’s SimApps empower everyone in the product development organization, not just CAE experts, to perform complex simulations efficiently, safely and accurately. This significantly advances product quality and innovation, while accelerating development cycles.
“For decades, simulation has been limited to the experts. The movement to Democratize Simulation has gained momentum and the use of SimApps (easy-to-use, web-deployed, targeted simulation apps for designers/engineers) leads the way. The Revolution In Simulation online community provides end-users with the resources they need to understand, implement and leverage the democratization of simulation within their organizations. Join the Revolution!“
ESRD, Inc. is the developer of StressCheck®, the world’s premier high definition, detailed analysis simulation tool, and are thought leaders in Simulation Governance, the deployment of Smart Engineering Simulation Apps and the Democratization of Simulation.
“ESRD is welcoming the opportunity to participate in and sponsor the Revolution in Simulation initiative. We strongly believe that the vision of expanding the use of simulation by non-experts can be safely realized through the practice of Simulation governance, which provides the safeguards to ensure that routine analysis in support of design decisions can be performed reliably by engineers without expert training.”
