Benefits of Virtual Simulation Over Hand Calculations [White Paper]

The push to more innovative and complex products helps to differentiate products from competitors: it also results in designers being forced to make trade-off decisions between speed, cost, and quality.
The push to more innovative and complex products helps to differentiate products from competitors; it also results in designers being forced to make trade-off decisions between speed, cost, and quality.

Is increasing product complexity making it difficult to accurately predict the behavior of your products? Rather than use a “guess and check” approach, best-in-class companies are turning to simulation software to arm their designers with the insight needed to develop and optimize today’s products.

According to Aberdeen Group’s research report entitled, “The Value of Virtual Simulation Versus Traditional Methods,” best-in-class companies are 53% more likely than their peers to conduct their simulations in a virtual environment.

Those best-in-class companies using virtual simulation are:

42% more likely to meet product launch targets

43% more likely to meeting product cost targets

22% more likely to meet product quality targets

37% more likely to meet product revenue targets

2X faster for the length of the development cycle for new products

All through virtual testing using simulation.

Challenges for Product Development

  • Products operating in varying and complex environments
  • Limited development resources
  • Competitive differentiation is becoming more difficult
  • Lack of tolerance in design flaws

Engineers play a critical role in the success of any company that designs and delivers products. Being understaffed or lacking talent in this area can be detrimental to success.
