What is the real cost of a bad design, poor quality and discovering problems late in the product development process? What would it mean to your bottom line if you could reduce the cost of product development, testing, and defects by 30 percent or more? Utilizing simulation, a virtual prototype can be created inside of a computer to test all aspects of the products performance before a single part is ever cut. Time is money, it is much cheaper to discover and fix problems when the product is still a concept inside of a computer and changes can be made in seconds by a few clicks of the mouse. The cost to fix these problems increases exponentially as you proceed through the development process. Think of it this way, would you rather pay $1 to fix your problem today, or $1,000 to fix that same problem six weeks from now? This can be accomplished by utilizing virtual prototyping to solve your toughest design challenges up front in the virtual world before they become an expensive and difficult problem to solve in the physical world. Virtual prototyping results in a higher quality product at a reduced cost in a shorter amount of time. This approach drastically cuts costs and improves product performance, problems can be designed out instead of manufactured in. Virtual prototyping is the creation of your product in every detail digitally inside of a computer. You can then test your product utilizing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize the product and make sure it meets your customers demanding expectations.
