Enterprise-wide Solutions: Product Design, Analysis and Management Through Engineering Teamwork
"A new class of enterprise-wide engineering analysis software allows design engineers to perform finite-element analysis (FEA) more routinely throughout product development, and also streamlines the process in which dedicated analysts handle advanced studies. In this way, analysis can be seamlessly integrated into a continuous design process, rather than interjected as a point solution for isolated problems. Using these tools, an engineer developing parts on a computer-aided design (CAD) system can easily check the design at any time to gain insight into product behavior and perform ""what-if?"" simulations to explore options and arrive at a superior design early. Moreover, Web-enabled reporting functions allow engineers to quickly transfer project information throughout the organization. And links to dedicated analysts facilitate more efficient detailed analysis when needed."
