ANSYS Advantage — Best of Aerospace and Defense
Best of Aerospace and Defense 2016
Aerospace and defense companies share many commonalities in the type of products they produce, the harsh environments these products operate in, and their overriding focus on safety and reliability. However, the commercial aircraft, space and defense sectors each face unique market trends. In this aerospace and defense-focused magazine, we explore how these trends drive technology innovation and the way leading companies leverage simulation-driven product development to deliver tangible business impact.
