ANSYS Advantage - Volume IX, Issue 3, 2015
Many factors contribute to a product’s success — engineering innovation, product quality and the business model employed are all important. But in nearly every industry, time to market is among the most critical factors. Released at the right time, your product grabs market share and dominates the field. Miss the window of opportunity, whether as the innovation leader or rapid follower, and your product will struggle. Globally competitive markets, along with increasingly volatile consumer
EditorialBetter Design in Less Time
As products become more complex, market cycles shorten and competition increases, companies must find ways to reduce the time it takes to get their products to market. Simulation process compression is key to achieving time-to-market goals.
