“Ansys Gateway powered by AWS unleashes the computing resources we need to quickly solve electromagnetics-related challenges in our Smart Motor System™ designs. We get tremendous acceleration during development with the added computational power, going from weeks to days to come up with answers to our most pressing technological challenges which otherwise would not have been possible.”

“What we do with Ansys simulation is reduce the time we are
taking for testing by reducing the number of physical tests and
improving them. Cloud computing is a must-have. We probably
wouldn't be able to use Ansys — or it would be very complicated
— if we didn't have the cloud computing approach because it
gives us a reduction in the economies of scale.”
