Engineering project managers are always looking to save time and money. With today's changing marketplace, product developers are strapped with expectations of quicker time to market and more intricate products. Ways to integrate and streamline the product development process can provide for better products using less resources. If you could integrate design and analysis, wouldn't you save a lot of precious time during product development?
Analysis isn't just for analysts anymore. With CATIA for Analysis, designers are able to analyze their designs without the help of an FEA expert. CATIA for Analysis allows designers to perform analysis functions right within the CATIA software.
Detect problems early with CATIA for Analysis
Designers starting the analysis process within CATIA is beneficial for the overall product development process. Designers who use CATIA for Analysis are able to detect problems within the design early in the process, allowing them to size the design and compare alternatives before the analysis process. This helps designers reduce project and product development costs.
Design and analysis in a single environment
Different tools are often used by designers and analysts. Though both are working with the same product or project, they often use different software and processes in order to get the results they need. Using a product like CATIA for Analysis allows the design and analysis to happen within one single environment, thus design iterations can be rapidly validated. Saving time, this feature allows for improved project performance.
Let the designer focus on the design
It should be noted that CATIA for Analysis isn't for analysts. The software allows the designer to design, focusing on the geometry, while allowing designers to use an analysis function within the same interface they use to design. With designers focusing on the geometry, the analysis will update with the changes made in the design. This way, designers can easily understand whether design changes improve the performance. Designers and analysts alike can have confidence in the analysis results. With adaptive meshing, there's no need to manually mesh. Automesh large-scale projects to save time!
