Making Better Design Decisions Using 3D Digital CAE Slides for Simulation Results Processing, Reporting, Reviewing, & Refining Previous Designs

From design through manufacturing, today’s new product development processes are driven by robust digital applications – with one notable exception. For many manufacturers and product development organizations, CAE analysis reporting for design validation and review remains largely a manual 2D process.

Design Engineers, Release Engineers, and other stakeholders rely on feedback from CAE analysis to guide critical product design decisions. This feedback is often in the form of 2D non interactive static documents such as PowerPoint slides, images, or videos. These formats are decades-old and simply not designed to operate in today’s 3D digital environment and limit the opportunity for full realization of benefits from CAE simulations. The consequences are extensive administrative work by costly CAE Analysts, and a lack of insight to guide designers and critical decision-making.

What’s Ahead?

Throughout the coming year companies will begin to leverage digital 3D data more fully to transform simulation post-processing and reporting. With on-demand access from any web-enabled devices:

  • Design teams can explore simulation results making comparisons and annotations
  • Analysts can create, update, and share results in minutes
  • CAE Managers, Analysts, Designers, Release Engineers, and other stakeholders will collaborate freely and in real-time
  • Non-value-added manual tasks, bottlenecks, and delays are reduced or eliminated

In 2023 and beyond, designers, CAE managers, analysts, release engineers, and others will collaborate more freely and utilize the most accurate and complete information to make key product design decisions.
