Innovation is no longer just a differentiator for businesses in the manufacturing industry – It’s now essential for mere survival. But with engineering time becoming increasingly limited, how can your organization push the boundaries of product performance?
While this initiative can seem daunting, there are approaches to improving performance that can be used systemically to increase value and competitiveness of your products.
Through the practical application of established technologies, such as simulation and generative design, you can explore more design possibilities, get the most out of the designs you make, and run in-depth analyses to validate designs more quickly and efficiently.


How do you know if an idea is good or bad? While most experienced engineers are skilled in sorting the promising from the potential failures, simulation can significantly help guide this decision making. Simulation can be used to model and test radically different design ideas up-front and determine with more definitive results if those ideas have merit to proceed.

Generative Design

Generative design, while still in the early stages of development and adoption, provides another method to identify new opportunities to improve product performance. How does it work? It mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design by using inputted design goals and constraints to explore all the possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn’t.
