With the birth of 3D CAD – product simulation saw a new era, where existing models could be reused for calculation purposes. Since then, nearly all manufacturers perform all kinds of model based simulations, but even though companies now have better ability to use the designs for simulation, the boundaries between CAD and CAE (Computer Aided Engineering aka Calculations) was still an unsolved issue.
Another challenge for many manufacturing companies, especially in the medium size, is to maintain resources with CAE competence with a relatively low number of annual jobs of advanced type.
In previous years, there was big differences in the capabilities of tools developed by companies where they specialized on CEA. Since then, Creo has closed that gap extensively allowing for the option of a lower cost of ownership solutions without reducing your requirements. Start looking into how much your FEA designs cost today, and we guarantee we can provide you with a better and more cost effective strategy.
