Being at the forefront of innovation today means taking a holistic perspective when looking at the design process. The ESTECO technology addresses the entire design workflow: by orchestrating best-in-class simulation tools, it streamlines design iterations and leads engineers to new, enhanced solutions. Many top industry players have started internal reorganizations to keep pace with rapidly changing engineering practices and are moving toward fast-paced, shared, multi-domain and system-oriented design processes.

One excellent example is Cummins, worldwide leading manufacturer of power generation equipment and diesel engines where quality is of the utmost importance. It’s crucial they meet the criteria of their customers concerns, such as total cost, initial cost, quality and fuel economy. The company is implementing the Analysis-Led Design initiative to get their products right the first time, in the highest quality and get to market faster. Within this process, taking an optimization approach has helped the company switch from a component to a “super-system” focus. ESTECO solutions enable multidisciplinary engineering practices to consolidate specialized expertise and streamline teamwork by allocating competence and software resources where needed.

However, moving from a test-centric to an analysis-centric culture is not enough. Another challenge remains and that is interoperability, which potentially could remain an ongoing challenge.

The new solution helps teams manage all cross-functional concurrent design steps by integrating multiple modeling formats. Its service-oriented architecture facilitates the execution, sharing and re-use of enterprise engineering knowledge. Taking control of product design iterations and using relevant performance metrics for rational and informed decision making will be a key advantage for companies aiming at being true innovators.
