Modern product design tools are indispensable to the engineer, enabling virtual testing of your first idea to the verification and optimization of the designs and processes necessary to manufacture high-quality products. The advantages of a simulation-led workflow extend throughout an organization or company by allowing your design teams to innovate with reduced risk, cutting the cost and time associated with physical prototyping, while meeting time-to-market goals.

Eliminate the Workflow Bottleneck

Your organization or design engineering team could face significant challenges in implementing such a workflow, despite their numerous advantages, because highly trained specialists are required. Additionally, a small group of experts often have to serve an entire organization while covering a diverse range of simulation needs. A bottleneck results, limiting the pace of the product design cycle and innovation, which in turn affects competitiveness and future revenue.



The latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics software and its Application Builder provide you with the tools needed to turn detailed physics and mathematical models into easy-to-use simulation applications for use by everyone in your organization and beyond. Thus, the workflow bottleneck is bypassed.

Design Optimization with Simulation Apps

To continue addressing your most critical workflow challenges, COMSOL is committed to providing engineers with easy-to-use, affordable simulation and application design tools as well as access to highly skilled support engineers. With COMSOL Multiphysics, engineers from a diverse range of technical areas can solve systems of equations representing coupled physics effects as they would occur in nature; hence you can base your design decisions on highly accurate data.

Running your design optimization based on this real-world model is a great competitive advantage. COMSOL provides add-on products such as the Optimization Module as well as products for interfacing with CAD software to enable topology optimization, inverse problems, and time-dependent optimization analyses.

A simulation application can be developed for a specific design optimization task, and presents only those parameters, results, and reports that may be of interest to the user. There is no learning curve to run simulation apps, and users won’t require previous experience in using modeling and simulation software.

COMSOL specifically developed COMSOL Server, a software that makes it possible to run apps in a readily available COMSOL Client for Windows or in any major web browser. With its generous license, costs for large-scale deployment are minimized, and apps can run on local hardware or on the cloud for worldwide use. With Application Builder and COMSOL Server, you can bring easy-to-use simulation apps to everyone.
