Today’s manufacturing companies face a serious dilemma. Their products are becoming increasingly complex while their ability to add time or resources to the development of these products is limited. The complexity of these products places a higher demand on simulation than ever before. However, having enough skilled resources to handle this increased simulation workload is challenging due to the amount of time these high-valued analysts spend just making slides. As much as 35% of an analysts time today is spent turning simulation results into 2D PowerPoint slides that represent most company’s CAE Report.
VCollab provides a solution that helps companies transform the process of simulation by freeing analysts to deliver more critical simulation and by increasing the impact that simulation results can provide in helping companies make critical design decisions.
With VCollab, 3D CAE Reports can be created automatically reducing the amount of time to create reports from days to minutes. Additionally, instead of the static 2D PowerPoint reports used today, VCollab provides a full 3D model of the results that can be shared and interrogated on the fly. These 3D Digital reports not only free up critical analysts’ time but also provide results in a clear format that allows design engineers, as well as other stakeholders to quickly identify potential areas of concern.
At GKN Automotive, simulation experts in the US and Mexico use VCollab to share simulation results with design engineers and other stakeholders. VCollab has allowed them to save substantial analysts time and has led to better and faster design decision-making.
With VCollab, 3D Digital CAE Reports can be created no matter what major CAE solver a company is using. Digital transformation of the simulation process beyond 2D manual processes to automated 3D reports is an essential for companies to remain competitive in today’s complex product environment.
