In the race to deliver new and innovative products to market faster, manufacturers face many challenges, including globalization, cost reductions, and shorter development cycles. To gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace, manufacturers have started to leverage the robust capabilities of realistic simulation to lessen dependency on physical testing, reduce part weight, or evaluate the use of alternative materials during the product design phase to ensure optimum product performance.
Abaqus is the analysis product that allows all users to collaborate and seamlessly share simulation data and approved methods without loss of information fidelity. Abaqus offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications.
