Simulation and Collaboration with SimScale
The cloud is a big topic these days and many discussions are going on about new solutions in various application fields.
Engineering simulation is one of them. The discussions are often about whether cloud-based solutions will play a role in the CAE field or not. We at SimScale believe that in the end the decisive factor will be how much value these new solutions will bring to the table. Inherently a “cloud-based” solution – regardless of the application field – brings flexibility while maintaining scalability.
Simulation and Collaboration
Also for engineering simulation these two properties are attractive: Running a parameter study on many machines concurrently but only paying while using them – that is definitely a great feature. However the new opportunities such a solution offers are more than that: One of them is collaboration.
Having the current design drafts, simulation results and helpful engineering tools online enables users to work together with colleagues, clients or a support team – fast and conveniently. Depending on the scenario these new opportunities help to work more efficiently: Getting fast help with a simulation setup problem, showing simulation results to a colleague or a client remotely without requiring specialized software or getting a quick overview over the simulation projects your team is currently working on.
This is one of the new opportunities an online platform approach to CAE provides that can lead to a competitive advantage – and therefore creates value for the user.
In case you want to get an idea of these new simulation and collaboration opportunities, you can meet us at the Hannover Messe next week or simply create a free account for the SimScale platform. We are looking forward to get your opinion on these new approaches to engineering simulation.
