Have a challenging engineering problem that you don’t know how to approach? Then our Consulting Partner Program is for you!
The SimScale platform was designed to empower all engineers—including those with no prior experience with simulation—to leverage computer-aided engineering (CAE) to design their products better, faster, and more cost-efficiently. To make that possible, we have assembled a vast collection of learning resources to help you make the most of our simulation tools. That includes free workshops and webinars, a SimWiki that covers various physics and simulation concepts, a live chat function that provides support from our engineering team, step-by-step tutorials, our forum where you can get help from the SimScale user community, and much more. However, for cases when the engineering problem at hand is particularly challenging, or the time constraints are high, you might need outside expertise—which is why we started our Consulting Partner Program.
Our consulting partners are engineering companies with high technical expertise in fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, thermodynamics, and more. These companies specialize in different industries and applications that will help you get even the toughest job completed to a high standard. Since 2016, SimScale has been expanding its Consulting Partner Program with the aim of helping companies of all sizes get the most out of engineering simulation. We work to foster long-term partnerships with the members of the program, who use SimScale on real-world structural, thermal, and fluid design challenges and are ready to provide our users with their expert insights.
Each member of our Consulting Partner Program has a dedicated page on the SimScale website, where their individual expertise is listed. If you are interested in working with a consultant on one of your projects, either reach out to them directly via the partner page or get in contact with our support team—we will connect you to the right partner based on region and required expertise.
Successfully solving most engineering problems is a demanding process—you need the right software and hardware tools, highly qualified and trained people to operate them, as well as industry-specific experience. Having all the necessary resources in-house is not impossible, but is challenging for any company. Consulting a member of our Consulting Partner Program or outsourcing parts of your product development process to them can not only save you time and money but also ensure that your final design is reliable and competitive.
By employing the engineering services of one of our consulting partners you will get access to:
All of the above would result in a cost- and time-efficient solution, without any large upfront investments in software, hardware, personnel, or research. Consulting an external engineering expert can be invaluable to small businesses without their own engineering departments, as well as large companies that want to supplement their in-house engineering departments.
As of today, we have nine highly competent consulting partners, with expertise across various industries, including aerospace, HVAC, manufacturing, mining, agriculture, oil and gas, and shipbuilding.
