Simulation Benchmark – a structured approach to assessing your digital simulation maturity

Does your organization build mutiple prototypes for physical testing and verification? Do you feel that you could leverage more CAE and simulation technology? Is getting simulation results a bottleneck in your engineering process? If the answer is yes, you could benefit from a Simulation Benchmark.

The Simulation Benchmark assessment captures the opinions of senior and knowledgeable personnel in your organization on the current state and future Simulation requirements for your business. In addition, a priority for improvement and an assessment of current effectiveness is recorded. It centers on 17 key Simulation “Pillars” ranging from Physical Prototypes, through to Best Practices. The pillars are listed below:

  1. Simulation Tools and Technology
  2. Physical Prototypes and Testing
  3. Complexity of Physical Prototyping
  4. Regulatory Requirements
  5. Materials Library
  6. Simulation Automation
  7. Management of Simulation Data
  8. Simulation Process
  9. Simulation organization
  10. Optimization Tools
  11. Stiffness and Deflection
  12. Durability and Fatigue
  13. Crash or Drop
  14. Fluid Dynamics
  15. Thermal
  16. Simulation demand
  17. Best Practices

After the 17 pillars have been covered, senior and knowledgeable personnel are also invited to “spend” an assumed benefit in value areas within your business. The areas identified are improving time to market, increasing the portfolio of the company and improving product quality.

Finally, the tool produces a comprehensive report showing the customer’s current state of maturity and a benchmark comparison with the industry.

Participants have found this process to be very useful as it allows them to prioritize their initiatives, gives a high-level view of their roadmap to success and provides them with industry benchmark information.
