Digital simulation for innovation

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. Doing better with less to conserve resources, create and maintain a market position, outperform the competition, meet regulatory requirements, motivate teams… For engineers and technical teams, it’s all about being able to capture information from customers, innovation managers, the market, marketing, and so on. Being able to anticipate the response to the expectations of a multitude of stakeholders (a board, customers, production teams, regulatory affairs…) is strategic, and it’s crucial to be able to iterate rapidly on the solutions adopted.

DAES engineers have put digital simulation at the service of innovation, as it is a powerful tool in many fields. It lets you simulate scenarios and analyze data quickly and efficiently. Here are just a few examples of what digital simulation can contribute to innovation:

Cost reduction :

Digital simulation helps reduce product development costs by simulating scenarios and eliminating design errors before production. This can reduce development and production costs, and save money on materials, labor and equipment. By studying a new product or system concept, the creation of its digital twin ensures ROI over the entire lifecycle.

Quality improvement :

By simulating scenarios and analyzing the results, digital simulation can help improve product quality by identifying potential problems before they occur. This can help improve product reliability, service life and performance.

Accelerating the design process :

By using digital simulation, engineers can quickly test several different scenarios, speeding up the design process and allowing more possibilities to be explored. This can enable companies to bring products to market more quickly, and support decision-making before prototypes or tooling are launched.

Performance prediction :

Using numerical simulation, engineers can predict product performance under real-life conditions, which can help identify necessary improvements and optimize design. This can enable companies to produce more efficient products with a controlled life cycle and an adapted business model.

Harm reduction :

Numerical simulation helps identify potential risks in product design and production, enabling companies to eliminate or mitigate them before production. This can reduce safety, quality and regulatory compliance risks.

Testing and importing techniques and technologies from one sector to another :

From watchmaking to med tech, as part of technology transfers from research centers….

By making visible phenomena that are sometimes invisible, digital simulation is an invaluable tool for innovation, enabling engineers to be more creative while ensuring reliability and exhaustiveness in the scenarios to be taken into account.
