I had occasion recently to meet with some of our channel partners in Europe. In separate conversations with two of them they discussed the value that CAE brings to their customers. Interestingly they both observed an increasing trend in the use of CAE software within their customers’ design processes.
Tom Santegoeds, managing partner at Femto Engineering in the Netherlands talked about how the use of simulation increases customer understanding of their designs, allowing them to investigate product behavior more deeply and make design improvements cost effectively.
Tad Chmielewski, CEO of FEMComp Engineering in Sweden talked about the increase in usage of CAE and how it helps innovation in design.
