Get It Better
Virtual Prototyping empowers ESI’s customers to achieve manufacturing excellence: better products, better processes, better collaboration or better productivity.
In the past few years, Virtual Prototyping has become significantly more important for the entire development process since virtual methods today show significant advantages over physical tests in terms of answer time, cost, repeatability or optimization especially in the early design phase.
And now, with Virtual Reality, ESI’s customers can experience their product real-time real-size and make accurate engineering reviews very early in the process, empowering them to make faster and more accurate decisions.
Since its beginnings 40 years ago, ESI has continually built strong partnerships with major industry players, be it in the automotive sector with Renault or Volkswagen Group, in the aerospace sector with Astrium, or in the aeronautics sector with AVIC-BIAM. Resulting from this co-creation with industry partners, ESI's Virtual Prototyping delivers the right answer for today’s complex development projects, taking into account each and every step of the product engineering process.
“... a joint collaborative effort between Astrium and ESI is the best partnership solution to address the new global challenges of the space industry. We’re setting the scene for the next generation of space vehicles and technologies, while promoting Virtual Prototyping and Virtual Engineering.”
Hervé Gilibert, CTO and CQO of Astrium Space Transportation
