Volkswagen and ESI Group: 23 Years of Strategic Collaboration for Virtual Product Performance

Virtual Performance
Ground Transportation
With this further development of the software suite, ESI Group has achieved a quantum leap in the field of simulations. By being able to utilize a unique mathematical model for both crash and load testing, we’re improving our development efficiency at several stages of a project. Given the evershortening development cycles in the automobile sector, this gives us a decisive competitive edge.
