Today’s complex development projects require new methods and experienced engineers to deliver the right answer using simulation software and services. In the past few years, Virtual Prototyping has become critical for the entire product development process. Today, virtual methods show significant advantages over physical tests in response time, cost, repeatability, or optimization - especially in the early design phase.

The value of Virtual Prototyping has been driven by the increasing realism of the physics included in the simulation and the rapidly expanding capability of modern computer hardware. Harnessing the full capacity of realistic simulation requires experts trained in the latest methods and tools.

With over 40 years of experience in Computer-Aided Engineering, ESI has a team of specialists in various disciplines to help our customers fill resource gaps, improve internal knowledge, and get better results in a shorter timeframe.
