Why physical prototyping and virtual testing are so important.
Physical prototyping and virtual testing with simulation software helps engineers interrogate their designs before they commit to making a physical product.
Detecting design flaws early can result in big savings, not only in monetary terms, but also in the time spent by the design and development team.
At Innova Systems, our mission is to help each one of our customers to improve their new product development, by introducing and facilitating the use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation throughout the whole design cycle, from concept, right the way through to manufacturing.
Join us as we take a look at what companies around the world had to say about the subject in a recent survey from Dassault Systèmes and engineering.com…
Discover the latest trends in our four part report below.

In part one of the report:
How do engineers validate their designs? | What optimisation standards do they follow? | What design requirements they plan to use, and which are considered unnecessary? | Which tests are used most often to validate design models? | Do engineers test for fatigue and ruptures in physical prototypes? | How many physical prototypes are created on average?
In part two of the report:
What makes simulation work challenging? | What keeps engineers from running simulations more frequently? | Do smaller companies have an advantage? | What's the ideal number of iterations prior to production? | How are virtual simulation and physical testing being combined? | What would engineers change to streamline their design-simulation cycles? | How long does it take to outsource simulation work?
Take a closer look at SOLIDWORKS Simulation from Innova Systems.
As the report shows, virtual simulation is an important engineering tool for synthesising and defining physical products, but thanks to SOLIDWORKS, sophisticated simulation is no longer just for specialists, as manufacturing companies across a broad range of industries have discovered.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation allows product engineers to make technical decisions driven by simulation insights, resulting in benefits for both product design and for their businesses.
