Digitalization, digital transformation, and digital twins have become key business initiatives at many companies. The goal of these initiatives ultimately is to accelerate revenue and profitability growth by speeding innovation, improving productivity, and increasing reliability across the enterprise. Industry leaders know that revenue and profitability both suffer when their product fails to meet design objectives, underperforms the competition or does not meet customer expectations. When your product fails, your customer is unhappy, your re-design costs will be higher than planned, your reputation may be damaged, or worse, you may go out of business.
Given the complexity of today’s products, how can companies be sure that they will deliver the most reliable and innovative products to the market? Moreover, how can they leverage their product superiority to deliver additional value to their customer and more profitability for their business? Continue reading
Have you ever thought, “I love this product, but it would be even better if…”? Maybe you wish it were more durable, lighter or even more aesthetically pleasing. Perhaps if it had more features, or operated under more grueling conditions, it would better fit your needs. While you may not think about these little things very often, we at Jacobs Analytics are obsessed with these details and believe in perpetual innovation. We have taken the answers to these questions and designed things like a stronger bike frame and a colder water.
The products we use everyday make our lives easier and more efficient; and when they work well enough, we tend not to think much about them. Then one day you come across a better version and realize the product you have been using did have room for improvement, and the improved design makes your daily experience that much better.

Have you ever heard the story of David and Goliath? The old tale tells of how the young David defeated the mighty giant Goliath with daring and clever methods instead of traditional ones. At ReVibe Energy, we’ve been inspired by the story.
Now, we’re not aiming to triumph over our competitors using the same means David used against Goliath, but rather to attract potential customers through innovative and agile methods. By using engineering simulation software from ANSYS we can distinguish ourselves from our competitors and offer current and prospective customers better products in a shorter amount of time.
Billet Designs is a small engineering firm that found great success in using ANSYS SpaceClaim as their primary 3-D CAD tool. They specialize in wide variety of offerings for their clients, including product design for automotive and consumer products, programming, automation, PLC controls and robotics.
Steven Aguirre of Billet Designs says their main focus is on the design of electromechanical components of consumer products. His broad background in various industries gives him a unique and expansive knowledge into common design and product development issues and challenges. As the owner of a small engineering firm, he has to balance product design with marketing, order fulfillment, sales, manufacturing and general development of his product line. Continue reading
Over the past two decades, I’ve had the good fortune to meet with product development teams in nearly every industry, attend a multitude of engineering conferences and read hundreds of case studies on engineering simulation. Without a doubt, the principle reasons driving businesses to invest in engineering simulation have been to reduce development time and costs while improving product quality. Continue reading
