Modeling & Simulation. What is MODSIM?

Modeling & Simulation, or MODSIM,
is a data-driven, collaborative approach to product development.
Bring your teams closer together with concurrent modeling and simulation processes.
Carry out design verification and validation earlier on in the design process.
Develop better products faster.
Enjoy simpler in-process design updates, vastly improved traceability of design decisions
and faster product innovation with simulation-driven design.



Integrate Simulation Throughout Your Product Development

Faster Innovation

Making design verification faster means that Designers and Analysts can focus on product innovation and validation

Closer Collaboration

Sharing common models and data helps bring your teams together to work in a more focused, agile and efficient way

Design Confidence

Simulating product behavior in early design phases helps you to gain confidence in designs without the need for costly prototyping

Sustainable Creation

Bringing simulation into the design process sooner makes it easier to optimize product designs for sustainable manufacture

Discover Modeling & Simulation


Most modeling and most simulation today are performed as siloed disciplines using separate, often incompatible, software.

Integrated Modeling & Simulation (MODSIM) brings a revolution to the productivity of engineers and product teams. By using the same data and introducing simulation at the earliest phase of product development, engineers can confidently deliver the right product at the right time.

Modeling & Simulation User Disciplines
