Is Finite Element Analysis on your radar for projects you plan to develop during 2019? If not, it should be.

What It Is Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an engineering technique used to obtain “approximate solutions of boundary value problems.” By running the specs of your prototype through FEA software, technicians are able to determine strengths, weaknesses, and potential refinements.

In some situations, speed is of the essence. Think of self-styled “fast food” or “quick service” dining establishments. If such restaurants are unable to provide quality food quickly enough, their clientele may question the business model.

In many situations, however, the speed at which a good or service can be provided is less important than the quality. Although timing clearly does matter, speed doesn’t trump effectiveness. This is especially important to remember during pre-production.

Adding an extra step to a process is rarely considered efficient. After all, streamlining steps usually means that tasks are accomplished more quickly. However, if the added step is designed to save time and money in the long run, then would it not be worth considering?

This is the case with Finite Element Analysis (FEA). It’s an extra step in the process, but it’s an important one.
