Will FEA Really Save Me Money?
FEA and money. It’s been said that you have to spend money to make money, and there’s some truth to that. While current economic situations increase the pressure on businesses (particularly start-ups) to cut costs, there are certain expenses that cannot be overlooked. In fact, some expenses will actually save you money in the long run.
Nobody is saying that you should spend money that you don’t have. However, you need to be willing to invest in your business if you want it to grow, otherwise, it will be next to impossible to take it to the next level. Or it might take you a lot longer than you’d like. (Kinsta)
In order to accelerate your production and stand out in a crowded market, you really should consider investing in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) — particularly in the prototype phase.
What Will FEA Do For Me?
In short, FEA will employ leading mathematical techniques to run complex structural analysis on your product via a suite of software, identifying potential problems, weaknesses, and areas of concern. You are then free to address these problem areas one by one, collapsing the trial-and-error phase and saving you money in the process.
Spend to Save
Most of us don’t think in terms of spending money in order to save money; however, that is the exact dynamic in play here.
It’s the same thing motivating property owners to engage in preventative maintenance. It’s cheaper to treat your HVAC system to seasonal checkups and fix small problems along the way than replace the entire system due to total failure. In order to save a lot of money on complete replacements down the road, they’re more than willing to spend a small amount in repairs right now.
This is the same principle in play with FEA.
