Over the past few years, the industry has seen an uptick in the use of FEA (Finite Element Analysis). Of course, this is unsurprising, given the software’s versatile applications. Through running models and prototypes through FEA, industry leaders are able to save valuable time and money by troubleshooting problems, both pre and post-production.

Leveraging FEA for Pre-Production Needs

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.

When it comes to Finite Element Analysis, more companies than ever are putting this new technology to use at various points in the production process. Everything from the probability of fractures in ceramic components to a tendency toward buckling in honeycomb structures has been analyzed by this method.

To some people, adding an extra step to your production process may sound counter-intuitive; however, if that step is to consider Finite Element Analysis (FEA), then it might not sound so crazy after all. By adding FEA to the mix, chances are high that you will shave both time and expense off your pre-production process and bring your product to the market quickly and efficiently.

Most people seem to think that faster is better.

Americans enjoy fast food, instant messaging, and even (believe it or not) new quick-cooking slow cookers. While not everything is better faster, we recognize that manufacturers could potentially save money if they were able to collapse the amount of time spent in the pre-production phase.

A considerable increase in the demand for the use of finite element analysis in product design is predicted for the coming years. It’s no wonder, considering that the benefits of using finite element analysis (FEA) include:

If you are relatively new to the manufacturing or construction field, the term finite element analysis may seem both unfamiliar and intimidating. However, we assure you that it’s one concept well worth looking into on a number of levels. For one, it has the potential to save lives, decrease accidents and prevent public relations nightmares. Allow us to explain using metal stage supports as examples.

When your product represents a structural component of your customer’s purchase it sure better be structurally sound. Who can afford a costly recall or, even worse, be responsible for a personal accident? To help ensure against part failure American Hydroformers employs exacting Finite Element Analysis (FEA) procedures.

According to a tech engineering firm known as Frame, CAD Windows apps, like FEA (Finite Element Analysis), can now be moved to the cloud, which will bring a hug change in how CAD operates.

From an article that outlines the subject:

The value of CAD systems for electronic envisioning of designs has been one of the most important drivers of what some call the post-industrial age.

CAD revolutionized the design industry, allowing fewer people than ever to render 2D and 3D objects. Significantly cutting down manpower.

CAD, as the article points out, is apart of the larger Digital Product Development (DPD), which is situated inside the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) set of processes, which includes Finite Element Analysis (FEA) among others. It is, for the sake of design argument, the home base for how all design and planning begins.

CAD isn’t, as is probably no surprise, a set of systems that has made it to the cloud. Because of render computational speeds and a specialized set of codecs that need to be speedy in how they operate, CAD is relegated to localization. But Frame aims to change that.

As Frame’s website says: Frame is like Box, except instead of them delivering your documents via the cloud, they deliver your apps.

Apps that can be ran from an internal infrastructure, or from a cloud-based one, depending on your preferences.

But why CAD?

Because CAD needs it. According to Frame engineers, CAD is among the most demanding of all design programs, often requiring the most intense graphics, and a need for preserving and storing the highest quality of images.

It also boasts a compatibility with other Windows software, the key ability to host PDM or cloud storage, and a greater than stellar graphical performance.

All in all, having apps stored locally or in the cloud is a huge advancement for business and potential savings alike.
