While hardware was getting faster, technical computing software vendors were merging and acquiring CAD, meshing, simulation and analysis companies. They retooled themselves and created comprehensive engineering suites; presenting users with innovative schematic views that tie together CAD with the entire simulation process. The schematics serve as guides to engineers, enabling them to process complex multi-physics analyses with drag-and-drop simplicity. Their intention is to accelerate your innovation rate by reducing complexity and increasing system utilization.
