Introduction of MODSIM: Its Implementation Journey

Evolution of unified modeling & simulation across engineering departments and it's benefits

Consumer demands are driving smart, connected and autonomous technologies that are accelerating the digital revolution. There exists an enormous challenge for engineering departments (electrical, electronic, controls, thermal, hydraulics, etc.) to work together to provide the optimal customer experience. Unified Modeling and Simulation technology from Dassault Systèmes brings these groups together to ensure collaboration and provide an environment for sustainable innovation.
