Reasons for Outsourcing Your Simulation Engineering – AltaSim Technologies Consulting Services Described: Part 1


Engineers, product designers and researchers often find our website and then reach out to us with questions about how AltaSim Technologies could be a guide on their path to solving challenges using COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software. I thought I would share some of the key components of these conversations to help you understand how AltaSim Technologies can be useful as you reach higher levels of insight and solve your engineering challenges through simulation.

Part 1: Implementation of COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software

Many of the engineers that contact us are considering implementing COMSOL Multiphysics into their engineering processes. They contact AltaSim Technologies because they want to understand the value they will get from COMSOL Multiphysics simulations prior to investing in the software. These engineers are seeking to understand the cost:benefit of the software and to get a rough estimate of their return on investment (ROI).

Benefit Cost

Our discussions address both the cost and the benefits of using COMSOL Multiphysics. Engineers typically understand the software costs and are attempting to understand the additional costs associated with moving up the learning curve, so their simulations can impact their engineering decisions and project budget. This cost varies dramatically depending on the engineering challenges they are facing, the simulation detail required and their experience with simulations.

AltaSim Technologies provides engineers with a cost and timetable to complete a simulation model. Our experienced engineers show, in a detailed scope of work, how they plan to develop simulations that address our client’s engineering challenges. We then discuss the cost and time required to train their engineers to develop these simulations. Typically, AltaSim Technologies will dramatically reduce the time required to develop these simulations compared with an engineer moving up the learning curve. This working simulation enables engineers to clearly see the benefits of simulating their engineering challenge. This approach allows engineers to get answers to their current engineering questions and provides them with a working simulation that they can use in the future. These engineers then receive training from AltaSim Technologies on how to use the simulation to develop the desired results.
