Engineering and scientific simulation is becoming the critical tool that fuels the innovation pipeline for leading companies in industries and applications ranging from the development of new spacecraft and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in aerospace to revolutionary new drug discovery techniques in life sciences to advanced electronic design automation (EDA) for the next generation of semiconductor devices. In today’s presentation, Adam will explore how empowering user access to on-demand resources for hardware and software is providing engineers the tools to move up a level of abstraction in the development process, improving their ability to handle large complex models and utilize simulation driven development as a key asset for innovation and breakthrough technologies.
