Challenge

Maximize Performance & Quality through Intelligent Simulation

Creating high quality, high performance products used to require endless design rounds, countless prototypes, and painstaking physical product testing. As brands and manufacturers focus on getting closer to the consumer, these older methods delay production and damage competitive advantage. Advanced material and performance simulation can quickly guide material choices and test for potential failures allowing designers to arrive at a better physical sample sooner and at a higher level of quality.

Challenge

Drive Sustainability while Reducing Supply Chain Cost and Delivery Time

Today’s New Consumer doesn’t just demand high quality products at a fair price, they demand products manufactured with sustainable solutions and using sustainable materials. Intelligent supply chains can redirect appropriate materials and labor where they are needed while factoring in ways to lower the total carbon footprint. The result is typically a more sustainable process that lowers cost and reduces overall delivery time.

Challenge

Make Decisions Earlier with Advanced Material Visualization

The ability to grow market share relies on a companies ability to make early decisions and be ahead of trend while reducing the time to market. Being able to take an existing product and quickly visualize it in different colors and/or materials is imperative for keeping product lines fresh in front of the consumer. As an additional benefit, the same processes that a designer uses to visualize new product configurations can be leveraged for personalization at the point of sale.

Challenge

Drive Consumer Choice with Customization and Configuration

More and more consumers are looking for unique products that are specific to their needs. A consumer may be looking for a ball that plays well in wet conditions and in a specific color. Not providing them with options may result in a lost sale and a feeling of dissatisfaction. Providing them with an easy path that allows them to both identify the correct ball for the conditions and then customize it for their need is an imperative for brands and manufacturers wanting to grow their business.
