Design Analysis in Product Innovation

Sponsored by SolidWorks Recorded August 17, 2006 Product innovation has recently come to the forefront as one of the truly sustainable competitive advantages a company can develop in the product development process. One common roadblock to the innovative process is the time and cost to prototype the endless variety of design options that can result from aggressive brainstorming. Design analysis, a proven technology for validating products in virtual prototype environment, typically using finite element analysis (FEA) methods, can help overcome this roadblock. Design analysis is as much about process as it is end results and in this podcast, Vince Adams, Product Manager for Analysis Products at SolidWorks Corporation discusses important aspects of this technology as it relates to product innovation.
