R&D Driven Simulation - FDA supports it!

In this live webinar upcoming on Friday, June 22, 2018, at 11 a.m. EDT (4 p.m. BST/UK),

Industry experts from Siemens PLM Lionel Broglia, business development manager, and Tom Phillips, Ph.D., director of simulation portfolio development, will review concepts of design excellence and walk through a practical example to show how these concepts can be used to develop a more robust and innovative product development process.

The potential for proactive use of simulation and CAE in medical devices is huge: saving lives and saving millions of dollars for the industry. This is accomplished by optimizing designs for performance and reliability, reducing the number of required benchtop tests and clinical trials, as well as accelerating the regulatory approval process. Successfully employing simulation forms the fundamental basis for a sound product engineering practice and drives design excellence.

The successful use of simulation in product engineering begins at the concept stage, even before CAD exists. Using a process that tracks requirements, manages simulation/test requests and makes use of simulation to investigate innovative concepts before a physical prototype is built is key to effective innovation. As part of this process, system simulation techniques can be used to explore various concepts, optimize the architecture of a device and verify that performance goals are achieved. Hundreds of concepts can be explored in this way, far exceeding what could be accomplished by building prototypes and testing, resulting in more innovative and better-performing designs. 

Additionally, since the concept has been thoroughly vetted on the computer, there is a high likelihood that requirements will be met without having to repeatedly iterate/backtrack through the detailed design effort. This results in faster product development, lower cost, fewer prototypes, faster time to release and much lower risk of product performance issues.
