The Energy & Utilities industry is accustomed to technical innovation and change. However, global megatrends such as the rise of alternative energy and prolonged low commodity prices are having a disruptive effect on the entire industry, and new market leaders are still being determined. For energy equipment OEMs, changes in the competitive landscape and more demanding customer requirements are forcing improvements in functionality and performance while driving down the total cost of ownership. Equipment designs must be smarter, more responsive and economical in addition to exceeding durability requirements under more demanding conditions and operating environments.
Product design teams need the most powerful, versatile and flexible tools for rapidly transforming concepts to marketable, cost-effective equipment solutions for evolving markets such as shale oil and renewables. This could include the ability to seamlessly switch from wireframe, surface, solid parametric or direct modeling techniques that allow designers to explore solutions that would previously have been cost- or time-prohibitive.
The new market leaders will unleash innovation while controlling risk by using highly productive, interactive, and intuitive design and simulation tools that have been tested on the world’s most demanding projects, and in the most severe service environments.
