An Integral Part of the Simulation, Design, and Manufacturing Workflow
When the simulation experts in an organization turn their models into applications, the overall simulation, design, and manufacturing workflow is improved. The simulation expert no longer has to rerun the same or slightly different analyses for other collaborators or customers and the organization can spread the advantages of simulation to a larger group of people. To build their own computational applications, your simulation experts need COMSOL Multiphysics® with its built-in Application Builder. To make these applications accessible to many people at a fraction of the cost, your organization needs COMSOL Server™.
Each simulation application has its own customized user interface, where the application creator can control the inputs and outputs that the application user can apply and manipulate. Experts create these apps by including only the parameters relevant to the design of a specific process or product. This better transfers the simulation expert’s knowledge and experience to the people involved in the design and manufacturing processes across all engineering disciplines in an organization — even those without prior simulation experience.
The simulation expert brings theoretical knowledge and the power of simulation to the optimization of a design or process. Other project stakeholders can then bring their own experiences of building or operating these designs and processes to the overall workflow by using the simulation application and, potentially, providing feedback to the simulation expert.
To make such an augmented workflow a reality, the applications need to be easy to distribute, access, and run. COMSOL Server™ is the product for deploying applications and bringing them to the hands of colleagues and team members. It is also the hub for managing many different applications over multiple functions or operations in an organization.
