Finite element analysis (FEA) is a critical tool when it comes to product development. Simulation gives the product designer many scenarios to test product designs; this reduces the failure and provides measurable benefits in terms of lower manufacturing investment, and better efficiency. In troubled economic times, outsourcing FEA Analysis can give manufacturing companies a competitive edge while lowering costs.
Often used in complex stress problems, finite element methods are commonplace in many industries. FEA is sometimes used in conjunction with structural analysis or stress analysis. Stress analysis can be applied extensively in a plethora of manufacturing scenarios where cost, material, weight, strength etc., need to be optimized or where safety factors need to be determined. Analysis is also a cost-effective alternative to experimental testing
