I spend a lot of time talking about the importance of injecting upfront CFD into your engineering process. Even deeper, I want you to inject it into the DNA of your corporate culture. That’s when the magic happens and you get to enjoy radical reductions in time-to-market and development costs. And, you make more money.
Where to start, though? Don’t worry about swallowing some big philosophy or process whole. That can be too theoretical and overwhelming.
Just pick 1 upcoming project where you think upfront CAE could make the slightest bit of difference. Specifically tell one of your engineers to do a preliminary, back of the envelope simulation.
Don’t say, “Hey guys, please start using upfront CFD on new projects.”
Do say, “Jim, please run upfront CFD models on our two X15 design ideas by Friday.”
