Benchmarking and Competitive Analysis are fundamental ingredients in successful product development.
Optimal provides methodologies for measuring and monitoring key performance characteristics of our customers and relevant competitors’ products and product components.
Our system includes a comprehensive review of design constraints to get optimal results from our measurement and scanning processes. We offer a unique blend of advanced technologies and measurement expertise that provide you with cost effective, rapid solutions.
We can even provide you complete product teardown to a final build book referenced to cataloged parts and more.
Optimal’s comprehensive competitive benchmarking services allow you to answer these critical questions about a product:
- What does it look like?
- What’s in it?
Bill of Materials
- How was it made?
Bill of Process
- What did it cost?
- Why was it designed the way it was?
The use of Computer Aided Engineering Services, or CAE Services, has become more widespread as today’s industry. Pressure to decrease product development time, improve quality, and reduce the cost of physical prototypes and testing is driving increased use of CAE simulation and CAE Services throughout the product lifecycle.
Significant investment and effort is required to maintain a proper CAE environment and qualified CAE engineers. Even larger companies find their engineering needs can exceed their installed capacity or resources, requiring outsourcing to qualified third-party CAE Consulting Services in times of overflow and time crunch.
However, CAE can be as much of an art as it is a science, with experience playing an important factor when setting up or analyzing results. Wrongly conducted, CAE can lead to incorrect engineering conclusions. So you don’t want just any company doing your CAE Modeling and Analysis work.
