When given a certain task, the aim is not only to comply with the requirements specified, but also to achieve - under the
given circumstances - the best possible outcome, which means searching for the otimum result.
S I M U L O P T provides solutions to all such problems by using
numerical simulation and optimisation methods. This technology, exploiting digital
computation, rapidly and safely produces results with high accuracy.
Simulation and optimisation can successfully be applied, not only in engineering, materials processing and
production engineering, but also in economic and industrial management (operations research) and in many
areas of research and development, e.g. in the natural sciences.
WHY COOPERATE WITH S I M U L O P T ?
The employment of simulation and optimisation systems, in module form, using existing, tested and readily applicable
program blocks, and in close cooperation between you - the client - and SIMULOPT,
guarantees time and cost savings and flexibility in performing all tasks.
