Demonstrating why a virtual culture is essential in transforming business

The Design and Simulation approach provides our clients with a ‘Right the First Time’ innovative product, process and facility utilising the latest design techniques and simulation tools ensuring their product reaches the marketplace successfully.

The Design and Simulation theme provides a professional engineering service supporting inventors, through to large OEMs.

Adopting a Design and Simulation approach not only reduces product, process, and manufacturing risks, it optimises product design by determining the primary product characteristics. It reduces product development time; manufacturing costs and optimises the life cycle performance. Assembly process design with virtual validation effectively de-risks manufacturing strategies, reducing facility installation and commissioning time and improving time to market.

The application of Digital Tools such as Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics supports innovation in product and process design, defines process parameters, identifies failure mechanisms and reduces expensive physical testing leading to robust manufacturing processes and quality products. Discrete Event Simulation enables optimal digital facility design, detailed Cost Modelling providing an estimate for investment leading to business case sign off.

So whether you are developing: new products; creating a manufacturing strategy; design improvements or facility optimisation the Design and Simulation Theme will help you on your road to success.


We are working at the forefront of applied technology. The job is exciting and varied and every day brings a new challenge.
