Mô tả công việc

Imagine you own a company that wants to create a new product—but before starting the manufacturing process, you want to test the product first. How can you test it without actually making it? Through simulations!

Many companies rely on the expert services of Electronic Simulation Consultants to simulate and analyze models of their products to predict how they’ll function under various conditions. This process can include adjusting certain variables to compare how the product might work with small changes.

From cars and airplanes to electronic devices, medical equipment, and more, sophisticated simulations are key to visualizing, testing, and perfecting product designs in a virtual environment before they begin real-world production and testing!

Kỳ vọng và hy sinh

Simulation Consultants are vital in bridging the gap between theoretical designs and practical applications. In fact, their work can save clients millions of dollars by helping them avoid costly design errors. They also help to optimize processes, improve product quality, reduce the need for physical prototypes, and shorten the time it takes for a product to become available for purchase.

Simulation Consultants may face tight deadlines and pressure to deliver reliable, accurate results. Workers in this field sometimes face challenges in explaining complex simulation concepts to non-specialist audiences. As a result, they must be excellent communicators who can speak and present in layman's terms.

The job requires a good deal of continuous learning to keep up with advancements in simulation technology and methods, and that time spent learning isn’t always paid. 

Xu hướng hiện tại

AI and machine learning are increasingly used for simulations, enabling the development of more sophisticated, realistic models. In addition, the integration of virtual and augmented reality technologies is allowing users to interface in exciting new ways.

Another trend is a new twist on an older concept—the executable digital twin (or xDT), which places a digital twin on a chip and then “uses data from a small number of sensors embedded in the physical product to perform real-time simulations using reduced-order models.”

Additional trends include model-based systems engineering, additive manufacturing, generative design, and optimized digital materials…all of which you can read more about here
