Industry

With more sophisticated and complex engineering products, and shorter development timescales, competition within global industry is fierce. Successful products require high optimization to perform well demanding lower raw material costs, better performance, smaller size and greater efficiency. Opera offers flexibility and ease of change. By changing design parameters Opera makes it simple to take a “What-if?” approach and explore behaviour once a design model of a new product concept has been created. These changes can target every aspect of a design saving man-hours in finding the optimal answers to difficult questions.

Maximise the productivity of your design team by allowing them time to concentrate on what you need most – an innovative, class-leading, reliable product. See below for more information on how Opera is used in different industries.
