Simulation is the key to conceptualising, designing and producing systems that work, first time. Good simulation can now, in many cases, replace prototyping for control systems.

Our experience over 30 years has shown us the value, and the pitfalls, of simulation in the design process. All too often a simulation is treated as a throw-away item, whereas it can now form the basis of the final production system using auto-code generation. In any event, a simulation used for design requires a level of quality and validation equivalent to the final production system. As such, we aim to produce high-quality, validated and fully-supported simulation software for use in all phases of the design and production process.
