Modeling and simulation

Increase quality of products and systems at a lower cost

Complex product and systems development must align with the goals and objectives of the project to help ensure successful results. With the high cost of testing, companies cannot afford to build products or variants without validating them prior to building expensive prototypes.

IBM® Rational® modeling and simulation technology can be used in the conceptual design phase, supporting system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities. Simulation facilitates the design of complex physical system models that contain mechanical, electrical, electronic, hydraulic, thermal, control and electric power components. Designers are able to evaluate and optimize the product performance and behavior early on based on the simulation results, helping to improve product quality while controlling costs.
