What We Can Model

“If it obeys the laws of physics - we can model it.” – Dr Mark Paul Buckingham, MD, Xi Engineering Consultants

Why Simulate?

Accelerate your design process by simulating your system and using the model as a robust test bed for various scenarios, therefore reducing cost and time.

  


 

How We Work With You 

No two projects are the same, and we're all different, however, we find our role with our clients broadly falls into one of the following categories:

flexible R&D team  Solution Partner  Independent Verification


Why Use Xi For Simulation

 

We combine theory and real world experience with a deep understanding of science to produce world class computing simulations.  Our models are all underpinned by the need for both accuracy and efficiency and we take great pride in delivering customs solutions and software to our clients (that they can then use themselves if they wish). We really are a multidisciplinary team that loves a challenge.

 

Benefits of Engineering Simulation:

  • Length of development time – 9 x reduction
  • Overall Product cost – 4 x reduction
  • Warranty Costs – 89% more likely to decrease
  • Number of change orders after release to manufacturing – x2.5 more likely to decrease
  • Percent successful new product introduction rate (NPR) 67% more likely to achieve
