Computer Aided Technology Partners with IMPACT Engineering Solutions to provide Engineers with Unmatched SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software Training Curriculum

Buffalo Grove, IL, April 14, 2004, Computer Aided Technology, Inc. (CATI), has announced that they have partnered with IMPACT Engineering Solutions to bring an exclusive training opportunity to SOLIDWORKS Simulation Users. This curriculum raises the bar on SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software training by responding to the needs of the growing number of engineers and designers who have realized not only the importance of using analysis to give their products a competitive edge, but also that they need to hit the ground running when they get back from basic training.

The new SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software curriculum taps into over a decade of internationally acclaimed analysis education that cannot be offered by any other resource in the area. By partnering with IMPACT, CATI can now offer a program that teaches new users the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software methodology and provides exclusive insights into making FEA successful in the product design process.

“This training opportunity fits perfectly into our curriculum,” comments Robert Konczal, CTO, CATI. “For our clients to keep a leadership position in their industry, they demand more from us than a typical value-added reseller. This is another leading indicator that CATI and Impact Engineering are constantly meeting this challenge of leading-not following!”

“We are excited to offer this 3-day SOLIDWORKS Simulation to CATI’s Customers,” comments Mark Peters, President, IMPACT Engineering Solutions. “IMPACT Analysis Services brings extensive analysis expertise to CATI Customers that cannot be matched by any other reseller.”

The 3-day SOLIDWORKS Simulation Curriculum includes the core SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software training material, plus a third day of instruction (FEA in the Design Environment) that ties the tool to the day-to-day engineering challenges that users will face when they get back to their desks.

Topics include :

  • The Role of Simulation in the Product Development Process

  • Finite Element Analysis Methodology

  • Case Studies

  • Failure Analysis and Prediction

  • Introduction to Dynamic & Nonlinear Analysis

  • SOLIDWORKS Modeling for More Efficient SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software Analysis
