Simulation as an interdisciplinary, integrated development tool was established in order to better control the complexity of modern products and projects. This involves the closed modeling of physical and logical features of products to be developed. The simulation serves to examine and optimize the product model in terms of the required features. This ultimately creates better products with considerably shorter development times and with fewer real prototypes and testing outlay.
DYMOLA and Modelica are industry standards for the holistic model-based simulation of physical systems of all disciplines such as mechanics, electrical engineering and electronics, thermodynamics, hydraulics, pneumatics, control engineering and process technology.
