Where is the value added?
First off, were not dead, we’ve just been busy. Busy doing code-y, behind-the-scenes type stuff that, as much as we tried, we couldn’t make sound exciting enough for a blog post.
On a different note, we’ve been having a few thoughts about our target customers & we think that we have something to offer to existing CFD engineers, particularly CFD consultants or freelancers, that we hadn’t appreciated at the outset.
We think that any appeal to these potential customers will depend on where they think the value is added in the usual “design-mesh-solve-postpro-analyse” cycle? If you’re a CFD consultant/engineer, where do you sit in that cycle & where do you add most value?
We think that the bulk of the value of CFD should come from the analysis/design phases. Couldn’t the remaining phases be automated without detracting from the overall value? Would you see that automation as freeing you up to add more value or taking away some of your treasured meshing time?
What do you think? We would love to know. Leave a comment, tweet us or send us an email - we’re all ears.
