What is Sustainability?
The word “sustainability” can bring to mind many different aspects for the majority of people. You may consider wind farms, recycling, electric vehicles, or planting trees — but it is truly all that and more. Sustainability encompasses everything necessary to meet our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. To sum it up: Sustainability is not just about maintaining our natural resources and managing environmental issues; it’s about sustaining humanity.
KETIV is committed to being a leader in sustainable product design and product development practices, and providing the support American manufacturers need to do the same. That’s a monumental undertaking, but it’s something simulation software helps make possible across the product life cycle by speeding time to the consumer market, ensuring resources are used efficiently, reducing product footprints, and saving costs in the product development process.
8 Reasons to Start Simulating Today
Learn the value and unlock the mystery of product design, optimized through simulation. This guide will walk you through what’s possible, and help you down the path to answer the questions that keep your designers and engineers up at night:
- Will these components break down under certain conditions?
- Can the product handle fluid pressure?
- How do the different components interact and perform together?
- Will it survive a fall?
- Can we make the product lighter, stronger, or more durable?
How Simulation Supports Sustainability
Simulation is essential to showing precisely how products will work, enabling innovators to move confidently from new ideas to reality at the pace our planet needs now. Simulation supports sustainable design, reducing the environmental impact of physical prototyping in product development. It helps engineering teams understand how to conserve resources and lower emissions when improving existing products.
One example of this sustainable development is Ansys simulation software working to help power zero-carbon jet fuel emissions. While significant advances have been made in the chemistry and production of such fuels, scaling up manufacturing capabilities to provide cost-competitive, drop-in jet fuels for the global fleet to completely eliminate emissions has been a challenge.
Reaching beyond the design and development stage, simulation also shows how companies can follow more efficient practices to make the manufacturing process, operations, and end-of-life processes more environmentally responsible. Like any massive challenge, progress toward sustainability goals is easier to make and track by breaking it into more manageable parts.
KETIV’s Commitment to Sustainability
At KETIV, we are working to advance our environmental, social, and government (ESG) objectives, as well as that of our customers. By supporting them in achieving their sustainable business goals via simulation software and technologies that digitally transform their businesses, we can deliver long-term value for our business and our communities, while reducing the environmental footprint.
