Automotive and Transportation

Reduce development cycle time, lower costs and increase the degree of product innovation with ESTECO technology.

ESTECO optimization driven design technology helps cross-functional engineering teams make informed design tradeoffs to reduce vehicle weight, increase fuel efficiency, and ensure optimal levels of safety, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), durability and comfort standards. Our simulation data management technology helps multiple departments and geographically distributed organizations achieve an institutionalized and transparent management of the engineering Multi-Disciplinary Optimization design process, with engineers truly enabled to focus on their work without depending on the schedules of other department experts.
