Virtual Performance Solution

ESI’s flagship software is a unique solution allowing manufacturers to face emerging design challenges — including those related to lightweight, green and autonomous vehicles — while avoiding over-engineering. It enables design and simulation engineers to test rapidly their innovations on virtual prototypes, rather than real ones. Virtual Performance Solution (VPS) also offers a distinctive approach, allowing the virtual testing of product performance across multiple domains using a single core model.

Virtual Performance Solution originated from the first ever crash simulation software, PAM-CRASH, and was developed thanks to close collaboration between ESI and leading automotive OEMs. Learn more about Structural Crash, Occupant Safety, NVH & Interior Acoustics, Water Flow and other applications.
