Dolf Broekaart

Sales Director Simulation, TECHNIA/SIMULEON

Dolf has 11 years of experience of guiding customers to the right simulation solutions, and has been with TECHNIA/SIMULEON since 2012. 

Using entry level simulation across engineering departments has already shown its benefits for multiple businesses for many years. As entry level simulation isn’t the final destination, these benefits can even be more improved by carefully extending the scope of analysis carried out with high-end Simulation.

Dolf will show you the potential benefits delivered with deploying high-end simulation for multiple businesses in various industries. Besides these benefits, some pitfalls will be discussed as well, and we’ll talk about how we are there to help you during that journey. And for those who are not interested in buying software, we will also discuss how to gain these advantages with the use of our Simulation Consultancy Services.

By attending this presentation, you will understand the potential of introducing High-End Simulation across your Engineering Department.
