Virtual Engineering

Value Added Engineering Service: Predictive R&D Process as Part of the Virtual Development

Conception of the Virtual Engineering / (c) Laschet Consulting


These are the advantages of the virtual development process („VIRTUAL ENGINEERING“).

  • faster and high-quality development process and lower R&D costs
  • early detection of critical and weak points or technical restrictions
  • significant quality improvement
  • achievement of fundamental know how before finishing the product development (prediction of technical characteristics); systemizing the development process
  • comparison of various engineering solutions and evaluation of different configurations; enabling alternative development steps in good time in advance
  • minimizing the test periods and commissioning procedure (reducing the test series while improving the test quality)
  • efficient team work when providing digital CAE models and the corresponding results
  • better understanding of acquired experiences (measurements, field testings, calculations, observations and subjective evaluation); objective access to the results
  • generating special evaluation functions for an objective grading of the system behavior (OSE = Objective System Evaluation)
  • reasonable basis for strategic decisions in the product development process
  • application of powerful simulation tools while keeping the model complexity limited
    („Learning by experience from the past, secure planning for future projects“)

Rotordynamic Analysis of a Compressor Drive Shaft / (c) RBTS


An impor­tant prin­ciple of our work:  It is not pri­mari­ly about the ad­ver­tis­ing effective and color­ful presen­tation of R&D efforts in im­pressive 3D pre­sen­ta­tions. In the first step, we al­ways pre­fer struc­tur­ed de­ve­lop­ment planning with power­ful simu­lation tools as aids. This in­volves an engi­neer­ing eva­luation and prac­tical assess­ment of the re­sults with regard to the spe­cified pro­duct develop­ment and pro­duct opti­mization. 3D com­puter mo­dels are certain­ly use­ful, but they do not re­place the main work of the de­ve­lop­ment engi­neer.


Use the engineering services by Laschet Consulting to create and realize your own virtual engineering environment: this is the so-called „Virtual Engineering On Demand“.

We would like to get into contact with you. Ask for a non-binding customer presentation realized by an online meeting. In many cases we take the opportunity to involve further external partners in such projects (like design and development engineering offices or measurement service providers).
