Boost Sales and Build Stronger Relationships with the Deployment of Simulation AppsRick Beyerle, Pierre Hatte, GrafTech, USA
Proofs of concept are often the deciding factor in gaining the trust of a customer and generating a sale. But for high-tech companies like GrafTech, a leading producer of carbon and graphite for industrial applications, proofs of concept aren’t necessarily straightforward. With the Application Builder, available in COMSOL Multiphysics®, simulation specialists can convert their work into a simulation app, hiding the complexity of their mathematical model while presenting users with an easy-to-use interface and reporting capabilities. Their app, called SpreaderCalc, enables sales engineers to provide prospective customers with immediate proof-of-concept simulations and performance predictions within hours.
Using a local installation of the COMSOL Server™ product, GrafTech gives colleagues worldwide access to apps over the company’s intranet. The SpreaderCalc app simulates heat transfer in graphite foils used to cool consumer electronics.
