IDEAL GRP supports customers’ innovation process by offering new solutions and services for system design

System simulation

system simulation innovation shift

Innovation is increasingly taking place at the system level. In fact, over 50% of the innovation is taking place at the system level where different technologies converge. The majority of differentiating functions in an automobile – such as adaptive cruise control, lane assist, parking assistant – involves several major subsystems, electronics, software, as well as dynamics and physics of the vehicle. Implementing these functionalities requires a new, systemic approach.

Breakfast awareness - where engineering meets tomorrow

simcenter beating heart

Dear customer, we at IDEAL GRP are delighted to serve you 5 breakfast seminars, with a focus on the Scandinavian market, showcasing Siemens CAE Software simulation tools. Each seminar is a stand-alone session, so no need to attend all to get the insight you want to gain. We trust these sessions will give you the necessary insight to evaluate if these tools can benefit you in your product development process. At the end of each session, we will have a Q&A session, where a Siemens expert together with us will answer your questions. Hope to see you there – online with your breakfast!

Series of 5 FREE seminars – one every week on Friday Morning 08:30

Length 30 minutes utilizing Teams. A technical specialist from Siemens/IDEAL GRP does a 15-minute demonstration, a sales representative from IDEAL GRP does 5 minutes introduction and 10 minutes Q&A session at the end.


  • System Simulation, 5 November, 08.30 - 09.00 CET

    Simcenter System Simulation solutions include tools that can help you from early design until final performance validation and controls calibration.

    • Electrical System Simulation
    • Fluid System Simulation
    • Mechanical System Simulation
    • Model-based Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS)
    • Power Electronics Field Lifetime Testing
    • Propulsion System Simulation
    • ROM Builder
    • Thermal Management System Simulation
    • System simulation power from everywhere
  • Mechanical Simulation, 12 November, 08.30 - 09.00 CET

    Mechanical simulation refers to all 3D computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications that are dictated by the mechanical properties of a product, such as noise and vibration analysis, acoustics, fatigue analysis, multi-body dynamics and crash simulation. The applied technologies are typically based on the relevant physics and may include finite element analysis, boundary element analysis, multi-body dynamics or similar. Engineers primarily use mechanical simulation during the detailed engineering phase, to study and predict how the product will behave in real life, using application-specific models.

  • Computational fluid Dynamics (CFD), 19 November, 08.30 - 09.00 CET

    Simcenter FLOEFD software puts the power of CFD simulation in your hands. Use it directly in NX, Creo, CATIA V5 or Solid Edge in order to explore the full potential of your ideas quickly, without disrupting your design process.

    Understand the impact of changes in the geometry or boundary conditions on the results effortlessly, conduct fast and frequent what-if analysis, and generate insightful reports inside your preferred CAD platform. Built on a foundation of intelligent, fast and accurate technology, Simcenter FLOEFD can help reduce the overall simulation time.

  • Electromagnetics and electronics, 26 November, 08.30 - 09.00 CET
    • E/E Systems Development
    • Embedded software
    • IC Synthesis, Design & Verification
    • PCB & IC Package Design
    • System Modeling & Design Management
  • Physical Testing, 3 December, 08.30 - 09.00 CET

    Simcenter Testing Solutions deliver critical insights to innovate smart products, increase testing productivity and efficiency, maintain utmost quality, enhance team collaboration and engineering flexibility, close the loop with simulation, and ultimately lower cost of ownership.

With market-leading technology and high process competence, Siemens Digital Industries partner IDEAL GRP's CEO, Jaakko Hartikainen, and his employees are well-positioned in the Nordic & Baltic PLM market.

The company is Siemens' largest European partner in this area and Jaakko Hartikainen looks forward to the future. "Everything looks promising," he said. “Corona times have been tough for everyone, but in 2021 we have seen a turnaround and we expect to reach around 20 percent in organic growth during the year and revenues that land on a bit over 20 million euros, if the development goes according to plan. We are more than 100 employees today, but we plan for another 20-30 new additions to our team and have open vacancies currently.”
