PREVIEW (Predictive Environment for the Visualization of Electromechanical Virtual Validation) is a premium software package designed to reduce product costs and development time for electromechanical systems. As a physics-based modeling-and-simulation platform, the value of such a tool ultimately lies in its ability to complete analysis and test iterations virtually, thus greatly reducing time expended and money spent. PREVIEW enables PCB and PCA designers and analysts to assess design shortcomings based on virtual analysis prior to production. This toolkit includes a platform for coordinating 1) system visualization, 2) physics-based analysis capabilities, and 3) evaluation of system and component data, as well as external analysis results, allowing users to test and evaluate all aspects of the design in a single intuitive 3-D virtual environment. PREVIEW will be useful not just to highly technical analysts, but more importantly to program managers and hardware engineers.
