SDC Verifier is developing software that helps engineers verify their designs according to rules and regulations. Currently, they have an independent SDC Verifier interface for simulation, structural verification according to standards, reporting, and all the necessary pre- and post-processing actions. Also, SDC has extensions like SDC for FemapSDC for Ansys, and SDC for Simcenter, which bring this functionality to traditional FEA tools. Besides this, the company is publishing some free apps and handy tools on our website. They are helping to simplify engineering tasks and are worth using to simplify the life of an engineer.

Interview with Oleg Ishchuk, COO at SDC Verifier.

E.E: Which are the most sold products / solutions?

Oleg Ishchuk:We started with SDC for Femap and SDC for Ansys in 2010. Since then, we have acquired many customers worldwide on all continents in various industries with these products. There are hundreds of use cases where SDC Verifier software has helped to calculate all parameters precisely in complex projects and choose the best optimization decisions, saving engineers time on tedious tasks.

E.E: What are clients looking for when they want to buy products / solutions from your range?

O.I: The main Clients’ driver when buying SDC Verifier software is the possibility to verify their design to understand whether their structure and design are OK or not, according to rules and regulations. That is the core feature that our customers are looking for.

 The second factor I would name is engineering automation, automation of whatever processes, documentation, loading combinations, understanding the behaviour of your model, applying complex loads, and automatic routines. So, the two main drivers are engineering standards and automation for engineers.

E.E: On which aspects should clients focus when deciding to buy a product / solution?

O.I: Clients should see how they are solving their problems and analyzing their designs now and are happy with this. Do they feel the amount of time for the project completion is sustainable? Do they think that their team’s workload is sustainable, and can it be improved, and will their company benefit from this? So, suppose they see there is too much routine, the calculation is ineffective, and they don’t have answers to their questions about their products. In that case, they should seek automation and an automatic verification tool, which SDC Verifier is ultimately discovering and solving.

E.E: Tell us a short buying guide for clients who want to purchase your products / solutions?

O.I: That’s a great question. The shortest way is to visit our website. Fill in and submit the form with contact details at the website to download the software. There is a guide showing how to request a trial license. So, either use the license generator to request a license automatically or contact us via the contact details on the website. We are providing a 14-day evaluation license with full support, and our team is helping the customers build the use case, justify the purchase, and understand the benefits. Then you can ask us for a quote, we have different levels of the software, and we are delivering a competitive price for sure. After we receive the signed quote or purchase order, we generate a license within a day or, during our regular working hours – within an hour.

E.E: What should clients know when they plan to upgrade their existing solutions?

O.I: Clients should understand if the way they are working now is effective and they are happy with this. Do they have repetitive routines they can avoid? So, if they are struggling with their current solutions, such as a hand calculation, a spreadsheet, or any other toolkits, in that case, we are delivering an all-in-one solution that helps to resolve code-checking and automation problems. If they think that their current process is ineffective and they don’t get answers to their questions, SDC Verifier is the tool to go for.

E.E: Why do clients choose your products / solutions over other existing on the market?

O.I: First and foremost, SDC Verifier is an all-in-one solution. Whether you use any FEA design or analysis software or don’t have any FEA tool, SDC Verifier is both design, simulation, finite element analysis, verification, optimization, and automatic documentation. So, it is all-in-one, and there is no need to swap between different solutions, products, and interfaces. That’s the core value, and that is why it is better than the others, which might require integration within different products, saving a lot of manual or semi-manual labor and time-consuming and ineffective routines.

E.E: What sets your products / solutions apart? What innovative / special features do they have?

O.I: I would say that a beneficial and innovative unique feature of SDC Verifier is its template-based concept, so it is perfect for repetitive routines. It is ideal for tracking design change updates and saves time on engineering projects, especially closer to the deadline. 

Secondly, we have solutions that help engineers pick the best design decision based on the requirements of the standards and rely on the software instead of guessing the accurate result for their designs.

E.E: Tell us some tips & tricks that clients can use when searching to buy your products / solutions?

 O.I: If somebody is searching to buy SDC Verifier products, it is worth looking at our video content on YouTube or our website where we have plenty of webinar recordings, educational materials. If somebody is looking for tips and tricks, there are also dedicated videos. 

And secondly, we are having very intuitive and explanatory step-by-step tutorials explaining software in the smallest details to help make use of the software easily from the very beginning.

And the third thing is that during the trial period, it is worth setting up a call with our support team to go through your struggles and to resolve your doubts by getting a detailed answer from our experienced structural engineers for free. 

E.E: What products / solutions are you going to launch next year?

O.I: We have launched a product that is powered by Simcenter Nastran and allows engineers to do everything in one interface, and the following year it will go to market. It is a good time for those who have not done any simulation or any finite element analysis before to enter this broad market of engineering simulation with the FEA method to know their designs better and to become better engineers.
