Have you ever thought, “Man, I love this product, but it would be even better if…”?

Maybe you wish it were more durable, lighter, more effective or even more aesthetically pleasing. The products we use everyday make our lives easier and more efficient; and when they work well-enough, we tend to not think too hard about them.

Then one day, you see a better solution on the shelf and realize the product you have been using did have room for improvement and it makes your daily usage that much better.  While you may not be thinking about these little things very often, we have a team that actually loves to sit around and talk about how we can use science, creativity and virtual prototypes to imagine better ways to build products in ways most people never imagine.

Jacobs Analytics is an innovation team that focuses on imagining and engineering better solutions to improve common products and invent new ones.  We have been hard at work on a few exciting products that we are ready to release in the near future. We have several projects in the works; Grizzly BBQ Smoker, Titanium Mountain Bike Frame, and the Rugged Flasks.

Better Products Through Virtual Prototypes

Our team uses ANSYS as a strategic weapon in the design, development, and testing of products which improves the quality and gets them to market much faster. By using the ANSYS modeling tools, we gain incredible insights into the form and function of anything we are concepting. This is an integral part of our development process because we can quickly decide if an idea is worth pursuing based on the answers the model provides. If it works, awesome. If it doesn’t, we are on to the next big idea! 

Jacobs Analytics is a small startup that utilizes simulation driven product development to create new products. We specialize in reducing costs through simulation driven product development and virtual prototyping. 

We have expertise utilizing CFD and FEA to develop better products at a reduced cost in a shorter period of time, resulting in a higher quality product and more satisfied customers. 

​​At Jacobs Analytics we utilize simulation driven product development and virtual prototyping to solve our toughest design challenges up front in the virtual world before they become an expensive and difficult problems to solve in the physical world. We can reduce the product development and test cycle significantly saving us time and money

We can simulate every aspect of our product’s performance virtually inside a computer before a single part is ever cut. We can drastically cut cost and improve product performance using simulation up front in the design process
