Developing better products faster & at reduced costs...

… given economic, ecological & technological challenges force companies to take convenient measures to achieve both a higher productivity and a better quality of their products.

With this respect the evolution Open Source Simulation Project ("eOSSP") has been designed to initiate a radical change towards simulation based product development, and to be a key driver for developing better products faster and at reduced costs, across all industries.

The project builds on the highly advanced Simulation Software evolution-fea® – which was born out of the AK32 Task Force 'Engine Simulation' of the German car makers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche & VW recently – and on an Open Source Business Model.

Open sourcing the evolution-fea® Code means that you are given the complete source code. And, the code does not have a use-by-date or sunset clause. You can use it now and forever, and you have the entire open source community provide ongoing development and support.
