Sierra Vista Technology, LLC is dedicated to building specialty software for use in
designing engineering products and developing manufacturing processes. A software product can be
economically constructed to solve a unique design problem or to design a manufacturing process. The software can
then be effectively maintained and modified. Tailored nonlinear solution algorithms, special material models and boundary conditions can be programmed to satisfy customer requirements. Examples of specialty products
include metal heat treatment, welding, forging, glass to metal seals, and solder fatigue.
Many products and manufacturing processes are now designed with large general
purpose finite element programs. Often these programs do not have the specific capabilities needed to effectively solve the problem and large software companies cannot respond in a timely manor to add flexibility to
their product. Also, many large commercial products rely on one nonlinear solution algorithm which may not be the best choice for a particular application. Adding customization to such general purpose programs
is expensive, a slow process and difficult to maintain.
Sierra Vista Technology, LLC constructs software with greater quality at a lower
license cost with a coupled mechanics object oriented mechanics library. The program is capable of solving the unique problem with less computer resources than a general purpose code. A graphical user
interface can easily be modified to support a new product and faster solutions are available with the use of parallel processing.
