Likelihood to Recommend

HyperWorks

Engineering firms and companies with needs for multiple disciplines of analysis capabilities on a regular basis will benefit from HyperWorks. Companies with short term engineering needs (less than 6 months) or who only need a particular analysis/simulation discipline may be better off using a consultant (who likely uses HyperWorks).

Siemens NX

How many departments will be using the product?How does each department or area within any given company work with or rely on each other? You have to know or be able to create a streamlined approach to doing work for the PLM software to really work. The software adds a lot of necessary structure.

Pros

HyperWorks

  • All-inclusive software suite
  • Wide breadth of capabilities and custom scripting
  • Highly efficient and scalable solvers/computation
Billy Wight | TrustRadius Reviewer

Siemens NX

  • Seamless interaction across multiple departments.
  • The software allows you to create a very high level of control and organization within your engineering staff. This reduces the companies mistakes and maximizes productivity.
  • The software makes it very easy to track your product through every phase of the production cycle.

Cons

HyperWorks

  • User interface is improving, but not always intuitive; varies across tools
  • Steep learning curve
  • Cost may be out of reach for some, but relatively inexpensive if you need all the tools it includes (vs. paying for each tool individually)

Siemens NX

  • Speaking from experience with NX, each revision seems to be focused more on the layout of icons as compared to the functionality of the features.
  • Features within NX that have been used for years are no longer being used as a result of new revisions. Doesn't make a lot of sense to the end user. It would be nice to know what the reason is on a much larger scale (ie large customer recommendation?)

Alternatives Considered

HyperWorks

HyperWorks is far more capable than SOLIDWORKS Simulation offering more simulation solutions for more accurate analysis. The solvers are also more efficient so you get results faster and reduce time to market.

Return on Investment

HyperWorks

  • An all in one solution keeps costs down if you need multiple analysis capabilities (FEA, CFD, MBD, etc.)
  • Analysis work supports our other engineering/design work we wouldn't otherwise receive
  • Fast and efficient solvers leads to higher throughput
Billy Wight | TrustRadius Reviewer

Siemens NX

  • Do not knowtotal investment cost, but there have been several projects where Siemens PLM software has both produced a better product and maximized production.
  • NX CAM has saved our machining centers thousands of hours and allows direct contact between the designers and the machine programmers.
