WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

P&G has been using Aspherix simulation software technology for the past eight years for modeling particulate processes via Discrete Element Method (DEM).

Dr. Christopher Stoltz

Procter & Gamble

Discrete Element Modelling is an essential tool for planetary exploration as well as preparation and development of future missions. DLR collaborates with DCS since more than ten years and in several projects covering planets like Mars as well as small bodies like asteroids.
We enjoy DCS’s exceptionally high degree of professionality and enthusiasm when it comes to DE modelling. DCS takes the challenge to push DEM to new extraterrestrial applications.

Dr. Marco Scharringhausen

DLR | German Aerospace Center

We profit from close collaboration with DCS Computing GmbH on the development of an innovative simulation model that helps us advance in computational process engineering. We appreciate their capacious expert knowledge and strong technical support.

Dr. Markus Klinsmann

Robert Bosch GmbH

Competences, technologies and excellent services of DCS Computing offers us tailor made simulation capabilities to study complex phenomena in process engineering and plastics industries.
The value creation applying DCS solutions is proven in several projects throughout the years of cooperation.

Dr. Harald Herbst

Borealis Polyolefine GmbH

We are looking forward to the new tool Aspherix which will come out with customer support.
We have found the team at DCS Computing to be very professional in delivering the project outcomes in the most effective way. We highly recommend DCS computing for simulation-based Engineering projects.

Dr. Shahriar Amini

SINTEF

With DEM being a relatively new and emerging method (compared e.g. to the Finite Element Method), it was very important for us to collaborate with a highly knowledgeable, reliable but also responsive software partner.
We are pleased to say that DCS Computing has been living up to those expectations for years and are looking forward to more exiting projects together in the future.

Josef Bruckner

PÖTTINGER Landtechnik GmbH

ESCO has utilized DCS’ DEM technology to simulate mining excavation since 2013 for products such as hydraulic face shovels, excavators, draglines and rippers. DCS’ DEM technology and DCS expert support has greatly accelerated ESCO’s capability and project completion rate.
DCS responsiveness and efficiency has exceeded expectations, and is an excellent value.

Ray J. Morris

Weir ESCO

Our cooperation with DCS since 2008 has raised enormous synergies and has formed the core values of my research group. My research team and my teaching efforts greatly benefit from the interaction with DCS, as well as their simulation tools. Together with them, we will bring DEM to a new level!
