Finite element analyses allow to reduce the number of costly hardware prototypes significantly. This saves time and costs. Simulations can offer additional advantages since they provide a look inside the product and learn about details which cannot be observed by means of hardware tests.

Finally, the numerical methods are applied on a computer to determine the solution to boundary value problems. Those are derived by defining the boundary conditions and external loads of a physical problem.
