  • Supports design reviews to validate the quality and completeness of work packages.
  • Perform advanced structural analysis and verification of designs, ensuring their mechanical strength and integrity under various loads and operating conditions.
  • Perform static, dynamic, and thermal analysis to ensure compliance with industry standards and regulatory requirements.
