In Getting More with Self-Service, Chief Customer Officer of The Service Council Sumair Dutta provides customer service executives with the information they need to:
• Organize content plans to facilitate user-based discovery.
• Retain consistent messaging across multichannel service environments.
• Develop an internal culture to support self-service options.
Download the whitepaper and learn how to increase customer engagement—at a lower cost—through self-service.
Want to rein in support costs without sacrificing service quality and customer satisfaction? You can. New social business solutions eliminate the traditional service trade-offs, providing an optimal combination of assisted peer-to-peer support communities, call deflection, selective escalation and productivity-enhancing collaboration. The result? Reduced call volume and faster resolution times, happier customers and lower costs.
The most problematic scenario engineers encounter when analyzing large deformation
solutions using the finite element method is convergence issues due to mesh distortion. This
is typical, for example, during simulation of elastomeric sealing or metal forming applications.
Complex nonlinearities due to mechanical and/or thermal behavior arise in such cases from
inherent material properties, geometric changes and establishment or separation of contact
interfaces. The manual rezoning feature which was released in ANSYS 10.0 gave analysts a
highly customizable, albeit labor-intensive, workflow to change and repair the mesh whenever
needed after an unconverged solution. However, since the release of ANSYS 15.0, the latest
“NonLinear ADaptivity” (NLAD) feature and accompanying enhancements are as automatic as
one can imagine for repairing mesh distortion, overcoming convergence difficulties, refining
the mesh to capture local phenomenon and achieving the “true” design solution.
