Product developers must quickly perform and test numerous design variations in an environment steeped in global competition, complex and changing customer requirements, and short development cycles. Faced with increasing competition, companies have to produce higher performing products and deliver (even more) reliable products in shorter time frames to remain competitive.


Maxime Nicole, ing.
Mechanical Engineer, Consultant

Maxime operates his own consulting firm providing engineering simulation services, along with teaching at the Université de Sherbrooke courses in FEA simulation and 3D CAD modelling. Cumulating over 23 years of experience in mechanical engineering design and simulation, Maxime accomplished over the years numerous mandates in various fields such as rail transport, civil aviation, industrial equipment, medical equipment, heat and acoustics. His experience, attention to detail and quality orientated work make him strong asset in achieving the project's timeline and goals in a fast paced and evolving environment, showing passion in really getting to the bottom of the project's needs.
