Engineer – Automotive OEM

“Before being on site with training licenses, Claytex made sure to understand the level of the expected participant knowledge and experience to ensure the material was pitched at the appropriate level.

The Dymola training was delivered by a very knowledgeable and approachable trainer who took the time to ensure all participants were comfortable with the material content and had a chance to practice and understand the exercises to become familiar with the package.

The workshop element of the training was chosen to be delivered remotely via WebEx on an as required basis which was very helpful once Dymola was being used in a working environment.”

 

Engineer – Systems modelling thermal management consultancy

Despite already having extensive experience of using Dymola, the training was really valuable foe me as it also provided structure throughout on how to set up the packages and sub-packages in a user-friendly way.”

 

Project Manager – Engineering consultancy, renewable energy

“The course was clear for us, it responded to our needs as an introductory course and fulfilled our expectations.

 

Systems Engineering Consultant – Energy Industry, Oil and Gas

“Being new to Modelica and seeing the need to learn quickly I opted for an online course rather than trying to climb the learning curve myself. I found Claytex through the Modelica.org website and contacted them. I was provided with clear information regarding my rather hazy requirements and decided that this would be the best way to go. 

Organising the course timing was a breeze and the training forum was through Teams which worked well. 

My instructor, Alessandro, was very friendly and was amenable to a certain amount of modification to the course content along the way as long as the foundation material was covered and understood first. Alessandro delivered the course with confidence and dealt with my faltering steps and unusual questions easily revealing a depth of understanding of the Modelica (and Dymola package) code.

We covered the Introduction to Dymola and Modelica in two days which looked to be a big ask but Alessandro managed to shepherd me through these two days with ease. We decided that the Introduction to Fluids should be delivered the following week to give my brain some time to assimilate the large chunk of information it had been given. This, I agree, was definitely the right decision, the Fluids course was more complex but required that I understood at least the basic foundations of Modelica

Once again Alessandro delivered the training with ease. Towards the end of this third day the training diverged from where I wanted to be and Alessandro, recognising this, tailored the remaining examples to suit a problem I was preparing to deal with in my line of work. This was a really good decision as this allowed me to see the development of a model that I would develop later.

In summary the decision to purchase this training from Claytex was definitely the correct one. The course has given me the understanding and the confidence to use Modelica to solve problems in my line of work. The course was delivered very professionally and proficiently by someone who clearly knew his stuff.

Thanks Alessandro and Claytex!”

Model Based Development Engineer – Air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions

“I felt the training offered by Claytex was extremely beneficial to me as a modelling engineer. I have already seen the impact of the training through increased speed in model simulations. Additionally, it has helped improve a particular simulation that was quite difficult to simulate at (near zero flow). Additionally, the controls and linearization training helped assist in the establishment of a workflow process for linearizing models in our business unit. Overall, I was very pleased with the training I received. I even recommended future use of Claytex services for new employee training.

I do not have any future recommendations for training that I can think of. The WEBEX and PPT were done extremely well and served as a high quality 1-on-1 training session.”

Engineer – Motorsport Team

“During the three-days training course from Claytex a good overview of the Modelica modeling language and the Claytex libraries was given. Several tutorials were conducted to deepen the theoretical parts of the training. This is a good way of learning as one gets immediately confronted with the actual problem and needs to solve it. As the focus of the training was particularly on the available motorsports libraries, the training gave good insights in how they are built but also how to best use them. Again, different tasks were performed which showed in an effective way how a full vehicle model could be created out of different sub elements like a half or quarter car.

Additionally, useful tips and hints were provided to run a Dymola model in a real-time environment, which met our requests to the training.

The trainer was nice and also flexible to personal needs (referring to the content of the training but also the presentation speed). Any questions were answered in a detailed and understandable way.”

The aim of this training course is to guide the user through the tools and methodology used to debug models and improve and optimise their simulation efficiency. This 2 day course consists of

  • Formal training with a detailed examination of the tools available within Dymola; and
  • Guided application time working on the clients own models

Day 1 is focused on formal training with worked examples to show how the various tools in Dymola can be used to analyse the performance of the model with a view to improving simulation efficiency.

Day 2 aims to work with client specific models and apply what has been learnt with guidance and support to help understand and improve the simulation performance.
