Numerical simulation of manufacturing process is playing an increasingly important role in companies strategy. We have listed the main softwares used in various industries (hot forging, plastic injection moulding, metal casting, additive manufacturing, welding, cold forming process, ...) plus CFD multiphysics codes and also Websites dedicated to process simulation. We hope that this list will be useful.
