How to reduce overdesign while still meeting shorter manufacturing design cycles.

popularity

Today, manufacturing product design cycles need to get shorter and shorter as either new or increased numbers of products get to the market faster. In the automotive industry for example, with either facelifts to existing car models, or the next generation of the model appearing almost every 3-4 years, and an increasing number of new models appearing on the market, the demand on engineering design centers is to produce the same or higher quality products in a shorter time. With engineering simulation technology, increasing product complexity can be designed much closer to its limits and therefore overdesign can be reduced – but it has a knock-on effect of more and more requests for Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) simulations by stretched simulation experts.
