Integrated Design, Modeling and Simulation for Smarter Body Engineering Leads to a Successful Vehicle Launch

An automotive executive once told me no one would ever look at…

In conclusion, the historical way of working with multiple groups using multiple, disconnected tools cannot easily survive the next wave of innovation and competitive pressure.  The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides these key values to address the challenges:

  • A single master-model for design, simulation and manufacturing
  • Automated, CAD-associative simulation model building providing digital continuity to quickly address design changes and vehicle variants
  • Integrated fastener and mesh management for different attribute simulations
  • Collaborative engineering for design exploration and multi-disciplinary optimization
  • Requirements-driven simulation via dashboards

As companies invest more in vehicle electrification and autonomous driving, crash, durability and NVH, departments need to be more productive with fewer resources.   While excellent structural performance is necessary, it is no longer sufficient.  The challenge now is to achieve superior performance and compliance for all structural attributes with minimal cost.  DS is investing along with our customers to support these important transformations.
