The automotive industry continues to be one of the main beneficiaries of simulation technology, allowing the industry to not only reduce cost, but also meet the demanding requirements of customers, competitors, and regulations. Financial pressures, the competitive landscape, and the increasing complexity of products and requirements are pushing leaders to take CAE technologies to the next level, increasing throughput, improving quality, and accelerating time-to-market.

This 60-minute Webinar examines how providing engineering and product development teams with a digital collaborative platform can help accomplish such a challenge. Simulation workflows are managed at different levels of detail, based on various technical expertise, while maintaining the big picture for system-level concurrent engineering.

The platform also stores, documents, and maintains past and current design simulation data, providing easy access to optimize the next generation of products. Our Webinar will focus on this, as well as the multi-attribute structural analysis.

Topics include:

  • Demonstrating a digital collaborative virtual engineering environment, allowing you to easily manage the structural requirements of vehicle safety.
  • Efficiently using the simulation platform for multidisciplinary design optimization, rapid design concept exploration, and robustness analysis.
  • Leveraging simulation technologies in order to support the product development team's requirement of compressing the product design.
  • Enabling executives, managers, and technology leaders to achieve next-generation productivity advancements from CAE strategy and investments.
