Improving Efficiency and Reducing Risk in CAE Driven Product Development


Computer based methods are mandatory for state of the art, economic as well as efficient development and qualification of products. Use and collaboration of CAE-tools require suited processes to lift existing potentials for an efficient and reliable product development. Performing such tasks for virtual based product development and qualification demands high requirements on personnel, workflows and practices. Warranty and reliability claims can be reduced by applying best practice in CAE-based product development. The principle of "as little as possible but as much as necessary" must be observed. To avoid mistakes and economic loss, CAE-applications require reasonable and reliable workflows. This seminar provides background information on risks of using CAE and gives recommendations of implementing best practice. Maintaining high quality of CAE applications and enhancing efficiency within the context of organizational structures and analysis tasks are the main focus of this seminar. Use of knowledge management builds a bridge between performing an analysis project and improving efficiency. Knowledge management is a basis for efficiency, quality of prognosis and reliability of CAE application. A holistic view onto knowledge management and knowledge based engineering will be given.

Who should attend?

The seminar is aimed at product developers, CAE engineers but also managers and decision makers who are responsible for risk, performance and efficiency of projects supported by numerical analyses, regardless if the computations are done as a service to other companies or for in-house development projects or ordered from a consulting partner.
