Early adoption will help to find error early but physical testing doesn’t provide enough inside into product failure. It finds weakest link in the chain but doen’s identify latest issue with next iteration.Using early design sim will help in ultimately reduced number of physical prototype if your designs and concepts are virtually tested.While building concept only you can do virtual simulation by reusing the knowledge
Early to mkt with less cost and better qaulity
In terms of alternatives and timeWith simulation you get fast evaluation of design alternatives and you can do a lot of iterations quickly. It helps you really explore more of the design space.
5 Compelling Reasons For Someone To Invest In CAE
5 Compelling Reasons forSomeone to invest in CAE Getting It Right the First Time1 4 52 3 Presented by: Hiral Gohel Enterprise Business Representative
Agenda Overview and issues with traditional process Longer time to market Poor Quality Higher number of change orders Challenges and Response in product development Top reasons to invest in CAE 1. Getting it right first time 2. Increased Market Share 3. Reduced cost 4. Shorter Time to Market 5. Improved Productivity
Overview and issues withtraditional Process Make, Break and try again Physical Prototype based designing Issues Increasing product complexity Increasing Market complexity Decreasing Time to Market Late change order detection
1 Getting it right first time Companies can’t afford wrong products->cost, reputation,Marketing, warranty Expenses and rework in plant Early adoption of CAE Reducing total no. of physical prototype Concept will go for simulation and verification Virtual prototyping will be also used for documentation Simulation SimulationDrives Concept Drives Design
2 Increased Market Share using Early Adoption of CAE Value Added Engineering- Adding value to Customer by optimization Earlier break even point Source: AberdeenGroup, October 2006
3 Decreased cost Best in class manufacturers Average 1.6 fewer prototypes than other Companies Most complex products get to market 158 days earlier with $1,900,000 fewer development costs Simplest products get to market 21 days earlier with $12,000 fewer product development costs
4 Shortened Time to Market Early adoption of CAE during Design Phase itself Meeting compliance requirement early Reduced number of physical prototype Familiar Environment for users Reducing engineering Man Hours Educating the user Knowledge reuse
5 Improved Productivity Best in Class - access to simulation capabilities within the CAD Application (Familiar Environment) -> less time to learn Faster Innovation with more alternatives over competition Keep material costs in check - eliminating wasteful overdesign How Much Will Your Company Save with Upfront CFD? Six Projects PA-> can save $107,100 annuallyPrototyping & Testing Before CFDesign After CFDesign ImprovementTime per project 40 days 12 days 71 %Expense per project $27000 $9450 65%
Conclusion: Reasons to invest in CAE Take a recent project of any company andAnalyze the time and expense incurred to thatparticular project. How many rounds of testing? How much did each round cost? How much did each round cost? How much would you save if your team eliminateseven a single round of testing on every projectover 12 months?
