ANSYS Advantage - Volume IX, Issue 2, 2015


Simulation for the Automotive Industry

Automakers and their supply chain already apply engineering simulation to address some of today’s problems: fuel-efficiency standards, potential warranty issues (with reputation and financial consequences), and the transition to hybrid and electric vehicles (H/EVs). They also embrace big ideas — disruptive technology — like self-driving cars. But the key to success is how the industry leverages the big-picture power of simulation to innovate, fulfill consumer demands, comply with stringent regulatory demands, and meet development time, cost and performance targets.
