Mazda Motor Corporation develops vehicles efficiently by incorporating model-based computer-aided engineering (CAE). Toyo Advanced Technologies, a spinoff of Mazda, engineers, manufactures and supplies oil pumps for automatic transmissions mounted in automobiles equipped with Mazda’s SKYACTIV technologies, which increase fuel efficiency and engine output. The company also produces fuel rails, which transfer fuel to each cylinder of an engine. To survive in the auto parts industry, where competition is heating up globally, a high-performance product must be developed quickly to meet clients’ schedules and requirements. To perform analyses rapidly and affordably, Toyo Advanced Technologies engineers used Ansys Fluent via a cloud service for model-based CAE, instead of installing a high-performance computing (HPC) system in their own facility.
