Webinar: Managing Materials Knowledge at Vitesco Technologies
Managing Materials Knowledge at Vitesco Technologies

To develop future automotive powertrain technologies, Vitesco Technologies relies on the next generation of materials to deliver the required performance, quality, and sustainability. The 'MKB', or Material Knowledge Base, was developed to offer a single source of material information, including experimental data, across the business. This ensures engineers around the business use a consistent, traceable, and accurate source of materials data for design and simulation purposes.

Ansys Material Intelligence for Sustainable Design
Material Intelligence for Sustainable Automotive Design Webinar Series

In this webinar series, our presenters discuss how the challenges around sustainability, supply chain uncertainty, pivoting to new powertrains all have an impact on how engineers need to accurately evaluate and compare different materials and optimize decision-making during the earliest stages of design. This 3-part webinar series has experts from across Ansys covering:

  • The power of an authoritative source of materials for any engineer
  • How to trade-off material performance, cost and sustainability
  • Better materials selection for modern automotive systems
  • How to create a material digital thread, linking into your supply-base
  • Progression towards virtual material testing

White Paper

The Business Case for Material Intelligence

If your organization makes or designs products, it uses materials. Information about these materials is vital, often with multi-million dollar impact. This white paper explores why this is, with materials information management increasingly established as a core engineering technology. Includes extensive case study and return on investment information.



Ansys White Paper

Optimizing Design Optimization Efforts

There are many different components of that design that one might subject to other simulations. Still, each component comprises materials — and reflects design decisions — that could be modified if the outcomes of these stress simulations are outside of acceptable specifications.
