Bosch has been gaining an extensive experience of parametric optimization and stochastic analysis in virtual product development
Methods of CAE-based optimization and stochastic analysis have become key technologies in parametric simulation. Thus, designs can be already tested and improved under the consideration of scattering properties in the development phase in order to reduce the number of hard ware tests and time to market. Beside parametric CAE models, state-of-the-art algorithms, a high degree of automation and the availability of powerful hardware is a crucial requirement for a successful implementation of parametric optimization in CAE - processes.
In an interview, Roland Schirrmacher (Corporate Sector Research and Advance Engineering at Bosch) defined the requirements for CAE software.
