Automating Material and Manufacturing Cost Estimation at the Concept Phase Using Intelligent Materials Selection
When making decisions between different design concepts, you must consider performance, price and the environment. This difficult task often requires input from many experts who must make a hard decision at the end of the project. Making changes later in the design process can be very costly and time-consuming, so any tool that can help early in the design phase has a massive impact on development projects.
In this webinar, we demonstrate how Ansys GRANTA Selector can help make these choices in a more rational way, saving time and money for both material selection and production methods. Flanders Make, a specialist research center, has spent 3 years automating this process from CAD to extend the benefits of part cost estimation from a component to a system level. The process also determines the total cost for different design concepts in a uniform and comparable way.
Ansys Elite Partner Infinite Simulation Systems supported the production of this webinar.
What you will learn:
- How to innovate through material selection and reduce component cost
- How to quickly confirm and validate your material selection using a reliable, impartial data set
- How to automate this process at the CAD stage for full cost estimation of components and system
