SAE 2014 World Congress & Exhibition

Technical Session Schedule

Thursday, April 10

Virtual Design and Engineering (Part 1 of 2)
(Session Code: IDM301)

Room 116 A  8:00 a.m.

This technical session will showcase the creation and application of various tools that will allow for the design and manufacture of parts, equipment, facilities and tests that eliminate the need for physical part prototyping early in a program. The ability to model various aspects of design, test and manufacturing allows for more accurate, cost effective and faster development and product delivery to market.

Organizers - George Smith, Magna Powertrain; Paul Zalucha, Ford Motor Co.
