Complexity of modern automotive systems is increasing rapidly along with competitive pressures to reduce product development time. Development of these systems requires highly coordinated collaboration between disciplines of engineering and physics within globally distributed organizations, and across a globally distributed industry network of OEM’s, suppliers, research laboratories and universities. For responsive, cost effective and efficient development, these global teams must rely on virtual engineering methods, which include dynamical modeling and simulation (DM&S) involving the integration of models from different companies and disciplines with varying levels of abstraction (fidelity and complexity). Thus, DM&S standards are a critical enabler for an integrated development process needed to establish a seamless and efficient flow of new technologies from research to production.
The Dynamical Modeling and Simulation Technical Committee develops standards for DM&S based on models that mathematically describe an automotive system’s time varying response, behavior and interactions of subsystems and components. These standards include all related processes, methods, performance metrics and analyses. The goal is to make models reusable and simulation results predictable and repeatable across engineering and physics disciplines, application tools, and the industry. Its activities facilitate virtual engineering of automotive systems, resulting in optimized performance, and reduced development time and costs.
The committee reports to the SAE Vehicle Engineering Systems Group. It forms work groups, subcommittees and task forces to develop SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports to establish a framework for collaborative work, which accelerates development and adoption of new technologies.
Participation by OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties is encouraged.
