Effective Computer-Aided Engineering in the Automotive Product Development Stages 2001-01-0764
This paper show how the automotive product development process is presented in four distinct stages. The specific type of task, to be presented at each stage, is discussed. Specific CAE (Computer-Aided-Engineering) tasks, such as FEA (Finite Element Analysis), to be used at each stage are discussed. Detailed steps to follow are presented, as well as a check list of tasks are included. The changes and increased effectiveness (developed over 15 years of utilization) are discussed.
