E Tools for Automotive Engineers 2001-01-0769

The Internet is changing the way the automotive industry does business and how automotive suppliers are supporting the automotive OEM's. This paper will discuss some “e-tools” that are currently available for automotive engineers to use, and the direction that future “e-tools” such as these are heading. These “e-tools” or “wizards” compliment traditional CAE system analyses by dissecting the problem into smaller, geometrically and mathematically simpler analyses that can be done quickly using the Internet.
This paper will discuss a few of these “wizards” and where, when and how these tools can be applied to the tasks that automotive product engineers face on a daily basis. Examples will be used to demonstrate the speed, versatility, and functionality of these “wizards”.
