SmartPulley: Web-based Design Support System for Automotive Steel Pulley 2006-01-0159

Many companies in mechanical engineering fields have accumulated information of design and manufacturing. The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Product Data Management (PDM) systems help information gathering and data managing. However, these systems are not flexible to support suitable functionality for specific product because these systems deal with entire enterprise resources. To cope with this issue, a web-based design support system was constructed for the design process of automotive steel pulley. This system provided 1) search service for part design with key word and classification map, and 2) estimation service of maximum stress and manufacturing cost. Each service was customized for the design process of steel pulley. These services reduced design time by reducing iterative Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) jobs for stress analysis and by enhancing search for existing data of steel pulley.
