Structural Optimization Simulation Studies in New Product Development 2007-01-4263

In ever increasing demand to reduce the product cost and to increase the product durability and reliability, the use of simulation tools for identifying the optimum structural load paths for a given component is crucial. Translating these structural load paths into light weight components that are easy to manufacture is also very important. In this paper, the structural optimization methodology in new product development process was discussed. Application of structural optimization methodology and some strategies to reduce overall product cost and weight were also presented with structural optimization analysis case studies.
