Synthesizing Experience through the Use of Computer Aided Engineering 820080
Road testing, computer-aided data reduction and finite element modeling of existing McPherson Strut systems are discussed as sources of reference data insight and experience. These technical activities are strategically folded together to build a timely decision making capability assisting an engineering organization entering an unfamiliar area of technology.
Emphasis is placed on the strategic planning of these technical tasks and the need to organize results into concise forms which are directly usable by engineering decisionmakers. Several examples of “refined” data presentation are offered.
