CAE-An Approach to a Shorter Product Design Cycle Time 881862
Product design cycle time can be significantly reduced with the utilization of Computer Aided Engineering. (CAE) techniques. Computer modeling and analyses can eliminate portions of the lengthy procedure required by traditionally accepted Product Development Methods.
This paper examines and compares a CAE application to a conventional method in the redesign of a structural component of a heavy-duty truck.
The procedures to achieve design objectives: Modeling through stress analysis iterations and verification of analyses by prototype testing will be addressed together with the impact of such approach on cost and quality of engineering.
