FREE: New whitepaper by Ora Research explores vehicle optimization through simulation
Many challenges face vehicle transportation manufacturers as they try to meet performance targets:
- Model Proliferation: in the passenger vehicle industry model proliferation is staggering; with a 40 % increase in the number of models produced in the last 15 years
- Design Aesthetics: consumers demand æ sthetically pleasing products and numerous model options, yet engineering department sizes have remained constant
- Increased Costs for Small Gains: Costs to incrementally improve performance are increasing as even small gains become more challenging to achieve
- Regulatory Pressures: fuel economy and CO2 emissions are advancing performance targets and also making goals more difficult to reach with evolving test procedures involving real world conditions
To address these challenges successfully, a manufacturer must have powerful tools in hand to balance the often competing goals throughout the product development process.
