“Systematic Deployment of Simulation at an R&D Center: Evolution of Automotive Sub-System Simulation at Valeo,” is the subject of a free-of-charge webcast from SAE International. The webcast will feature the director and engineering manager from the Valeo India R&D Center who will discuss best practices that were developed to systematically deploy and leverage simulation across different product groups.
Engineering simulation is a core component of the Valeo India R&D Center, which develops transmission systems, electrical systems, driver assistance systems, wiper systems and thermal systems.
The 60-minute webcast begins at 9 a.m. (U.S. EST) on Thursday, Sept. 11.
When the center opened nine years ago, simulation was only used for structural analysis of transmission systems. The benefits derived from such simulation were subsequently extended by systematically deploying simulation for fluids analysis, such as for the optimization of torque converters. Step-by-step simulation was expanded for all other product groups, even those with widely divergent engineering needs. The center used numerous best practices to cross-train engineers, improve efficiency, and capitalize on investments in simulation tools to expand the benefits of simulation across the organization. These included using a single, widely applicable simulation software platform, expanding high-performance computing facilities, standardizing on solvers, maintaining lessons-learned cards, developing simulation standards, and deploying standard methods of evaluating competencies. The benefits of using simulation are now being reaped throughout the R&D center. The speakers will present these best practices, illustrated by numerous examples of automotive sub-system simulation.
Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the speakers during the program's live Q&A segment.
Speakers will include:
The Webcast is sponsored by ANSYS and hosted by SAE International.
Moderator will be Lisa Arrigo, Custom Electronic Products Editor, SAE International.
