How OEMs are Now Able to Optimize Durability and Lifetime of Systems and Components

As we continue to explore the concept of Durability (or, “Lifetime”), we have examined how advanced OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers are using new technologies to reliably predict the durability of their parts, components, systems and vehicles. Now that we know lifetime is predictable, the question turns...

How to Integrate Simulation with Statistical Analysis to Better Predict Durability

Advanced OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers have for years been relying on statistical analysis to predict the likelihood or probability of a component’s failure under specific driving conditions. But while statistical databases do a great job of recording and cataloguing past performance based on...

OEMs Emphasize — and Increasingly Measure — Durability to Drive ROI

OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers worldwide are dedicating greater emphasis, personnel teams, resources and even urgency to not only understand but to predict the durability of their vehicles and/or components over their respective lifetimes. Though it might seem obvious, it’s one thing to know how your...

Why Using Simulation to Front Load Design Decisions Gives You the Competitive Advantage

The concept of “front loading” is not entirely new to automotive manufacturers, who are becoming increasingly adept at eliminating cost, materials, time and waste from the design process. The industry is at the early-adoption stage of manufacturers (in automotive and other sectors) embracing new,...
