Automotive manufacturer reduces time needed for model identification by 80 % with the help of Simcenter Amesim
The usage of Simcenter Amesim from Siemens is helping Renault research and development with streamlining vehicle development. In order to meet new challenges. Renault R&D has been pioneering system simulation for over 10 years so Simcenter Amesim software from Siemens PLM Software has been widely deployed across the engineering departments. Attributes such as drivability, reliability and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) are optimally assessed and balanced in early design stages. The engine design department in particular fully exploits the software to optimize engine performance and fuel economy. But whereas system simulation is successfully used for engine development, the models outlined by the controls department lack some maturity. Software-in-the-loop, hardware-in-the-loop and model-in-the-loop are some of the tools provided for the development of vehicles.
