From transmission component detailed design to integration – Webinar

Tranmission_Design_shoes_small.jpgCould we ever imagine that a supplier of laces provides too short and wide bootlaces to his client, a shoe manufacturer? Could we ever imagine that there is no interaction between them allowing upstream integration of the component to the final product? The ultimate goal is to provide high quality, durable and solid footwear for the end user, without wasting time and money in the production of the product designing right first time the component to be integrated into the final. So, no we

cannot imagine this scenario.

And this is the same for even more complex products such as transmission. The interaction between suppliers and OEMs at the design stage is crucial to put best-in-class product in the market. Indeed, how can the supplier really evaluate the performance of its component without evaluating its behavior in the vehicle? In the opposite way, how can the OEM evaluate accurately the performance and the behavior of the whole vehicle without a detailed model of the components?

Depending on the point of view of the user you are taking (supplier or OEM?), the engineering challenges are not the same. Nevertheless, it is crucial to ensure the best performance evaluation of your system at the early stage of the design. And, the easy exchange of data is a real asset to save money and time on the development cycle.

The use of system simulation can be the critical answer to enable you to realize from the finest transmission component detailed design to vehicle integration. Watching this 50-minute webinar will give you, whether you are supplier or OEMs, a good overview of how our system simulation solution, Simcenter Amesim, helps you predicting transmissions systems performance and meet fuel economy, drivability and NVH objectives.
