Engineering methods and processes are shifting to a new paradigm. Engineering departments cannot rely only on handcraft-based process and employees’ goodwill to improve and maintain product development quality. The reason is clear: the number of requirements and demand for customizations from the market are huge and bring engineering departments to work on a large number of simulation models that can’t be managed without a streamlined process. Consequently, new organizations with clearly defined processes and roles are being established to provide a “simulation factory.”
However, in the heavy equipment industry nowadays, up to 80% of engineering efforts can be spent on the development of models while only 20% on results analysis. To leverage simulation outputs value for product design, companies aim to reuse and share models to expand usage of simulation to non-experts (design engineers, product planning, test engineers, pre-calibration engineers, sales engineers…). By transitioning to a consistent system simulation process and tools across the organization, better engineering insight is achievable by inverting the previous ratio and refocusing effort on engineering analysis.
