  • Upfront simulation and CAE driven design Reality or long term dream

    This upfront simulation is the key driving force for a paradigm shift in product development and, though the MDO is integrated in the development cycle at JLR, it must now be allowed to drive geometry changes. It therefore needs to be aware of the manufacturing and cost implications of any changes proposed. Without this check, the process would constantly present theoretical geometries – impractical, difficult or costly to manufacture. This paper describes how it is possible to use an MDO for upfront simulation and showcase a process that could lead to a truly CAE driven design.
