  • Development and Applications of Enterprise Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization (EMDO) Systems

    This new EMDO system is a web-based and mobile-enabled technology, which provides a collaborative and distributed execution platform to manage the complexity of growing demands of large-scale vehicle design projects. It has potential to make significant contributions for cross-attribute program developments in term of weight saving, fuel economy increase, meeting or exceeding multiple attribute requirements, as well as reducing product development time and engineering cost. A large-scale vehicle design case study will be used to demonstrate the capabilities and usefulness of the new EMDO system.
