Automatic simulation platform to support product design

    Abstract

    In product design and development there is an ever increasing need for effectiveness. Due to the tightening demands concerning the launch of new products, automatic analysis processes are of great importance. Computational power is increasing continuously, at the same time the hardware costs are decreasing. The variety of commercial as well as open source simulation software is huge. Additionally, easy to use and learn scripting languages are more and more becoming an important part of the whole analysis process. To control the whole product design process within this framework, effective software independent tools are needed. Using the automated analysis process methods is effective when seeking the optimal solution via optimization or parameter variation, for example. Automated analysis process increases reliability by avoidance of human errors. Different analysis types can be linked to the same process, enabling multiphysical solutions. With the automated process also the visualization and documentation of the results is easy. As conclusion, the automatic analysis system presented in this study gives many benefits in the design of existing or completely new products. Modern and flexible software combined with effective hardware and connected together with effective scripting languages makes it possible to develop wholly automatic and reliable calculation processes. These processes can then be combined with optimization loops thus enabling product optimization and control of the inevitable uncertainty in model parameters. As a test case, the automatic analysis system presented in this study is applied to resonance avoidance parametrization of a medium speed IC-engine by optimizing techniques.
