pdpProduct Development Process Steps

Computer-aided engineering (CAE) is the broad usage of computer software to aid in engineering analysis tasks. CAE has now become a standard engineering tools in the Product Development Processes, begin from product design step till tool design. The wide range usage of CAE includes Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Multibody dynamics (MBD), and optimization,

CAE is used to reduce product development cost and time while improving the safety, comfort, and durability of the product. The predictive capability of CAE tools has progressed to the point where much of the design verification is now done using computer simulations rather than physical prototype testing. CAE dependability is based upon all proper assumptions as inputs and must identify critical inputs. Even though there have been many advances in CAE, and it is widely used in the engineering field, physical testing is still used as a final confirmation for subsystems because CAE cannot predict all variables in complex assemblies.

In tooling design CAE help engineer to determine and optimize the production processes. Nowadays engineer is challenged to construct a robust tool design, that right for the first time, so number of trial can be reduced.
