The Transportation & Mobility Playground will be one of the key strategic element to increase 3DEXPERIENCE value visibility to C-level to feel inspired and confident how the 3DEXPERIENCE platform will bring value to automotive customers and give ideas to help with 2019 business achievement.
The Inspiration today is an OEM that is delivering electrical vehicle to the market. This OEM decided to introduce a new EV named “La bleu Coupe” to the market. To minimize cost and time development, it will be an evolution of an existing vehicle. The “Innovation center” organization of this OEM is responsible for the development of this new concept in a short timeframe and in an agile mode.
The playground will show how the team has been able to reach this challenge thanks to the value of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Experience 1: PORTFOLIO & PRODUCT PLANNING
LEARN ABOUT = VISION & EXPLORATION
What is our company, what is the vision for the new “Bleu Coupé”. This demo will tell us how the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has been essential during the Exploration phase to ensure we imagine a car that will provide a delightful customer experience.
This demo will introduce how the Portfolio has been defined and how the full adoption of the 3D stimulated creativity to explore concept & alternatives.
Experience 2: AUTONOMOUS & CONNECTED VEHICLE
LEARN ABOUT = SPECIFICATIONS & ARCHITECTURE
In such a competitive industry, each second, each km battery range, each charging time minute has great value for the company. Our team will optimize now the vehicle performance in the conceptual phase. Why this concept phase is so important for us? Because in this project timeframe car makers still have the freedom & flexibility to select the best alternative. After that, the cost will be so huge, that they will not be able to afford it.
This demo will present how The 3DEXPERIENCE, which integrates different authoring tools, allow us to optimize multi discipline domain vehicle performances.
Then this demo will explain how Agile model based SYSTEMES engineering has been key to boost innovation for embedded systems and software.
Experience 3: DATA EXCHANGE & COLLABORATION
LEARN ABOUT = GOVERNANCE & COLLABORATION
One of our challenges to develop the new “Bleu coupé” is to maximize the components reuse of vehicle already available on the market. This will help us to minimize the cost and reduce development time.
Let to see with this demo how we have been able to master the vehicles engineering complexity, using modularization and configuration within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and how our engineers are working in a full agile collaborative environment.
Experience 4: PERFORMANCE VALIDATION
LEARN ABOUT = ENGINEERING & VALIDATION
During detail design development phase, engineers have to be aligned with all the requirements. One of them is critical for an Electrical vehicle: The Weight. Because of the importance of the battery weight, it’s necessary to optimize component’s weight. We have decided to use innovative technology named “generative design” to create optimized shapes. Let see with this demo how this technology helps us to reach weigh KPI.
Then we will see how we have use digital electric simulation tools during electrical engine development phase.
Experience 5: MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING & SIMULATION, EXECUTION & OPTIMIZATION
LEARN ABOUT = MANUFACTURING & OPERATIONS
Another challenge for the “bleu coupé” was to anticipate and minimize the manufacturing costs. Thanks to the manufacturing Apps of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we have been able to modify and optimize the existing assembly line in a very short timeframe.
This demo will present us how Manufacturing engineers have modified the assembly line to introduce the new vehicle “La bleu coupé” within the existing line.
And then for the last step, how we monitor and optimize global production operation on the shop floor.
