Virtual Performance Solution
In various industries, manufacturers are striving to develop greener and safer products, using lighter materials and innovative designs, while ensuring leading-edge functional standards, including safety, comfort, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), acoustics, stiffness and durability.
VPS addresses all these key attributes and allows engineers to handle interactions across multiple - and sometimes conflicting - domains efficiently.
VPS enables multi-domain optimization by reducing the number of physical prototypes, shortening design cycles and cutting development costs.
The solution features a single core-model for all domains of performance and is able to run all load cases on a single cluster to limit design iterations and lead time induced by synchronization between domains.
Virtual Performance Solution faces challenges such as:
- How to cope with safety regulations while reducing weight?
- How to anticipate the impact of new materials and manufacturing processes on product performance?
- How to match conflicting requirements and bring revolutionary changes to increasingly complex products, while cutting the development costs and time drastically?
“At Skoda Auto, we have been using Virtual Performance Solution (VPS) for several years. Thanks to VPS we may be more efficient using the same core model for crash, safety and linear statics. The one core model approach is already used for bonnet design and allows us to make better decisions on design changes in a reduced time cycle. We can benefit from this approach even more, which will allow us to introduce advanced chaining analysis such as spring back after crash loads.”
