Fast Concept Modelling & Simulation (FCMS), a subsidiary of CONTACT software, has increased its collaboration with CAE specialist TECOSIM to develop a process solution for the mobility industry. According to the companies, this method speeds up the design process in the early concept phase and supports faster vehicle development.
The collaboration has created TEC|CONCEPT to help engineers analyze and reclaculate vehicle designs or individual model designs virtually.
TEC|CONCEPT allows diverse and complex requirements, such as quality, weight, stiffness and crash behavior, to be integrated early in the development process, a press release states. In addition, the possible impact of individual process-specific aspects, such as paintwork adhesion, deep drawability, casting and cost increases, can be taken into account during virtual recalculation. The CATIA-CAA-based Fast Concept Modeling (FCM) software is used for interdisciplinary harmonization between simulation and design engineering.
“Together, we can provide the mobility industry with a unique offering,” says Maximilian Zachries, general manager of FCMS GmbH. “TEC|CONCEPT enables companies to move more rapidly from the initial product idea to functionally validated model variants and concepts. This improves the productivity of their innovation processes and creates clear competitive advantages.”
