ETA offers design optimization services for existing product refinement or clean sheet designs to complement internal product development processes. It can provide significant results in terms of mass and cost reduction, while overall product performance is improved. The design optimization process can be applied to any product design from a component, sub-system assembly and full vehicle.
The optimization process analyzes hundreds to thousands of possible designs to find the most efficient design solution. It locates the optimal shape for the design and the optimal level and placement of the material. Beyond structural performance, the balance of multidisciplinary objectives such as cost, manufacturing constraints and material handling are considered at the onset of the project.
Design Optimization Results
- Reduce Product Development Cost by 35-40%
- Improve Manufacturing Efficiency
- Reduce Product Mass by ~ 40%
- Improve Product Performance
- Improve Fuel Efficiency
