Simulation reduces development time.
In cooperation with VELUX, DIS has investigated the possibility of further developing VELUX’ existing product development process by using simulation to a greater extent. By using simulation, development time can be reduced as well as reduce risks and costs before producing prototypes and ultimately the final product
The window manufacturer VELUX, who is the leading company within the development, production and sale of skylight windows, contacted DIS to get an overview of available simulation methods that could be relevant to further develop and whether other types of calculations could be interesting to implement in their existing product development process.
Among other things, simulations make it possible to estimate the structural and functional properties of a product based on design and material properties. It allows for parts of the product development process to be shortened as well as a more optimal design often can be achieved.
Simulation can be performed by using various software programs. A virtual 3D model is put through simulated situations; some examples are:
- Static Structural, which reveals structural strength and deformations
- Transcient Structural/Explicit Dynamics, which reveals the structural strength from a time-dependent perspective such as drop or impact test
- Steady-state Thermal, which shows thermal conduction and temperature gradients in a structure in an equilibrium
- Computational Fluid Dynamics, which shows fluid and heat flows in liquids and gases through and around components
VELUX has received an overview from DIS on how they best utilize and further develop simulations in the product development process, and how other types of simulation and calculation methods can be implemented in this process. DIS has also advised VELUX on the level of competences needed to conduct the various types of simulation. Furthermore, DIS will support VELUX when it comes to the development of skills and competences of their employees, so they always have the right level of competence to utilize selected simulation methods optimally in their process.
Simulation is just another area where DIS is able to assist with virtual product development and it includes Computer Aided Design, Computer Aided Industrial Design, Computer Aided Manufacturing and Product Lifetime Management.
DIS uses simulation on many different projects and for many different customers in the industry. DIS uses simulation to optimize and quality assure a product and has extensive expertise and experience with simulations in general.
