Method development strategies in multi-CAD systems
CAD-based methods for holistic and consistent product data and metadata management
Development of knowledge-based methods for construction
Quality control and processing of 3D-CAD product data for further processing in the data process chain
Integrated connection and interfaces between CAD and CAE
This field of work has its core competences in 3D-CAD component and surface design as well as Product Data Management (PDM) using knowledge-based development methods. In addition to the 3D CAD design, systems from the areas of 3D flow simulation (CFD), computer-aided styling (CAS), photo-realistic 3D visualization and finite element methods are used. To implement innovative, virtually supported development processes, problem-oriented software solutions in combination with CAx systems and databases are developed and implemented in practice.
