Abstract

In today's competitive society the difference between winning and disappearing might very well be dependent on who is first to release a new product or an update to an existing product to the market. The impact that this situation has on the design analysis department in a company is tremendous. It is a known fact, to everyone working with design analysis, that the demands on analyses from the product development and design department in a company is constantly increasing both with respect to complexity, quality and quantity. One of the most obvious reasons for this is most likely that the engineering designers of today have tools at their disposal to generate new geometries and variants very fast and accurately. The introduction of fully parameterized, two way associative, 3D CAD programs have revolutionized the way engineering designers work today compared to the situation just a decade or two ago.
The implemented Internet/intranet based FE-modeling tool will enhance the possibility for design engineers to fast and efficiently generate new variants of a given design concept. The tool are implemented with the aim to give engineering designers the possibility to add/replace predefined parts and/or components to an overall FE-structure.
