In today’s automotive companies the discipline of systems engineering is growing rapidly in importance and it is common practice to use many different models and simulation tools to support this process. These tools rarely interoperate and there is usually no model that represents the complete behaviour of the vehicle.
What makes the situation worse is that this lack of interoperability means that departments working on different aspects of the vehicle will all have to spend time creating models of the parts of the vehicle they are not responsible for. This means there is a large duplication of effort and wasted resource.
At Claytex we believe there is a better way by using simulation tools that are built on open standards and allow the whole vehicle to be modelled in one environment.
