Regulators will continue to expect OEMs and the supplier industry to achieve higher fuel economy and significant emission reductions. The incumbents will have to meet these requirements, while maintaining drivability and performance benchmarks. Technological innovations need to be leveraged to comply with such regulations, and to safeguard the balance between vehicle energy management and functional performance in all components, systems and sub-systems.

In fact, vehicle concepts and architectures should be evaluated comprehensively to make design decisions. In other words, detailed design analysis of full vehicle and its sub-components should be undertaken to appraise an integrated systems that comprises of mechanical, thermal, electrical and controls subsystems. Design analysis and engineering processes should be aligned with upcoming regulatory requirements by embracing concepts like vehicle energy management, which integrate green engineering into current product development processes, while continuing to improve vehicle’s drivability and performance. Broadly, assessment and analysis of the following attributes need to be done:

  • Equilibrium between drivability and fuel economy
  • Designing for optimum range and lower energy consumption
  • Optimization of energy flows

SAE and Siemens Industry Software invites you to join us for an educative and interactive two-day workshop focused on achieving your fuel economy targets in harmony with conflicting performances.
