The Function of Design Enablers In a CAE-driven Product Development Process
Companies are seeking solutions that enable them to decrease development time or make their present platforms more efficient in order to compete in competitive markets and meet compressed time to market requirements. As a result, automation is becoming an increasingly significant component of CAE. Smart processes are available to automatically perform operations such as contact definition, and auto repair contacts are being added to help engineers save time. Design Enablers is a sophisticated module in DEP MeshWorks that allows users to automatically generate common design solutions needed to improve structural and CFD performance and save weight. These Design Enablers can be implemented as a complete solution, replete with attributes, materials, connectors, and so on. These enablers can be run as a standalone process or as a parameter with numerous instances. In conclusion, the advantages of design enablers in CAE design optimization are numerous, and tools such as DEP MeshWorks are only improving their parameters with each new edition.
