Model based design to accelerate innovation
In today’s world, innovative products are tested virtually by multi-domain simulation. The first step is the proof of concepts. With the chosen architecture of the machine, more detailed analysis is performed, up to the release of the actual prototype. To accelerate the development process and validate the decision making, dynamic simulation can virtually assess and optimize the performance of systems.
Through a recent case study on a “Locomotive Speed Control System”, this presentation’s purpose is to explore the methodology used to improve the understanding of the mechatronic assembly, its operation, and to optimize the safety. Once the system virtual model operation has been perfected, controllers have also been programmed and tested in real time on the virtual model, thus reducing again the time to market. By using Model Based Design to Accelerate Innovation, the stakeholder can achieve a better engineering productivity in the design of its equipment.
