Aeronautical engineering services provider accelerates its systems design process with Simcenter Amesim
Assuming broader responsibilities
According to a long-term forecast published by Boeing entitled, “Current Market Outlook 2013-2032,” the in-service commercial aircraft fleet will double in size from 20,310 airplanes in 2013 to 41,240 by 2032. More than 35,000 new fuel efficient airplanes will be needed to meet airline industry needs, including 41 percent that will replace older models.
Ten years ago the aerospace market was dominated by two aircraft giants. That situation is changing as new manufacturers in China, Russia, Japan and Brazil are as eager to take their share of the growing worldwide market. These market entrants expect more support from their component suppliers, so they have no choice but to expand their competencies to encompass entire aircraft systems. Therefore, component suppliers are more and more involved in system configuration and integration as they take more responsibility and share the inherent risks of an increasingly
shorter development cycle. In this context, simulation becomes an indispensable part of the development process, not only for the component and system design, but also for architecture configuration, systems integration and validation.
“ What really differentiates Simcenter Amesim from other tools is its prebuilt and validated component models that allow design engineers to significantly reduce component modeling and validation efforts.”
