Product development is becoming more complex. It involves not only system simulation requirements, but also the need to manage and share huge amounts of engineering information that is housed throughout the world. It quickly becomes complex when getting into detailed system simulation for powertrain applications such as sealing products. Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) has played a major role in development, design, and performance optimization for those applications for a long time. Due to the complexity of the current simulation environment and the need to expand simulation to the whole engineering process, including manufacturing, new analytical tools are required to support development, virtual testing, and decision-making.
