Tech Center Consultancy

When innovation meets cost-effectiveness.
Tech Center Consultancy

Today's investment decisions must meet the engineering needs of decades to come. The process of building a new tech center must begin with a thorough understanding of future market evolution and its effect on the product roadmap. The uncertainty of the assumptions made must be clearly understood and fully transparent, as it has a significant impact on the design of the future tech center.  AVL has a unique advantage due to our global engineering centers and diverse customer base. This provides us with a comprehensive understanding of future market developments. Combined with the fact that we build and operate our own tech centers makes us perfectly suited to offer this expertise to our customers through consulting projects.

It used to be simpler. Build a test facility to ensure product development focused on the highest performance, lowest emissions, and fastest time to market for internal combustion engines. Today, the diversity of powertrain technologies places higher demands on test facilities. They must be able to handle very high electrical power requirements as well as a variety of energy sources such as H2, Ammonia, CNG and Methanol. This additional media requires totally different safety standards and creates new challenges in the construction approval process.

Industry Solutions
Requirement Analysis

A requirements analysis consulting project leads to a clear and shared understanding of the product development strategy as a key input for the tech center planning. The customer's insights are complemented and compared with AVL's view, based on our experience gained in the numerous engineering projects we run worldwide, in a wide variety of applications and customer clusters. The input serves to elaborate the key functional elements of the tech center through a detailed understanding of the development needs and project constraints. In a further step, the conclusions lead to the identification of test system types and quantities, considering test methodology and virtualization.

Requirement Analysis
Concept Generation

Concept studies are a cornerstone of every major engineering project we undertake. Whether it's delivering turnkey solutions on greenfield sites or upgrading brownfield sites, our expertise guides our customers through the process of planning and designing their future tech center. A shared understanding of development and test requirements is translated into an optimally sized and sustainable test facility concept. We perform workflow analyses, design a layout, estimate construction costs, conduct environmental impact studies, calculate utility requirements, and evaluate project schedules, to name a few. This enables our customers to make the right investment decision in the early stages of the project.

Concept Generation
Lab Management

Building a new test facility to increase testing capacity is a major investment. AVL is experienced in performing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) analysis with our customers to get a clear picture of how well the existing test equipment is being utilized. A common conclusion is that only one third of its potential is being used. Therefore, before investing in additional test capacity, we recommend performing an OEE analysis and acting on the results before making a major investment in new test equipment.
