How Can Decisions on Development Efficiency Be Made For a Competitive Vehicle Portfolio?


Two things prompt OEMs to rethink their vehicle portfolio and technology roadmap: the rapid progression of the automotive industry towards new powertrain technologies – legally compliant with the lowest environmental footprint - combined with the emerging mobility trends empowered by autonomous driving features.

The system complexity due to the high number of variants and combinations of technologies and the extended testing effort to comply with emission legislation and autonomous driving safety measures will lead to an immense amount of test tasks. The resulting test gap can only be closed by considering the entire development process and adding new test approaches. Changing the development process by applying simulation and leveraging validation and calibration frontloading as well as efficiency programs for lab management and operation have a direct impact on the planning of the future investments in simulation and test factories.

Within this decision triangle - choosing a competitive product portfolio, applying an efficient development process and realizing an efficient simulation and test factory - digitalization plays a key role. It enables interoperability within the development process by making the necessary data such as functional requirements, simulation models and parameters for the functional prototype, test orders and results available whenever needed.

In this 60-minute webinar Engelbert Loibner, Team Leader Business Development & Marketing for the Integrated and Open Development Platform at AVL, will discuss a comprehensive approach to support making the right decisions for the demanding questions in the automotive industry: Which vehicle portfolio should be developed? How should vehicles be developed efficiently? How can costs in the test factory be reduced? And how will digitalization improve the development process?
