CREATING A PRODUCT ECOSYSTEM
Reducing time to market is a major challenge for OEMs. Developing minimum
viable products demands secure individual development steps and
continuous feasibility checks. However, the seamless workflow required to
achieve this is hindered by heterogeneous tool landscapes. So it is vital to
create interoperability in the toolchain with suitable connectivity solutions.
This requires the creation of a product ecosystem – the engine of which
is digitalization – across all stages of the product lifecycle. Extra value is
created when each department along the value chain adds data, which is
shared throughout the process, from the design stage to test and validation,
production, operation and service. This is further enriched when inuse
data is fed back into the process to provide value in earlier phases.
At AVL we have created solutions to facilitate such activities. For example,
our model database helps you manage the complete architecture for digital
prototypes, and our Model Server prepares complete model structures
for co-simulation. In addition, we also offer consulting services to support
the implementation of overall connectivity solutions.
Our Integrated Open Development Platform (IODP) approach enables you
to establish an integrated development environment using the right tools
for you, from the most appropriate suppliers. This provides security (risk
minimization by virtually securing development results), agility (accelerated
new product development), and the ability to establish a digital product
ecosystem tailored to your needs.
INCREASING POWERTRAIN DEVELOPMENT EFFICIENCY
There is huge pressure on OEMs to increase development efficiency. Digitalization
supports these goals, however, data is often not available, inconsistent
(due to decentralized data silos), or not embedded in their contextual
framework (missing meta data).
Our Data Intelligence solutions help you tackle this by making data searchable,
re-usable and by enabling interactive data exploration. Meaningful metrics
and the introduction of relevance criteria allow you to create a semantic
framework upon which advanced analytics enable predictions and an automated
classification of good-or-bad cases. All of these help customers turn
data into valuable information for better decision making, increased development
efficiency and better end-product quality.
For example, globally distributed fleet tests of sometimes hundreds of vehicles
in various testing scenarios, such as climatic and altitude tests, produce
large amounts of data. Our Fleet Analytics service helps you streamline
fleet testing and gives your globally distributed engineers full campaign
transparency with permanent and real–time access to relevant information
via end–to–end data connectivity solutions. This helps to reduce effort and
avoid wasted testing miles.
AVL data intelligence projects are driven by our teams of experienced project
engineers and data scientists with specific domain know-how and powertrain
engineering expertise. With their deep insight, they enable your engineers
to make smarter decisions in
product development, and reduce
testing and validation effort.
TO THE JOB
In the private sphere, convenient
“smart helpers” assist with daily
tasks. However, in the professional
world things look quite different.
Manual processes can be complicated
and bureaucratic, learning from
experience may fail because of inaccessible
data, and the available
numbers often don’t give any hints
what to do.
Our Global Customer Services
team is bringing B2C convenience
into the B2B world of automotive
testing. They do this by simplifying
the interaction between your
ecosystem and ours, and by helping
you to streamline the utilization
and service of test equipment.
