White paper

A new collaborative MDO strategy for improving vehicle design at Ford Motor Company

The role of innovation in the automotive industry has emerged as a key factor, with companies shifting their revenues from well-established models to new ones.

This white paper illustrates how Ford Motor Company achieved streamlined, multi-user design process management by expanding its Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) approach at enterprise level with the ESTECO technology.

Specifically, the deployment of the ESTECO platform for Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM) made it possible for Ford engineers to:

  • process and generate large quantities of designs very quickly,
  • assure the immediate impact of results on vehicle design from the earliest design stages,
  • provide a wealth of data from which several useful design alternatives could be explored.
