Challenges

It’s no secret that the auto industry is facing the most difficult challenges in its history. Consumer demand for innovation, quality, and “coolness” continues to increase – as does pressure to reduce cost and operate more lean.

MSC.Software’s CAE tools allow automotive companies to create and test virtual prototypes of components, subsystems, and full vehicles that are proven to save time and money when compared to the conventional “build and test” process. In passenger vehicles, sports cars, trucks, motorcycles and race cars, MSC solutions have been at work every day for over 40 years.

MSC solutions for the automotive industry include modeling and analysis for:

  • NVH
  • Road loads
  • Durability and fatigue
  • Air bag deployment
  • Crash and Safety
  • Mechatronics
  • Vehicle dynamics
  • Ride and handling
  • Aerodynamics
  • Fuel Economy
  • Thermal performance
  • Powertrain
  • Engine
  • Tires
  • Body
  • Chassis
