NAFEMS Webinar: Keeping a Large Enterprise Engaged in the Journey from "Test Centered" to a "Simulation-Led" Product/Process Development

  • Date:
    Oct 06, 2021 - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Meeting Title: Keeping a Large Enterprise Engaged in the Journey from "Test Centered" to a "Simulation-Led" Product/Process Development
Presenter Names: Darrel Meffert
Date: Wednesday, 6 October 2021 
Time EDT: 11:00 am- 12:00 pm EDT; 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm UTC; 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CET) 

Description:

For over 90 years, Caterpillar Inc. had delivered successful products to our customers, primarily utilizing test-centric product development processes utilizing physical prototypes.

Although Caterpillar had significant simulation capability and had steadily become more dependent upon it, we had fully not leveraged simulation to the extent possible. As a result, Caterpillar developed its Enterprise Simulation Strategy in 2012 and launched it in 2013. One of the significant goals of this strategy was to transition Caterpillar from a “physical prototype-centered” product validation culture to a “simulation-led” product development culture in order to secure the following benefits: increased engineering efficiency, decreased time to market, expanded understanding of our products, and the ability to fully explore design alternatives.
