The constant innovation of the product and the reduction of the time to market are played the key factors for the competitiveness of the all manufacturing companies. The introduction of new innovative products in the market, requires the use of a innovative methods and tools, in other to calculate the behavior and the product performances, consideration the interactions with the end user.
Therefore, it is necessary to development a news approach and methodology user-friendly, able to implement quickly and easily the different products and process.
The research activity aims at the development of CAD models based able to interaction with numerical simulators (0D, 1D, 2D, 3D) and simulate and optimize product performance. Starting from the commercial tools have been implemented approaches and / or methods that can communicate quickly and easily with the designer but at the same time produce a good results of the virtual simulation.
The use of these approaches is implemented during the entire life cycle of the product, from the concept phase going to its maturity, up to its end of life, as a continuous improvement is required from the current world markets.
The activities are carried out in the Virtual Prototyping laboratory
