Gear Shift Modeling and Analysis for Automatic Transmissions in MapleSim

In this paper, a simple dynamic physical model of an automatic transmission was created to evaluate all required forces and motion characteristics of the system during the shift process. Gear shift quality was assessed by setting different timing sequences for the engage/disengage process of the frictional components (pressure on the clutches), during the upshift process. The output torque of the transmission was analyzed under two conditions, with the timing to apply/remove pressure from the clutches being different in both cases.

Development of Real-Time Battery Models for HIL testing of Battery Management Systems

The explosion in the use of electronic devices, electrified vehicles and decentralized power utilities has driven demand for rechargeable batteries. This has led to a significant increase in research investment into battery technologies to address challenges including thermal stability and battery life extension. This whitepaper outlines how such challenges can be overcome in the development of a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing system for the Battery Management Systems (BMS) used in electrical energy storage products.

Parallel Prototyping and the Engineer’s Dilemma

R&D Engineers face rapidly shrinking development cycles and rising competitive pressures. In the high-stakes practice of regulatory compliance, balancing development costs with speed, safety and performance are critical to a product’s success. This paper demonstrates how the parallel prototyping of two materials in a heating component contributes to the return on investment of a new product launch in the medical device industry. The study addresses the verification, validation, form and fit testing relative to the FDA approval process, as well as its execution within component design, product design and pilot production.

How to Turn Your Engineers Into Product Design Superheroes

Today's innovative companies are built on the shoulders of the engineering teams responsible for designing products. Smart companies invest in tools that translate into better products. A modern Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution removes tedious admin responsibilities, streamlines the design environment, and empowers engineers to collaborate more efficiently with other departments. In short, PLM enables engineers to make the organization more profitable by allowing them to spend more time focused on the task they do best: designing innovative, world-class products. In this whitepaper, we focus on how PLM empowers engineers to spend more time on product design by optimizing their relationship with the different departments across the organization with which they must interact.
