Einsatz der Simulation in der Prozesskette Karosseriebau

The industrial simulation methods used today is the result of a development process during the last two decades. A main focus of this process was the continuous optimization to characterize the material properties. The presentation will give an overview of the simulation technology challenges arising from the need to improve bridging of the gaps between material data and computational technology. Furthermore, an integrated technology pathway from the perspective of simulation requirements, material characterization needs, simulation technology innovations, and impactsthose requirements on the accuracy of practical applications in the automotive world is discussed. Based on the Digital Factory project at Daimler, now we are integrating the forming simulation, joining simulation and welding simulation in our digital planning and review process of sheet metal part production and assembling. Particularly during the process of sheet-metal part production, planning times for press plants and tools can be drastically reduced by the introduction of digital planning and simulation methods. This applies to the application of standards, full data integration, defined planning processes (workflows) and the automation of planning tasks. Furthermore, planning qualityincreased as well as the maturity of the planning results due to consistent digital review of each individual process step by means of simulation. In addition, effective areas and the benefit potentialthe digital techniques with regard to the planning process can be identified. This would show how the implementation of the vision of a "virtual process chain" can help to resolve the challenges faced in the planning of systems and tools for manufacturing parts.
