Applying Distributed Adaptive Optimization to Digital Car Body DevelopmentDownload Now
Companies in today’s automotive industry are under immense competitive pressure to reduce the length of their product development cycle from initial concept to begin of high-volume manufacturing. A very costly and immensely knowledge-intensive step in this process is the creation of tools and dies required to manufacture a car body of a specified design. This paper presents a novel architecture for a decision support system that streamlines the development process through the integration of a virtual assembly simulation, problem identification, and solution generation and evaluation. Following the virtual functional build process, our architecture deploys a number of multiagent systems to provide system functionality, such as problem knowledge retrieval or solution generation and evaluation.
