SAMSUNG Electronics can save up to 90% engineers’ time with ESI’s VisualDSS
ESI Group announced today the recent implementation of a Simulation-Based Design environment in Samsung Electronics Corporation’s (SEC) Visual Display division. The unified Simulation-Based Design environment relies on VisualDSS, ESI’s end-to-end Decision Support System enabling companies to build and manage simulation models for multi-domain usage, to manage simulation content and data, and to automate project workflow.
To successfully complete the project, different existing CAE solutions were integrated to VisualDSS among which Vdot™, ESI’s project monitoring and execution platform optimizing development processes. The integration of Vdot™ into VisualDSS resulted in obtaining the first industrial version of ESI’s Project Team Manager. The Project Team Manager was fully web-enabled, thereby allowing engineers to easily access standard, automated processes and workflows.
The other options which were incorporated to VisualDSS include:
* Interface with a third party portfolio of PLM solutions for guided CAE automation such as auto meshing and auto assembly
* Job submission
* Automatic generation of standard reports
* Interface with a third party optimization tool
* Interface with SEC’s internal Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system
* Process template for CAE automation to facilitate SEC’s most common analyses: Mold Pressure and Wobble analyses
The project involved ESI engineers and experts on the one hand and CAE and IT experts from SEC on the other, ensuring the timely delivery of the complete system according to production usage specifications.
To measure the success of this implementation, SEC tested the simulation data management system with the design of a new Samsung visual display model: an LCD television screen. SEC observed an outstanding reduction of the loading time in the design process. Indeed, the Mold Pressure analysis time was reduced by 90% and the Wobble analysis by almost 95%. Along with these measurable benefits, SEC was able to widen the scope of its design investigation while maintaining the traceability of the data and content. The unified Simulation-Based Design environment in place served thus as a decision-making tool for SEC management.
In addition, SEC experienced improved work efficiency for the visual display team who was able to verify the effect of component design changes of the entire LCD model much faster than prior to the implementation.
