Simcenter Engineering and Consulting Services

An experienced engineering partner in your digitalization journey.

Karma automotive

A relentless pursuit of excellence

Karma established a strategic partnership with Simcenter Engineering and Consulting Services to meet noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance targets and implement state-of-the-art NVH testing and simulation processes.

Digital twin

Engineering departments in all industries are challenged with the increased complexity of smart, sustainable products that today’s market demands. Simcenter Engineering and Consulting Services helps you build a digital twin of your products to make them more efficient, comfortable, reliable, and durable than ever before. We are a trusted partner at every step of your digitalization journey, from the early design stage onwards.

Our team offers services that go beyond standalone simulation efforts or isolated testing campaigns. We combine these into one comprehensive solution to help you build the true digital twin.

Autonomous vehicle safety and comfort

Simcenter Engineering and Consulting Services can partner with your team to manage safety engineering, meet driver expectations and regional traffic conditions, and ensure driver comfort, trust, acceptance and perceived safety of autonomous systems.

Our team can also help develop ADAS features that meet driver expectations and regional traffic conditions. Adaptive cruise control, autonomous parking, sensor fusion, and physical testing are just a few examples of how we support automotive manufacturers and suppliers to virtually access and validate the system and vehicle performance for autonomous driving.

Additionally, the Simcenter engineering team helps companies comply with international quality standards, including ISO 26262, ISO 21448 SOTIF, and STPA.

Model-based engineering

Model-based engineering utilizes virtual models of physics-based systems, which is a digital twin used to accelerate product development. Simcenter Engineering and Consulting Services helps you build and use a comprehensive digital twin to perform virtual verification of the software and hardware performance of your product and assist you in your digitalization journey.

This process is powered by Simcenter solutions, which enable engineering teams to use a common modeling environment that provides different degrees of fidelity throughout the product development program. Our team helps you implement a model-based engineering approach that takes advantage of model-in-the-loop, software-in-the-loop, and hardware-in-the-loop virtual verification environments using Simcenter to run models either on a desktop or in real-time. We provide quality testing to ensure that the system is behaving as expected and to resolve issues before a physical testing campaign is executed.

Energy/thermal management

Engineers today are expected to optimize the energy and thermal behavior of more interconnected systems than ever before. All these systems need to balance the energy entering the product and temperature in the most sustainable way possible. Simcenter Engineering and Consulting Services has decades of experience combining simulation and test for complex full thermal analysis of the entire vehicle.
