Day 2: Keynotes - June 27th, 2017
The presenters will share insights into their development processes and how challenges in product development can be overcome by allying the right tools and methods at the right time. This day is a must for all engineers and product creators looking for high level insights from leading industries.
During time, we will upload the abstracts of the keynotes here.

When simulation turns into reality
Our last aircraft development, the A350 XWB, took benefit of complex advanced numerical simulations. The presentation will present the today’s state of the art in terms of numerical simulation and the very latest progress Airbus did on the topic. The presentation will go through what remains to develop in the future so to make numerical simulation much more effective in the design process of an aircraft in order to:
Industry 4.0 – How Digitalization makes Weight & Balance Process more agile and connected
In the context of Industry 4.0, most enterprise processes must become more digitized. A key element will be the evolution of the traditional product development toward a connected and highly efficient ecosystem, where humans, machines and resources communicate with each other and work collaboratively.
The weight and balance process today is a series of discrete and fragmentary steps taken by different actors: designers, weight engineers, structural engineers, suppliers, program management and executives, manufacturing. Digitization brings down walls, and the product life cycle becomes a completely integrated ecosystem that is fully transparent to all the players involved.
Weight Analytics solution provides high data consistency and transparency, standardization and automation of workflows, a powerful BI tool to support analysis and decisions making, which have a tremendous impact on process and product quality.

Vehicle Concept and Structure of the new Opel Ampera-e
The new Opel Ampera-e is a milestone towards the future of electric mobility – a vehicle suitable for daily usage with a range of up to 500km at a reasonable price. The car offers fun to drive, space for 5 passengers and a fast re-charging capability.
One of the biggest challenges during the vehicle development was the integration of the RESS (Rechargeable Energy Storage System) with 60kWh capacity into the car - the large battery pack with the surrounding electrical components needed to be packaged into the vehicle, attached to the body structure and protected during crash events in an efficient way. Another difficult task was to bring the overall vehicle mass down as much as possible - this was enabled by consequent application of CAE including design and gage optimization as well as intelligent use of high strength steels and aluminum.
In summary the new Opel Ampera-e offers the customer a great car with the optimum balance regarding performance, package, mass and cost.

3D Printing for the Design of Engines of the Future
The Renault Trucks Lyon Powertrain Engineering department has focused on using additive manufacturing as a future engine manufacturing process. A prototype DTI 5 4- cylinder Euro 6 step C engine has been designed exclusively using this technology. This process has enabled to reduce the weight of a 4-cylinder engine by 120 kg or 25%.
This presentation shows how additive manufacturing releases us from constraints and unlock engineers creativity and how topology optimization contribute to obtain results in a short loop.
The Secret life of Models
In the context of a rapidly changing landscape in the Energy domain, the development or upgrade of an offer that can sustain new requirements is challenged by factors such as the increase in the complexity of use cases, inter-discipline dependencies, and the emergence of different asset management approaches.
Although the core business is rarely changed drastically, the offer proposition to the end customer represents a paradigm shift. Many legacy aspects of offers will become commodities while all functionalities that are related to sustainability will gain in importance. To support these changes, Engineering Disciplines must combine continuous improvement of their core competencies with an extension of scope.
After a brief introduction of the changes in the Energy Landscape, an analysis of the life of models will be presented from the viewpoint of system engineering. Along with the paradigm shift in the use of models, the power of the multidisciplinary use of models will be approached such as for Design Space Exploration, Verification-Validation for cyber-Physical offer or maintenance purposes.
One of the key success factors of this silent but strong evolution is the correct usage of models. This change in how models are used can be quite subtle. It is all about the secret life of models. Show less
Realizing Electric Mobility Today
StreetScooter – Electric Mobility brought to the streets.
In this presentation we will show how we developed an electric vehicle, starting with a project idea and ending with the approval of the vehicle for road traffic.
The presentation will cover the entire development process from early concepts to the actual production of the StreetScooter and will give an outlook on future developments.
