Digital Engineering 2020

Digitial Engineering 2020 - 23rd Nov 2020 - 27th Nov 2020

Digital Engineering 2020 will explore current trends and future developments in product engineering as the increased use of virtual toolchains – not discrete computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications – becomes essential for future vehicle development. A key focus will be on Virtual Product Development (VPD): a right-first-time design approach with more efficient physical testing through eliminating prototype hardware stages in the development process.

Complex System Simulation

As a direct response to the growing complexity of propulsion and energy systems. We advocate a ‘system of systems’ approach which uses smart integration to achieve more than the sum of its parts by considering propulsion, application and infrastructure concurrently with the design integration of a supplier or new technology into a full system.

Post-COVID Process Improvement

Has COVID-19 changed the product development process forever? Increased remote working and travel restrictions have meant that we have all had to adopt how businesses operate.

Ricardo employed a ‘digital first’ strategy, which saw the creation of 2,000 home offices as employees worked safely from home, and we were able to continue to deliver services to our global customer base and products safely but remotely. Generally, it has been business as usual but, like many, we have had to adapt the way we do business.

In this section, we cover how Ricardo's digital strategies have helped us to continue to deliver world-class engineering remotely and how our expertise could support your business in this new landscape.

Q&A with James Mullineux

Has remote working during COVID-19 changed the product development process forever?

Ricardo's Head of Digital Engineering discusses digital engineering, simulation and analysis and considers whether remote working during COVID-19 might have changed the product development process forever.
