The use modern computer techniques in product and process development will play a decisive role in the future competitiveness of industry.
The enormous increases in calculating power, dramatic drops in prices and improving user-friendliness in hard- and software, are opening up new applications for these techniques.
In contrast to current computer supported design, drafting and manufacturing methods, the development of numerical simulations for complex processes in technical data processing has only just begin.
The aim of the project is to increase knowledge in this area, the partnership wish to attain this objective in close cooperation with each other.
Technical foundry processes in particular need even more comprehensive research and development in order to identify and quantify the controlling factors of the system and also make modern computer data manipulation techniques more accessible.
The results they obtain by the partners in the development of new calculation procedures could open up new possibilities for computer simulation. At the same time the solutions to these fundamental problems should also include interfaces between computer simulation and other computer assisted technologies. The objective is a comprehensive proven concept for computer integrated manufacturing in foundries.
