Optimization Driven Design at Renault – an Innovative Approach to Lighter and More Efficient Powertrain

This presentation will unveil how Renault and Altair partnered for a Grand Challenge to go beyond traditional applications of optimization technologies for powertrain development. For many years, Renault has been developing strong competencies on optimization and has evolved its organization and methods to best leverage it. However, this initiative increased greatly the impact of optimization by applying it in the early development phase, with an ambitious scope, yet coping with real industrial time and resources constraints.

The presentation will show how leveraging new tools, powerful automation and HPC, and expert knowledge has benefited Renault with innovation, weight saving, better performances and very efficient engineering processes.
