How automotive manufacturers can optimize their products for BS VI norms compliance with Dassault Systèmes’ solutions
Bharat Stage Emission Standard (BSES) is the yardstick for regulating the air pollutants from automobiles with combustion engines. BS VI is the sixth stage of the BS Emission norms instated by the Government of India and Central Pollution Control Board to regulate the emission from motor vehicles. Automakers in India must conform to the standards and implementation timeline of BS VI by April 2020. Leading automotive manufacturers have a huge stock shelved that do not comply with the BS VI emission regulation and risk facing huge losses. Automakers need to invest in technology that enables them to upgrade their vehicles in stock. Also, they will have to invest in R&D and infrastructure in the manufacturing plants to develop new kind of auto machinery.
The Supreme Court of India has barred the sale and registration of automotive vehicles not in compliance with the BS VI across the country from 1st April 2020. Leading to automotive manufacturers having a huge stock shelved that do not comply with the BS VI emission regulation and risk facing huge losses. Automakers need to invest in technology that enables them to upgrade their vehicles in stock. Also, they will have to invest in R&D and infrastructure in the manufacturing plants to develop new kind of auto machinery.
Main challenge for automakers is to reduce their development cycles by up to 50%. The process towards compliance is accelerated with advanced design and manufacturing simulation. This digital workflow enables design innovation within the confines of the new regulation. Integration of existing data and IP into a single enterprise platform that is accessible universally enables inter- and intra-team collaboration for digital creation and validation of enhanced designs.
The key to achieving reduced emission is the simulation of each part of the interconnected system. With the 3D simulation model, engineers analyse the vehicle behaviour thoroughly to realize ways for improvements. Redesigning a particular part or the entire engine digitally is done easily and accurately with desired outcomes. Having a clear view of the discrete system and how it operates in real-world scenarios helps in reducing development times within the OEM and supply chains.
Existing vehicle models can be upgraded for BS VI compliance by retrofitting new systems and components. Deploying simulation throughout the supply chain aids the improvement in quality before the production of parts. Complex interfaces and co-relationship are easily analysed to address the integration and functionality issues within the new regulations.
Dassault Systèmes solutions help customers certify the numerous variants, meet regulations to ensure on target vehicle launch that helps manufacturers streamline the certification process from design, portfolio management, requirements, test results and verification. Simulation solutions enables the certification process with real-time tracking and achieve challenging targets through enhanced design by leveraging the industry insights and know-how.
Using 3D product development and simulation solution such as CATIA, SIMULIA and more, manufacturers are overcoming major process-related issues to innovate new transportation concepts integrated with the developing infrastructure will help realize this new policy. Few ways to reduce emission using simulation can be done by light weighting, aerodynamic efficiency, powertrain efficiency, electrification, tyre engineering and real driving emissions.
