Accelerating Product Design at Jaguar Land Rover

Creating new virtual engineering processes, accelerating vehicle product design and development.

Back to Projects

Collaborative expertise and access to supercomputing facilities enabled the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC) to create new virtual engineering processes for Jaguar Land Rover, accelerating vehicle product design.

The VEC team developed Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) process templates and optimisation methods to support future designs for Jaguar Land Rover, which has reduced the time taken for these processes from several weeks to a timescale of several days.
