ESTABLISHMENT OF AN AUTOMOBILE OPTIMAL PRODUCT DESIGN MODEL: APPLICATION TO STUDY ON BOLT-NUT LOOSENING MECHANISMPages: 79-102
Authors: Kakuro Amasaka
The author establishes an “Automobile Optimal Product Design Model” (AOPDM) as part of principle - based research aimed at the innovation of development design processes in the automotive industry. This model’s validity is verified with application to study on loosening mechanism of bolt-nut tightening and others as the auto-manufacturers’ bottleneck in the world automotive industries. In order to enable the high quality assurance and simultaneous achievement of QCD to satisfy the requirements of developing automobile product design, it is necessary to initiate the transition from the conventional prototype testing method to predictive evaluation method by the combination of various experiments and CAE.
