September 18, 2019 – Siemens Digital Industries Software announced the latest release of the Simcenter Testlab software suite, designed to help engineers make quicker decisions by increasing productivity in testing scenarios through new capabilities. It has been specifically designed to offer test teams all the capabilities they need to innovate smart products. Now, test-based data is used for validation and certification and also earlier in the development cycle, during simulation and design.
The latest version introduces technologies, as well as a series of functional enhancements. These include:
To advance model-based development, model-based system testing uniquely closes the loop with simulation and enables system validation based on a combined physical and virtual test.
Component-based transfer path analysis (TPA) predicts full-system noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance in the development cycle by combining component models and measurements.
In response to NVH challenges in vehicle electrification, the latest release covers the minimum noise standards for Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS), introduces active sound design to create brand-specific sounds, and enhances sound quality engineering with interactive audio and video replay.
The latest version of Simcenter Testlab adds extensions to Simcenter Testlab Neo software– a platform for test-based engineering— and to the other Simcenter Testlab solutions.
