With new models of cars and SUVs doled out by manufacturers every day, engineering lead times have been reduced beyond imagination. In addition, increased warranty and liability issues, fuel conservation and environmental regulations have cropped up. These and related costs need to be accommodated in old constrained budgets. The budget slice for physical testing has been drastically reduced, and in some cases physical testing is just not an option. Lead times for automotive majors have been reduced from 50+ months in the 1990s to 15 months with the adoption of CAE. Physical testing which used to involve large investments and 4-6 months has been replaced by CAE simulation which can accomplish the same task in 1-2 months with much smaller investments. The NISA product line has been helping the automotive industry for the last two decades in analyzing many complex problems.
