As manufacturers face demands for faster time-to-market, higher quality, and cost-effective design, they started adopting Virtual Product Development (VPD) using physics-based simulation tools and avoid the build–test–redesign–retest cycle. The benefits of VPD are palpable, with reduced development costs, significantly fewer physical prototypes, and drastically shortened development schedules. Highly powerful CAE (FEA, CFD, MBD, Durability, Acoustics, etc.), CAD, CAM and Optimization Software make realization of VPD possible. However, to develop an effective VPD, the physics-based simulation model needs to be statistically validated (V&V) so they can represent the physical system well.
