Workflow Integration of Computer Aided Engineering: An Educational Approach

Workflow Integration of Computer Aided Engineering: An Educational Approach.
In: Proceedings of the 6th EUROSIM Congress on Modelling and Simulation, Ljubljana, Slovenia, [Book Section]

Abstract

The increasing importance and frequent use of computer aided engineering (CAE) methods motivate universities for educational activities in the interdisciplinary field of Computational Engineering (CE). Current approaches in the education of CE focus mainly on the specific topics, which are driven from a domain-centric perspective. Didactic concepts focusing on the stand-alone application fields hinder a holistic understanding of CE. Industrial applications of CE are applied indeed in the product creation process, for which data and processes are to be defined and managed regarding the product lifecycle aspects. The department of Computer Integrated Design (DiK) of the Faculty of Mechanical and Process Engineering has been involved in the study program "Computational Engineering" from the very beginning. Within this frame a new course "Introduction to CAE-D" has been established in the fall semester 2006 with a scope on the interdisciplinary feature of CE. Understanding of CAE as a process within the product lifecycle plays a crucial role in the syllabus. This contribution presents key points of a new approach towards an educational concept for CE considering the lifecycle aspects. The course aims at describing CAE as a dominating link between the engineering design and analysis, which enables efficient and reliable product verification. Students from different departments are made familiar with the notion of data integrity of CAE within a process chain.
