Bombardier Transportation is a market leader in the rolling stock industry for short- and long-haul, passenger, and freight rail transportation. Its wide range of products includes passenger rail vehicles and complete rail transportation systems.
Challenge:Need to consolidate multiple engineer software packages
Benefits:By doing analysis early in the project, Bombardier can eliminate a significant amount of physical testing. Sometimes as a result of early analysis, the engineers set up a physical fatigue test on particular components, especially bogies. This testing runs in the background as analysis continues. Each new product series is monitored throughout its life to measure and document its fatigue response.
