Lear Virtual Proving Ground We’ve Perfected Predicting Your Optimal Solution

Lear Virtual Proving Ground

Lear is an industry leader in electrical architecture development with technical expertise in electrical centers, electronic modules, terminals and connectors and wiring which form the main building blocks of the vehicles electrical system. Due to increased design complexity, higher functional content and reduced development times, automotive electrical engineering is rapidly moving towards full virtual prototyping. This requires an automotive supplier to stay on the forefront of computer aided engineering technology.

Lear’s state-of-the-art tool suite known as the Lear Virtual Proving Grounds allows Lear electrical engineers to optimize electrical designs in the virtual world through rapid design iteration prior to building any physical parts for testing. The Lear Virtual Proving Grounds provides the platform to simulate and predict electrical and mechanical performance of the electrical system with a high degree of accuracy by utilizing proprietary algorithms and materials databases developed in house.

Lear electrical engineers know that you can’t test quality into a part. The system and components need to be robust by design. The Lear Virtual Proving Grounds enables Lear electrical engineers to analyze the electrical system from a “whole system” standpoint to deliver intelligent and optimal solutions that meet a customer’s technical objectives much more rapidly than a “build and test” methodology.
