Concurrent Engineering (CE) is a systematic modern approach in manufacturing

Company. In this paper showen possibility application some elements Concurrent
Engineering in design technology process and used modern CAD/CAM/CAE
software with accept at manufacturing technology.

The big advantage, today, for implementing CE is the extensive development of

computer aided engineering. By using computer aided engineering all facets of the
product development process can access a same design and can innovate and improve
the design from the different disciplines by using a common computer aided
engineering database.

In this concept there are three main categories in database:

- CAD (Computer Aided design),
- CAE (Comuter Analysis and Simulation) and
- CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing)

In the concept concurrent engineering segment „Analysis and Simulation“ is very

important part. This segment have direct conection with two significants activaty
(Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing). At present day for
simulation technology process very a lot of using is Finite Elements Method and
simulationsoftware. Nonlinear analysis based on the finite element method (FEM) is
one essential component of computer aided design. Manufacturing and testing of
prototypes is increasingly being replaced by the use of nonlinear FE simulations
because it provides a more rapid and less expensive way to evaluate manufacturing
and design concepts. However, the use of nonlinear finite element technique requires
an understanding of the fundamental concepts.

Finite element (FE) simulations are used extensively in e.g. the sheet metal stamping
industry where the technology has contibuted to a better understanding of chosen
sheet metal forming processes and where the prediction capabilities has significantly
reduced the time consuming, inexact and costly die tryouts. However, the reliability
of the numerical simulations depends not only on the models and methods used but
also on the accuracu and applicability of the input data. The material model and
related property data must be consistent with the conditions of the material in the
process of interest. In Addition, creating as little deviance as possible betwen the FE
model and the experimental stup is a prerequisite for the correlation between
predicted and measured values. Naturally, difficulties regarding e.g. modelling and
estimations of friction arise, among others.
