Vehicle climate systems are central to more than just driver and passenger comfort. HVAC systems are categorized under two of the four measures for owner satisfaction by JD Power, Quality / Reliability and Appeal, which highlights their influence on both customer experience and product success.
Digital simulation enables better component choices for climate systems and improved HVAC system sizing and target development, along with any needed changes to the 3D geometry, early – when the design is still in work. Uncovering potential issues early in the product lifecycle, and making the necessary changes, is less costly and more effective, since, with the 3D geometry still changing, climate systems can be improved simultaneously, ensuring well-integrated solutions. The effects of changes on interrelated systems can easily be evaluated, ensuring that all system-wide goals are met.
