Time compression design with decision support for intelligent transport systems deployment
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe time-to-market of a product is related to the time used in the design process of the product. This is particularly important in fast developing areas of intelligent transport systems (ITS) and products. More powerful design toolkits using advanced computers and software design are helping to shorten time-to-market with improved ITS products. The key to achieving these improvements is a methodology called Time Compressed Product Design And Optimisation (TOPDO). Based on the methodology, a state of the art software and computer framework has been developed for automating the design process, optimising integrated designs through rapid product modelling and analysis, performing systems simulation and capturing a knowledge base for devices, products and systems. This paper focuses on aspects of the computer framework based TOPDO technique that presents the design process as a total systematic framework.
