Benchmarking

With more than 10 years of experiences in the field of design and functional benchmarking of overall vehicles as well as individual systems and components, fka is one of the leading benchmarking authorities in the automotive industry.

Mit mehr als 10 Jahren Erfahrung im Bereich Design und Funktions-Benchmarking von Gesamtfahrzeugen sowie einzelnen Systemen und Komponenten ist die fka eines der führenden Benchmarking-Unternehmen in der Automobilindustrie.

Prototype construction/special constructions

Today, the development of innovative vehicles is largely carried out with the help of numerical and virtual tools. Nevertheless, at specific points in the development process it is necessary to physically construct test vehicles in order to validate virtually gained knowledge and to secure it in the form of test bench tests.

Prototypenbau/Sonderkonstruktionen

Die Entwicklung innovativer Fahrzeuge erfolgt heute in hohem Maße mit Hilfe numerischer und virtueller Tools. Dennoch ist es an spezifischen Punkten des Entwicklungsprozesses erforderlich, Versuchsträger auch physisch aufzubauen um virtuell gewonnene Erkenntnisse zu validieren und in Form von Prüfstandsversuchen abzusichern.

Established Benchmarking Competences

In the context of numerous bilateral projects, fka is established as a renowned partner for processing benchmarking analyses in the automotive industry.

Based on our expertise and experience in design and functional benchmarkings, future recommendations are derived for our customers and their products. In the field of overall vehicles as well as on component level, our clients benefit from our comprehensive testing infrastructure, which allows a customised analysis of the particular component or vehicle.

The components and vehicles can be modelled with different CAE methods and optimised for further product developments. For example thermal, mechanical or electrical energy flows can be modelled and control strategies can be optimised. By reverse engineering methods and FEA meshing, overall vehicles as well as single components (e.g. crash management system) can be analysed. Thus benchmarking results provide suitable opportunities for the enhancement of innovative systems and components.
