Tire performance optimization through virtual technology
New product development (NPD) is a key process for all tire groups and the NPD time is crucial. Virtual technologies enable you to launch world-class products faster and more cost-effectively than ever. TIC has developed a unique virtual technology implementation concept. It would be useful for all tire manufacturers to have an efficient and effective virtual technology process. TIC's key motto is 'Speed to market with the right solution and innovation'. The main points include how to establish virtual technology, how to start simulation, tire engineering enhancement, and model validation and verification, amongst others.
