Forsee Power is an industrial group specializing in smart battery systems for electric transport (LEV, trucks, buses, trains, marine vessels). A major commercial and industrial player in Europe, Asia, and North America, the Group designs, assembles and supplies energy management systems based on the most robust cells available on the market as well as provides installation, commissioning and on-site or remote maintenance.
Forsee Power also offers financing solutions (battery rental) through its participation in NEoT Capital and second life solutions for transport batteries. Driven by a high sense of innovation, customer satisfaction and operational excellence, our teams ensure customers enjoy safe, reliable, long-lasting and performant application-specific solutions, enabling a sustainable electromobility
The industrial field and electric transportation are the main target markets of Forsee Power, "among which electric transportation, as a key market, the booming development in the past few years has allowed us to establish a great advantage, especially the leading Chinese electric market makes us in manufacturing and R&D. We have gained many opportunities and resources.” said Frederic POUPEAU, general manager of Forsee Power, “From two-wheelers and three-wheelers, to heavy-duty vehicles such as trucks, buses, ships and trains, we can design and manufacture according to customer needs. Safe, reliable, long-lasting and high-performance smart battery systems.”
However, the market is changing rapidly. In order to meet the diverse needs of customers efficiently and with high quality, Zhongshan Forsee Power needs to speed up the pace of R&D and design, shorten the time to market, and control the cost and quality of products. In the process of meeting these challenges, Dassault Systèmes' SOLIDWORKS, Simulation, EPDM and a series of professional software gave them great help.
In-depth cooperation with ICT
The opportunity for the cooperation between Zhongshan Forsee Power and Dassault stems from the company's globalization strategy and the need for integration of technical resources. Mars CAO, deputy general manager of Zhongshan Forsee Power, recalled: "In October 2017, our R&D team in China began to contact Dassault Systèmes and its agent, ICT., Ltd., and started to establish cooperation in March 2018. Before that, we in France The headquarters has always selected Dassault Systèmes' series of software. Based on the good cooperation and trust established by both parties, and because Dassault has strong software products and technologies, we believe that their products will help us unify the global R&D platform and better meet the needs of customer and market needs.”
Mars also pointed out that ICT was chosen because it is the largest value-added reseller of Dassault Systèmes in South China. It has been widely recognized by the industry. "In addition, SOLIDWORKS has a broad user base both globally and domestically, which makes it easier for us to find the right talent."
Kinny RUN is one such R&D engineer who is very familiar with SOLIDWORKS and has been using SOLIDWORKS for ten years. "Through so many years of practice, I think this is a powerful software that meets the needs of our R&D engineers. It will always follow up on many actual requirements and suggestions from customers, and some of the functional requirements we feedback will also be in the next version." Kinny gave a very positive review.
Then he shared his actual use experience. "First of all, it is easy to learn and use, and the interface is intuitive and friendly. Second, the default value of its command parameter setting bar has greatly improved the efficiency of our drawing. More importantly, it has very powerful functions, such as sheet metal functions and motion functions. , especially the motion function can input data in dynamic format like Simulation, which can improve the communication efficiency between us and customers.”
Build an integrated design simulation platform
As an artifact to help manufacturers reduce costs and increase efficiency, virtual simulation has become more and more popular in the R&D process of the manufacturing industry in recent years. With the help of Dassault Systèmes' SOLIDWORKS, Simulation, EPDM and other products, Zhongshan Ouli has successfully built an integrated design simulation platform.
Design simulation is crucial to Zhongshan Ouli's product development. First, R&D engineers make design changes in SOLIDWORKS, and then quickly obtain simulation results through Simulation, which not only greatly shortens the R&D cycle, but also greatly reduces the workload of simulation engineers. "With Simulation, our simulation engineers can focus more on the system level of the product, rather than on the design of components," said Nicolas LIU, manager of Zhongshan Ouli Machinery. "More importantly, simulation engineers and R&D engineers can The collaborative design in the EPDM system has greatly improved the efficiency of our team collaboration."
The details of product development determine success or failure. The design itself is a process of repeated revisions. With the design and simulation integrated platform, the effect of design changes becomes more intuitive, which will help engineers focus on details and strive for excellence. Get more sense of accomplishment from your work. Nicolas explained: "Simulation has provided us with an essential help throughout the design cycle. Because our products have very high requirements in terms of structural strength, fatigue life under random vibration, etc., Simulation can present a very intuitive The analysis results, especially under the integrated design and simulation platform, the comparison effect is more intuitive and obvious.”
Nicolas also highlighted the topology function. He believes that the topology function is very suitable for the needs of engineers. After handing over the calculation tasks to the software, engineers can focus more on the construction of design ideas and the definition of boundary conditions.
Message From Customers
After so many years of practice, I feel that SOLIDWORKS is a powerful software that meets the needs of our R&D engineers. It will always follow up on many actual requests and suggestions from customers, and some of the functional requirements we have fed back will also be reflected in the next version. ---Kinny
