Winter, T. and Thierfelder, S., "Cost Efficient R&D Strategies to Meet Future Portfolio Challenges," SAE Technical Paper 2017-01-1926, 2017.
Hatz is a medium sized engine manufacturer with a production volume of currently ~58000 engines per year and a rather diversified product portfolio. To be cost and time efficient in new and further developments of our engines a deep system knowledge is indispensable. In order to achieve this we use a strongly simulation based developing approach in combination with component and specially suited engine testing. This combines to a state-of-the art R&D process which helps us to overcome an increasingly cost challenging competition.
