A global power generation OEM that manufactures gas turbine engines.

Business challenges

  • No discretization of complex gas turbine peripheral components such as air duct, oil duct, and fuel duct assemblies, hindering the ability to perform dynamic analysis and produce better design models
  • Knowledge gaps leading to suboptimal use of software like Ansys, Hypermesh, and Unigraphics
  • 25% longer time to market than peers

Genpact solution

Instituted Finite Element (FE) modeling and simulation to:

  • Implement geometry cleanup
  • Perform component discretization
  • Validate load and boundary conditions
  • Perform dynamic analysis/reporting
  • Meet technical and schedule requirements

Business impact delivered

  • 5% decrease in the design and development cost
  • Fewer design iterations through proactive quality measures
  • Ability to modify designs to suit manufacturability adding flexibility
