You create innovative concepts and prototype software tools to support high-tech machine and vehicle designs by computational modelling

Manufacturing companies are looking forward to take the next step towards an innovative design process. As the time-to-market is becoming increasingly important, companies want to find a way to make early design decisions and save time, e.g. by sharing design parameters between engineering departments or by finding design synergies in product families.

 

Propose beyond state-of-the-art computational modelling

You will:

  • Work together in a small research team combining expertise in CDS, model-driven engineering, optimisation techniques, mechatronic & structural design;
  • Work on challenging model-driven engineering problems and perform research into new methods, algorithms, frameworks, modelling languages & tools;
  • Push state-of-the-art software methods beyond the current limits;
  • Take the lead in developing prototype software for supporting design tools.

More concretely, for real-life industry designs of e.g. the landing gear of an airplane or a complex vehicle exhaust system…, you:

  • Characterise in a formal way the design space model (with objectives, constraints, design repository/component database…), integrating parameters such as manufacturability, total cost of ownership, performance…;
  • Use model-driven engineering and algorithms of computational design to automatically generate optimal high-performance design concepts;
  • Generate out-of-the box ideas to make the design space model smaller;
  • Check which solutions are technically feasible.

 

Bart, Software Research Engineer at Flanders Make: "When working on a new concept, I enjoy to puzzle out variants of existing tools, making sure they communicate correctly. When the industrial company finally adopts the solution, the data really come to life."

Additional comments

Flanders Make

Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. From our sites in Lommel, Leuven and Kortrijk, we stimulate open innovation through excellent research.

Our purpose: realising a top-level research network in Flanders that delivers full support to the innovation projects of manufacturing companies. In this way, we want to contribute to new products and production processes that help to realise the vehicles, machines and factories of the future.

Because of our unique position between industry and research, our teams combine application and system proficiency with technological and scientific knowledge.

We focus on 4 key competences, all based on modelling and virtualisation:

1. Decision & Control

2. Design and optimisation

3. Motion product specification, architecture and validation

4. Flexible assembly specification, architecture and validation
