Component engineering

Once the concept of the roof system is confirmed the component engineering team completes the serial development of each component.

The related components can be divided into the following sub-groups:

  • Kinematic linkage mechanisms for roof, tonneau cover and/or trunk lid
  • Cross member structures
  • Exterior roof panels and glazing
  • Canvas top cover, isolation and interior trim
  • Latching systems for roof, tonneau cover and/or trunk lid
  • Actuation systems for roof, tonneau cover and/or trunk lid
  • Sealing systems for roof, tonneau cover and/or trunk lid

Examples of software tools used in development:

  • MSC SIMDESIGNER for 2D/3D kinematic design
  • FEA tools like ABAQUS (linear and non-linear)
  • DCS for tolerance management
