Five Japanese automobile manufacturers (SUBARU, TOYOTA MOTOR, Nissan Motor, Honda Motor, and Mazda Motor) and five parts manufacturers (AISIN, JATCO, DENSO, Panasonic, and Mitsubishi Electric) will be filling the role of executive member in the Japan Automotive Model-Based Engineering center (JAMBE), which went public on September 24th, 2021. JAMBE’s mission is to promote Model-Based Development (MBD) across Japan’s automotive industry.
MBD is a development style that uses virtual models on a computer, not using actual prototype parts throughout design and development activities to realize efficient development activities by saving considerable time and effort that would usually be spent elaborating performance concepts, designing, making prototype parts, and testing.
The center was founded to fulfill the purpose of creating the most-advanced development community in the mobility sector, able to carry out optimal and high-grade monozukuri efficiently and without rework.
Executive member companies will lead the center’s activities to contribute to making Japan’s automotive industry more competitive internationally by enabling academia and businesses to share digital models across the board, linking academic research with development of parts, systems and vehicles. Therefore, allowing both sides to coordinate and make adjustments (suriawase in Japanese) digitally from the initial stages of development.
