Greg Morehouse - Managing Director, Motovated Design & Analysis
The use of simulation technologies such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimise component life both during design and to rectify problems is well established. Whether the analyst is an external consultant or direct hire however, implementing an effective analysis approach that truly drives business results remains a challenge for a lot of NZ companies.
In the first part of the presentation, the author shares insights and examples from direct experience leading analysis teams on how to dramatically increase both the quality and quantity of simulation output using a “Better by Analysis” approach. This methodology applies the rapid, self-correcting “Agile” and “Lean Product and Process Development” concepts to rigorous mechanical engineering analysis.
Greg set up Motovated in 1999 with a vision to “cost effectively engineer our client’s vision!" through the use of advanced techniques, superior tools, and boundless enthusiasm! Working for VW & Audi as a mechanic and with Boeing & Hercules Aerospace as an Engineering Analyst had provided Greg with 20+ years of real world design and analysis experience. It had also highlighted the need for a cost effective mechanical design service with an emphasis on analysis. As a private pilot Greg knew that design without analysis was like pilots without instruments; they can fly, but they might not know exactly where they are! Greg is a world-class analyst and provides training and advanced technical support to some of the FEA resellers in New Zealand.
