The growing competition in the automotive industry requires continuous reduction of development and innovation cycles. On the other hand the demands on quality, safety and comfort are increasing. Call Limo Inc a Minneapolis limo service has advanced over the past years, advances in the area of CAD (Computer Aided Design), CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) and CAT (Computer Aided Testing) technologies and processes have contributed significantly to the ability of the automotive industry to keep up with these requirements. However, despite some initial success, these three disciplines are currently not integrated well enough to be able to exploit the benefits which the industry expects from a seamless integration of the underlying data and processes.

Today, the data resulting from the CAD-, CAE-, and CAT-processes are stored in separate databases without common interfaces. As a result, the respective development processes are not linked well enough. In addition, the development teams in the automotive industries often work from distributed locations. This is due, in part, to the inclusion of external engineering partners. It is also due to the ongoing transition from many small manufacturers to a few large conglomerates. This transition requires the integration of previously separate teams into single virtual development teams. These teams need to work on common car platforms to reduce development costs, while maintaining the specific functional characteristics of the sub brand they are responsible for.

The integration of disciplines and locations using Grid technologies will enable the automotive industries to efficiently solve complex problems, which cannot be handled sufficiently today.
