Caresoft Global, a Detroit-based global engineering company specializing in automotive benchmarking and engineering solutions, has released its Iceberg Benchmarking System 3.0, the latest edition of the company’s platform for accessing and creating teardown data for full vehicles.

“Our customers have told us that while they can get significant benchmarking data from similar platforms, what they need most are system-level insights of the vehicles studied and recommendations regarding design efficiencies they can incorporate into their vehicles,” says Terry J. Woychowski, president of Caresoft Global.

“Data without critical insights will not provide the analytics necessary for OEMs to make sound decisions ensuring that they have optimized their systems and developed the fittest designs achievable. Customers want to be able to understand how the data can help them optimize their products and their businesses. By unlocking the power of focused benchmarking data — and letting companies put those insights to actionable use — the Iceberg Benchmarking System 3.0 stands to make a major impact on R&D and product development programs globally.”

According to Caresoft Global, Iceberg 3.0 takes data analysis to new heights with its advanced cross-referencing capabilities. Users can access Iceberg Benchmarking System 3.0 and compare data in fine detail, perform analytics, and export information in the format that suits them best. This system represents a significant advancement in data analysis, going beyond just being an upgrade to delivering a paradigm shift in how data is processed and understood.

The latest enhancements include:

  • A fully integrated Analytics Module that provides mass, material, and parts analytics for each vehicle and its configuration. All information in Iceberg is transformed into data points, including the entire electrical data catalog, to facilitate comparisons. Customizable exports allow users to configure the data as they wish and export it as spreadsheets.
  • A new Global System Wide Search, which offers granular insights and searches by vehicles, parts, or documents, as well as searches by materials used or the material subgroup. Standard parts can be viewed or removed, and parts can be cross-referenced across other studies to determine similar parts used in other vehicles.
  • Improved data management, allowing users to access many of the data packages that are organized in a hierarchical structure for better-benchmarking insights.
  • A Similar Parts feature allows users to discover similar parts across the vehicles and compare.

Iceberg 3.0 now offers users the ability to measure components with teardown photographs, and an improved online 3-D viewer, along with the ability to group vehicle structure by manufacturer or materials, hide standard parts from the structure, cross-reference parts across other advanced studies, and many such feature upgrades have helped users to view the data as they wish.
