Aerolab S.r.l. specializes in automotive and aerodynamic testing for race cars. Founded in 2003 through a joint venture between FondTech and Dallara Automobili, Aerolab is now a wholly owned subsidiary of FondTech. The company creates scale models of racing vehicles that it tests in its wind tunnel—a 1,100 square-meter state-of-the-art facility. Aerolab can accommodate up to a 60% scale model for Formula 1 automobiles and up to a 50% scale model for enclosed wheel models.
To meet its clients’ needs for rapid and convenient access to model and aerodynamic testing data, Aerolab deployed Oracle AutoVue solutions. Aerolab can now easily share design and testing data with internal team members as well as clients, facilitating collaboration and eliminating the need for IT team members to intervene in this function. The solution, which enables team members and clients to view data regardless of which computer-aided design (CAD) software they are running, has also helped to reduce errors and cut paper consumption by 80%.
Aerolab deployed the AutoVue solutions on schedule, working with its implementation partner, Phylos.
