The production of arbitrary complex geometries in forming processes requires a certain effort of production planning. This includes cost and time aspects. In this context simulation is an essential point to minimize development cycles. Within simulations an optimization potential can be generated. Therefore the paper deals with strategies of improvements in efficiency of forming processes under the usage of LS-DYNA. The parameters which can be adjusted may have an influence in respect of duration and accuracy of the results.

The paper describes in which way afore identified parameters on the chosen forming simulation have an effect. Also it indicates the impact of a variation of some parameters
