PLANO, Texas, March 11, 2008 – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that its software solutions were used for the design of the award winning Mazda CX-9 crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV).
The Mazda CX-9 was recently named the 2008 North American Truck of the Year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Additionally, the Mazda CX-9 was recently selected as Motor Trend’s 2008 Sport/Utility of the Year.
PLM software from Siemens PLM Software was used during various stages of the Mazda CX-9’s design, including research and development and production engineering. Specifically, NXTM I-deas® and NX ImagewareTM software were used for design and modeling Class-A surfaces which enabled seamless and rapid exchange between the detailed design engineering and styling divisions. Digital pre-assembly software and the 3D visualization capabilities in Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter® software portfolio were used to verify digital model design. Siemens PLM Software’s Tecnomatix portfolio of digital manufacturing software solutions enabled production process designing and verification through digital simulation.
“We congratulate Mazda on both of these prestigious industry distinctions and are proud to support them with innovative software solutions that support both the Mazda CX-9’s research and development and production engineering functions,” said Dave Shirk, executive vice president, Global Marketing, Siemens PLM Software.
The prestigious North American Truck of the Year award is determined by 48 automotive journalists from the United States and Canada and based on attributes such as innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.
The esteemed Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year award is determined by editorial staff at Motor Trend who conduct extensive off-road, street and track testing, and evaluate driving performance, safety and features. Each vehicle is evaluated against three simple criteria: superiority (engineering, design and utilization of resources); significance (impact on the market); and value. The Mazda CX-9 was selected among 11 contenders for the distinction.
