Changing consumer preferences and regulatory pressures are forcing automotive companies to find new ways to improve vehicle aerodynamics, enhance visual appeal, and increase interior space. All of these profoundly impact the body systems design and engineering processes. The sequential approach to vehicle development — where body styling, structural engineering and development, and manufacturing processes are separate functional disciplines that hand off each step of the process — is giving way to a more integrated method. Today, automotive companies rely on a systems-driven approach for automotive body engineering and manufacturing, which brings all aspects of car body design together in a holistic fashion and makes it easy to trace requirements —customer, regulatory, legal, and others — throughout the design process with constant validation.

Siemens PLM Software provides a comprehensive automotive body systems design, simulation, and manufacturing solution in a managed environment that helps you get immediate access to key product information. You can respond much more quickly to changing market demands, function efficiently while being geographically dispersed, and collaborate effectively during the body systems design process.

Solution Capabilities

Automotive Design

Create the automotive designs of the future with an advanced, fully-integrated design and manufacturing solution. Work easily with partners, utilize existing knowledge, and validate your design while you create it.

CAE Simulation

Accurately predict equipment and process performance, and enhance engineering’s flexibility and throughput with a unified, shared 3D platform for all simulation disciplines.

Composite Design and Manufacturing

Automatically generate composite manufacturing data — such as flat patterns and data to drive automated cutting machines, laser projection systems, fiber placement machines, and tape laying machines — and share it downstream and across the enterprise

Design Interoperability

Our solutions enable collaboration throughout the development process in order to prevent conflicts and ensure alignment between each system prior to design completion.

Digital Mockup

Use real-time digital mockup tools to detect and resolve medical device design issues using the product’s digital twin early in your product lifecycle.  Distribute the universally viewable information to other key team members to annotate concerns or incorporate alternative design concepts for better, more effective products.

Fastening & Joint Design

Efficiently author, validate and communicate fastener definition in complex body assemblies, especially those related to critical joints and historically complex locations.definition.

Industrial Design & Styling

Enable auto designers and stylists to create high quality surfaces in a seamlessly integrated Class-A surface development environment with direct point manipulation, feature-based modeling, and continuous real-time validation.

Integrated BOM Management

Consolidate and coordinate design, manufacturing, and service views of bills of material for powertrain designs. Enable powerful configuration tools, building sophisticated product variants based on customer and global design requirements.

Knowledge Reuse

Optimize liquid flow and thermal transfer in lubrication and fuel systems, as well as combustion gas simulation, and mixed gas/liquid interaction to increase power transmission system durability and power output.
