Explore the key areas of this solution.
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.
Empower your chassis design team with modeling control and flexibility using 2D and 3D wireframe, surface and solid modeling technology, all driven with parametric feature-based and direct modeling techniques.
Save time and reduce errors by creating body components in the context of the larger design in a fast multi-CAD environment.
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.
Improve communications and reduce rework by incorporating product and process information during body design with comprehensive 3D annotation tools that enable you to pass this information to downstream applications.
Maximize the value of your intellectual property by promoting platform, knowledge and skill reuse. Capture body design knowledge with codeless graphical tools with advanced templates.
Surpass customer expectations by delivering safe, lightweight vehicles that meet or exceed fuel economy standards using advanced composite materials for body design.
Efficiently author, validate and communicate fastener definition in complex body assemblies, especially those related to critical joints and historically complex locations.
Identify body design issues early in the development cycle using multi-discipline simulation within a single environment. Improving the design before detailed analysis leads to better, more robust designs.
Collaborate with automotive suppliers and partners worldwide with a single source of data, regardless of which CAD software they use.
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.
