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.
