Explore the key areas of this solution.
Empower your powertrain design team with the control and flexibility of 2D and 3D wireframe, surface and solid modeling technology, all driven by parametric feature-based and direct modeling techniques.
Save time and reduce errors by designing powertrain components in the context of the larger design in a fast multi-CAD environment.
Create modern hybrid and electrical powertrains that meet customer and regulatory demands. Package your wiring, circuit boards, and other data in complex assemblies. Validate and share data between disciplines.
Create the powertrain 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 powertrain 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 powertrain design knowledge with codeless graphical tools with advanced templates.
Identify potential issues early, before the cost and time needed to fix them increases. By continuously validating your powertrain design against requirements, you can get it right the first time.
Identify powertrain design issues early in the development cycle with 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.
Stricter fuel economy and emissions regulations are driving automakers and suppliers to develop more efficient powertrains and vehicles at an unprecedented rate. Companies are pursuing new propulsion technologies such as hybrid electric and electric vehicle with different configurations – from mild hybrid implementations, to range extender, to full hybrid architectures and electrification programs.
Efforts to improve the internal combustion engine and transmission continue, as well as other improvements in drivelines, driveline components and engine controls. Vehicle teams must collaborate closely with powertrain engineers to reduce energy demands throughout the vehicle, including lightweighting, improving aerodynamics and other elements.
Our solutions provide a state-of-the-art modeling environment to help you achieve key powertrain design objectives for performance, fuel economy, durability and responsiveness, all while meeting ever-tightening emissions standards. Our automotive powertrain design solutions include best-in-class, integrated functionality for systems modeling, computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE) and product data management (PDM) for all of your powertrain initiatives.
