The transportation industry is changing rapidly with the growth of autonomous, electric, and other alternative powertrains. Regulatory pressure and customer preferences are the impetus for creating a new generation of lightweight vehicles with improved connectivity. While electric vehicles meet the need for reduced emissions and fossil fuel use, they also introduce new NVH and packaging challenges, as well as increased electro-mechanical complexity. Companies that can deliver this with robust interface design and infrastructure synergies will have a significant advantage.

Lightweight vehicles require less energy to move, helping meet customer and government requirements. Achieving lightweight designs that also meet safety standards and include the features customers want requires new materials, manufacturing techniques, and optimized designs. These diverse challenges require an integrated design solution that addresses all areas in a single package.

Design for Additive Manufacture

Additive manufacturing is becoming industrialized. NX enables you to scale from prototypes to mass production in one system with change management and requirements tracking.

Engineering Data Management for Automotive & Truck OEMs

An integrated system for engineering lifecycle management that leverages requirements management, secure supplier collaboration and an engineering management platform that combines mechanical, electronic, software and simulation data into a single collaborative environment.

Instrument Panel & HVAC Design

From concept to finished design and manufacturing, you can work in the context of the vehicle, perform electrical and mechanical routing, work seamlessly with ECAD solutions to integrate your electronic systems, and continuously validate against customer and regulatory requirements.

Mechanical Electronics Design

NX & Capital integration means data can be shared in a live “connected” mode. Changes can be captured and reconciled with live cross-probing between logical and harness with space reservation.produc

Modeling Technology Platform

Generative design in NX, which includes topology optimization, feature parameter optimization, and Convergent Modeling, is opening new design possibilities. An integrated modeling and simulation platform enables analysis of multi-domain systems.

Multi-Discipline Engineering Data Management

Auto suppliers can now manage multi-disciplinary engineering teams with an integrated system for engineering lifecycle management that leverages requirements management, secure supplier collaboration, and an engineering management platform in a single collaborative environment.
