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.

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Body Design & Engineering

Leverage an integrated automotive body systems design, simulation, and manufacturing solution in a managed environment to help you respond quickly to changing market demands.

Automotive Chassis Design

We provide an integrated platform for chassis design, engineering simulation, and manufacturing validation of chassis parts. Our solution helps you achieve high-performance design, simulation, documentation, tooling, and manufacturing of chassis systems.

Automotive Concept Design & Styling

Our tools for concept design, reverse engineering, and high-end rendering give you the power and freedom to push your creativity, all in one system.

Automotive Interior & Exterior Trim Design Solution

Stay ahead of the competition with a comprehensive interior and exterior trim design toolset. Work within the context of the entire vehicle or subsystem to create high-quality molded components and decorative panels.

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.

Generative Engineering

A generative design process is one that engineers can adopt to quickly develop new products based upon meeting design constraints. It is an iterative process that produces fast results the engineer can refine via constraint variation to narrow in on the best design to meet the requirements.

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
