Accelerated Product Development for the Automotive Industry

Close up of a braking system of a fast moving future car.

Today, automotive manufacturers are being challenged to bring new products, including electric, autonomous, connected, and shared mobility, to market faster than ever. To accelerate product development, designers and engineers must be enabled to: generate and assess thousands of potential design configurations upfront; select the most competitive features to develop; and validate them virtually to prevent design errors before physical prototypes are built. Siemens’ Accelerated Product Development is an open, integrated, and scalable software solution enabling OEMs, suppliers, and new manufacturers to revolutionize development processes through CAD, CAE, simulation, and PLM technologies that work seamlessly together and with third party applications.

Meet targets and ensure compliance

When a prototype fails, it is often because internal disciplines are designing with different information, outdated information, or no information at all. To ensure that all systems will work together as planned at any point during development, domain teams need to collaborate continuously with each other. This collaboration revolves around a single source of universally accessible information, a digital backbone, that provides up-to-date information on exactly what the product is supposed to do and how it’s supposed to work. With this digital backbone, automakers can manage and validate information, track issues, and ensure that the vehicle is compliant to regulations, requirements, and targets across all domains.

Automatically generate the best design upfront

In traditional automotive development, innovation can be a tedious, costly, and iterative process that only allows limited exploration of design configurations before time runs out. Manufacturers can strengthen innovation with a solution that combines CAD and CAE with machine learning, artificial intelligence, and automated simulation to generate and assess many designs rapidly, saving valuable time and resources. This automated process ensures that the winning design incorporates the most competitive features while meeting business targets and vehicle specifications.

Validate products and systems virtually

With Siemens’ solutions for Accelerated Product Development, engineering changes to one domain are communicated effortlessly to the rest of the domains. For example, a design change to the mechanical system would automatically trigger a notification to the electrical, electronic, software, and controls systems. Simulation can then be employed to identify and correct design errors between domains. Automakers save time and money by validating a digital twin of the entire vehicle virtually before building physical prototypes, ensuring that they won’t face delays for redesign, testing, and rework. By continuously validating every system in the context of every other system, manufacturers can accelerate the development of high-quality, next-generation vehicles and get it right the first time.
