Build the right product and build the right product by making smarter decisions in automotive product development.
Automotive original equipment manufacturers need to manage the global industry product complexity, therefore need a system to drive the product development process, the process will all develop in the field of system engineering method is combined with the integration of the product definition. Siemens PLM Software collaborative decision support platform through all the interdisciplinary knowledge integration to a position available for authorized users to access logic, implements the system drive car product development, no matter they’re in the organization is located in all over the world.
Key elements of this approach include:
A consistent process framework based on system engineering.
Cross-attribute simulation and test based validation.
Problem, change and schedule management.
Traceability throughout the life cycle.
All built on an open foundation.
By applying a consistent process framework based on systems engineering, you can begin to capture, manage, and organize information and knowledge from the customer’s voice, and continue to service, support, and discard. By modeling requirements and assigning them to physical implementation through functional and logical decomposition, you will achieve a significant level of traceability throughout the vehicle. For system modeling can fully understand the dependencies in the model, and help promote the alignment, and implement engineering fields (such as material, body, chassis, external, internal, powertrain, electrical/electronics and software integration) between the traceability.
Cross-attribute simulation and test to protect the balance between different key design attributes. The auto industry in reduce engine size, improve the powertrain technology, and provide solutions for hybrid and electric faces major challenges, while still would be focused on by the higher levels of overall performance and efficiency to reduce weight and enhance the brand value. Siemens PLM Software offers a variety of a peacekeeping three-dimensional simulation and testing tools, each step in design (including interior, chassis, powertrain, body, electronics and vehicle integration) in the optimization of the balance.
Different products for automotive OEM, unified material list (BOM) and the list of process (BOP) is critical to success, even more important is to make these different views consistent semantics, such as usage and product structure. Once these alignment is established, the information backbone can drive the integration process, such as end-to-end configuration and change management.
The Siemens PLM Software solution is based on open standards, enabling integration between applications, as well as integration between traditional data and systems and other third-party applications. This allows you to flexibly implement the required business processes, even if you take full advantage of the best applications and bring together works from different authoring environments and authors. Throughout the process, everyone will use a single source of information.
Siemens PLM Software system drives automobile product development solution for you:
Track the customer’s voice throughout the development process, keeping the decision consistent with the product’s strategic intent to provide the product the customer needs.
Multi – attribute design optimization is carried out through simulation, and model verification is carried out through testing.
Reduce rework by continuously analyzing and validating vehicle, system or component performance.
Reduce the time and cost of the entire design of the composite material to the manufacturing process.
End-to-end integration ensures that everyone in the vehicle domain can get the right information when needed to create products that best meet customer requirements.
