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. Siemens Digital Industries Software offers a wide range of products and services for the automotive industry, including accelerated product development solutions.
