To develop complex features, all your engineering disciplines need to work perfectly together throughout the development cycle. Otherwise, design is often done with outdated or missing information, increasing the risk that errors won’t be caught until prototypes are built.
Bring systems, people and data together.
Improve data accuracy by up to 95% with a common source of requirements, targets and issues from concept through product validation and production.
Choose the best design upfront using real-world data to automatically assess thousands of configurations and reduce time spent for CAE analysis by up to 80%.
Design changes can be simulated across all disciplines before implementation to ensure software and hardware are always in sync to help cut development time in half.
Integrate mechanical, electronic and electrical design throughout the development process, from product definition, to concept, to development, to verification and validation.
There are three key paths to build a digital backbone. Where you start will vary on your digital maturity.
The top 95% of automotive electronic control unit (ECU) suppliers leverage Siemens software.
The top 23 global automotive OEMs have adopted Siemens Xcelerator.
The top 20 electric vehicle brands leverage Siemens Xcelerator.

Optimize your returns by driving innovation and accelerating productivity across the enterprise with our product development solutions.
Accelerate product development using the Siemens suite of tools and solutions that are designed to help automotive manufacturers speed up the product development process. It includes a range of software tools, simulation and testing capabilities, and data management solutions.
To do this, you need to implement a digitalization strategy that enables your teams to work in sync. When working in the context of each other, changes propagate to all people. With a single source of truth, everyone has access to up-to-date information, allowing them to quickly and automatically generate, explore and assess many design options. This enables you to eliminate the number of costly physical prototypes that need to be built. The best configuration for your targets and requirements are discovered in the shortest possible time
You need to accelerate the design exploration process using a simulation environment that enhances collaboration. Then you can automatically generate multiple designs so that you can identify the most competitive and compliant configuration.
Even after you’ve identified the best design, things will continue to change. This means you need to have constant insight into the implications of those changes across all domains. Through continuous verification and validation of your product design from conceptualization, until the design is finalized and the first physical prototype is built, you can be confident that your product will meet all requirements and targets.
