Vehicle electrification and E/E systems development

The content and complexity of E/E systems are experiencing another step change due to vehicle electrification. Due to falling battery prices, electric vehicle (EV) sales will outpace traditional vehicle sales in the next decade, adding a significant amount of E/E content and thus weight and complexity relative to a non-electrified vehicle. Fortunately, Siemens Vehicle Electrification solution address significant challenges electrical system designers face at automotive OEMs, wire harness manufacturers, and automotive suppliers — Download the infographic to learn more.

Driving optimized E/E architectures with vehicle electrification

There are three areas to consider when optimizing E/E system architectures for electric vehicles: integration, safety assurance, and simulation and verification. Integrating E/E engineering disciplines early in the design process minimizes late design changes that can delay development, simultaneously incurring costs. Ensuring proper separation between signals with signal routing while maintaining complete traceability from the system implementation and testing back to the design requirements will help enhance E/E system safety. And lastly, using simulation to verify the E/E system implementation early and often helps ensure correct-by-construction designs and eliminate costly iterations.

Implement a comprehensive digital twin to maintain an advantage in the growing market

By building a virtual representation of a physical product or process called a digital twin, automotive companies can reduce the number of physical prototypes with a digital twin of the product, thus reducing costs. By integrating a collaborative approach, a digital twin can also be used to drive cross-domain engineering integration with a secure digital backbone to update or share specifications and regulations with the entire ecosystem. And by utilizing a manufacturing digital twin, automotive manufacturers can cut change over time and increase efficiency to incorporate new technologies faster than the competition.

Benefits of using Capital for E/E Systems Development

Siemens Vehicle Electrification solution helps automotive companies of all sizes optimize E/E system architectures using digital twins that provide organizations with new insights, opportunities, and levels of automation to drive innovation. By utilizing the most comprehensive and accurate digital twin, automotive manufacturers and suppliers can manage their vehicle development programs through an integrated approach. By doing so, the development process stays connected and thus considerably shortened, which will allow them to bring new vehicles to market faster than ever, with higher quality and at a reduced cost.
