As the fundamentals of transportation move toward autonomous vehicles, competition is heating up. Automotive manufacturers are discovering that rapid vehicle electrification is crucial to their survival. And time-to-market for new products is becoming the battleground. In this white paper, CIMdata, a third-party strategic management consulting firm, outlines how Siemens’ solutions empower automotive manufacturers to accelerate vehicle electrification to rapidly develop and deliver products consumers want.
Use integrated E/E systems to shorten product development times
Automotive manufacturers can explore options for building virtual electrical prototypes faster rather than waiting for a physical prototype to be constructed. Siemen's solutions rapidly shorten electric vehicle (EV) product development times, despite introducing new energy and propulsion systems.
Leverage a digital twin to develop highly optimized E/E systems
Leveraging a generative digital twin to develop safe, secure, and highly optimized E/E systems to deliver efficient electric vehicles is critical. An "executable" Digital Twin results in not having to wait months to execute a physical prototype construction and test cycle. Executable Digital Twins improve understanding by exploring innovative design options using expansive "destructive" simulations, i.e., exposing weaknesses impacting a product's safety margins. This is especially significant when new EV propulsion technology is to be mass-produced for the first time.
Design and engineer new electric vehicle products faster
Siemens provides essential software and test solutions that enable automakers to design and engineer new EV products faster. EV startups are using the same solutions to challenge the status quo of where the critical path of electric vehicle development lies.
