Generative design for electric vehicle E/E systems

Reading time: 19 minutes

New electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers are flooding the market while established OEMs divert more investment to EV programs to stay ahead. Generative design will be a crucial enabler for new and established automotive companies as they develop all-electric vehicle platforms. Those that can most effectively integrate the advanced technologies needed for all-electric powertrains into a reliable, safe, attractive package and get to market quicker will be the winners in this disruptive technology.

Read the white paper to discover the benefits of generative design and how it empowers automotive engineers to tackle the significant challenges of E/E design for EVs.

Generate proposals for the E/E system with rules-based automation

Generative design uses system definitions and requirements as input and generates architectural proposals for the logic, software, hardware, and networks of the electrical and electronic systems using rules-based automation. Design teams can manage design complexity by employing rules-based automation throughout the design process without increasing time-to-market.

Automation helps engineers focus on the most critical aspects of the design and verification of the functionality of the E/E system. It empowers them to focus more on applying their creativity and ingenuity to create the next generation of breakthroughs in automotive technology.

Capture the knowledge of veteran engineers with generative design

Rules-based automation captures the knowledge and experience of veteran engineers to guide younger engineers throughout the design. Capturing this intellectual property helps companies develop vehicle architectures and new generations of engineers as they learn and apply existing company knowledge.

Ensure data continuity throughout production with generative design

Generative design ensures data continuity from initial system definitions through production and after-sales for full traceability and compliance.

Data continuity has several advantages. It ensures that projects have a single data source that provides a clear picture of the numerous inter-domain and inter-system interactions. And data continuity enhances the engineer’s ability to analyze the impact of design changes.
