Simplify the complex vehicle development process with an MBSE approach

In this competitive market, automotive industry leaders must rapidly deliver on customer demands and governmental regulatory requirements. To provide vehicle designs that meet customers' and regulatory bodies' expectations and performance requirements, automotive OEMs and suppliers need to align on an integrated model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach with vehicles as a system of systems and software to remain innovative and competitive.

Use a comprehensive digital twin in the vehicle development process

Automakers that implement an MBSE approach with coherent model-based dataflows for the development of smart vehicles will be equipped with the critical capabilities they need to remain competitive. This approach allows functional models of systems to be designed and refined throughout the process as engineers optimize details across the product lifecycle. Engineers can digitally simulate, test, and optimize system intent by combining these functional models to build a system's realistic, comprehensive digital twin.

Accelerate innovation through software-driven vehicle development

A collaborative, traceable systems engineering approach enables a shared vision and organizational accountability and provides the flexibility and quality needed for accelerated software-driven innovation. Automotive businesses that consider software-driven vehicle features focusing on architectural impacts on electromechanical systems early in the vehicle development process will reign supreme. At the same time, more extensive collaboration across teams will allow them to introduce vehicles with the higher quality features that customers demand and attain a market leadership position.
