Siemens PLM Software announced its technology enabled the development and manufacture of more than 90 percent of the vehicles that top selling automakers exhibited at the 80th International Motor Show in Geneva.
Siemens PLM Software’s technology is used by automakers and suppliers to collaborate, plan, design, and validate the development and manufacturing engineering of vehicles. The tools satisfy the needs of leading automakers for managed collaboration across engineering functions and throughout the extended supply chain. By breaking down barriers between engineering functions, providing real-time access to information, and performing analysis and simulation, Siemens claims it has delivered double-digit efficiency improvements.
The vehicles of tomorrow, as evidenced by those revealed at this year’s Geneva show, will be differentiated by intelligent features that integrate mechanical functions with electronic controls, driven by software and connected by physical wiring. Consumer’s demand for a connected vehicle, with increased safety and convenience features is driving increased vehicle complexities. Because of these demands, the number of embedded software systems, which currently make up 70-90% of all automotive innovations, are predicted to increase another 30-40% in the next three years.
Siemens PLM Software’s solutions allow the automotive industry to more effectively integrate a company’s mechanical, electrical, electronic and software domains to develop more complex, differentiated vehicles that consumers want to drive.
