The automotive industry is changing faster than ever. In the new age of automation and electrification, you'll find sensors, chips, and electronics at the heart of every vehicle. Vehicle complexity has skyrocketed while increasing concern over climate change, and shifting regulations means that it is more necessary than ever to respond quickly and efficiently to market changes. Experts Greg Roth, Solution Director at Siemens Digital Industries Software, and Tom Spangler, Marketing Manager at Siemens Digital Industries Software, will guide you through the digital tools needed to stay ahead of the competition in this on-demand webinar.
To stay ahead of challenging market trends, automotive manufacturers need a fully integrated, end-to-end design and engineering platform and digital thread backbone that seamlessly shares the most up-to-date information with everyone in the product ecosystem, guaranteeing complete traceability. Siemens Accelerated Product Development solution enables designers and engineers to get designs right the first time with a continuous virtual validation and verification system. Automated artificial intelligence helps to frontload to avoid wasting critical resources on building designs that fail, requiring costly and time-consuming rework by implementing a comprehensive digital twin. This means designers and engineers can explore more innovative ideas to boost product performance and quality.
New product development challenges require new next-generation design solutions. A revolution in changing design processes, simulation productivity, and additive manufacturing is generative design— engineering innovation with automated intelligent exploration. It allows for a combination of traditional technologies, such as feature modeling, and combines them with new technologies like design optimization and convergent modeling. Siemens Accelerated Product Development solution enables companies to leverage the power of new emerging manufacturing approaches to quickly identify and assess numerous innovative designs and select the concepts that match product requirement targets, such as performance, mass, cost, and manufacturing.
Innovation is picking up as the automotive industry shifts gears and moves toward the future. This, coupled with intensified competition from the tech giants and highly specialized start-ups, means that traditional design and engineering practices no longer cut it. Siloed data and disjointed workflows inhibit highly complex product development and slow innovation. Teams are left unsure of the most up-to-date requirements with multiple data sources, creating costly mistakes that cause delays and over-budget projects. With Siemens Accelerated Product Development solution, you can boost traceability and auditability and thoroughly assess designs across mechanical, electrical, and software domains to reduce time, cost, and errors in product development.
Watch this on-demand webinar to discover how Siemens Accelerated Product Development solution can help you deploy the digital tools needed to stay ahead of the competition.
