Accelerating product development by getting it right the first time
Modern electric and traditional vehicle demands are forcing automotive manufacturers to accelerate their development processes. Automotive manufacturers must streamline their development processes to improve vehicles' performance and reduce development times.

Traditionally, different engineering disciplines come together at specific milestones during vehicle development. However, working in isolation like this leads to significant redesigns and delays— something that automotive manufacturers could absorb by producing only one or two new models per year. This is too inefficient to meet the growing demands for next-generation vehicles. With comprehensive digital twins, design teams can avoid major redesigns by collaborating earlier and more regularly throughout a project, saving time and money.
Building more physical prototypes would add costs and inefficiencies to a project. With accurate simulations, teams can easily share as they focus on their areas of responsibility. By producing a comprehensive digital twin, engineers can understand precisely how their components will perform when integrated with others. And through continuous verification and validation processes, they can ensure that even the first prototype works as planned.
