Manufacturers testing an EV battery pack of an electric vehicle using a fast-charging station.

Existing automotive OEMs, suppliers, and electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing startups alike must find ways to get into production quickly to build batteries and electric vehicles at scale, with reduced risk and fewer errors. Digitalization in manufacturing is vital for those already in the electric vehicle manufacturing race or those looking to get in. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn how Siemens manufacturing solutions can help your electric vehicle manufacturing business in key areas, such as:

  • Light weighting of vehicles with electrified powertrains
  • Battery pack manufacturing and assembly
  • Electric vehicle platform planning and production

Reduce risks and optimize advancements in EV manufacturing with integrated software solutions

Beyond the obvious changes required to design an electric vehicle, manufacturers are trying to anticipate the necessary changes in manufacturing to support the efficient and cost-effective production of these complex vehicles. As manufacturers shift towards native EV platforms, we expect the assembly processes to shift towards a more modular build environment with an increased number of purchased components. This will inevitably drive changes within manufacturing and assembly methodologies, processes, and tools to evolve to support modular build scenarios that rapidly adapt to changing market conditions. In today's global market, the reuse of knowledge gained during production using integrated solutions will be imperative to support ramp-up in other productions facilities.

Leveraging the digital twin to attain highly efficient production and product advancements

The digital twin is a virtual model of a product or production assets as they evolve through their lifecycle and are used to predict behavior, optimize performance, and apply lessons learned from previous design and production experiences. Using the digital twin as a verification and validation (V&V) tool is essential for today's complex electric vehicles and EV production systems. The performance digital twin captures physical asset performance data from products and plants in operation. Data from smart connected products in the field and factory equipment would be aggregated, analyzed, and transformed into actionable information to create a completely closed-loop decision environment for continuous optimization.
