LinkedIn +

PTC and Volkswagen Group have entered a partnership focused on the adoption of PTC’s Codebeamer application lifecycle management (ALM) solution to support software development for the next generation of electric vehicles from the Volkswagen Group and its brands.

An ALM solution like Codebeamer is an important tool for enabling the efficient development of software and to help ensure that the software components for different vehicles are planned, tested and released – the companies say.

PTC will work with Volkswagen Group on the transition to Codebeamer from pre-existing ALM tools and on the definition and implementation of software best practices for the automotive industry. Volkswagen Group’s use of Codebeamer is expected to inform future Codebeamer roadmap priorities and requirements to enable PTC to gain ALM market share in the automotive industry.

Codebeamer is expected to enable greater efficiencies in Volkswagen Group’s engineering practices for software requirements management, test management and release management as part of new EV development. As the relationship progresses, PTC and Volkswagen Group expect to scale the use of Codebeamer across multiple Volkswagen Group engineering teams to support the software development process.

“Volkswagen Group and its portfolio of brands produce some of the most iconic vehicles in the automotive industry, and PTC is thrilled to support their software development and electrification strategy with Codebeamer,” said Jim Heppelmann, chairman and CEO at PTC.

Klaus Blüm, head of IT products and architecture at Volkswagen Group, added, “Volkswagen Group views PTC as a strategic supplier for our Group-wide product development strategy, and we look forward to our work together to make Codebeamer a successful tool for our software development and vehicle engineering teams.”
