Siemens Digital Industries Software
Drive innovation and productivity in test-based engineering
The Simcenter family, part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, by Siemens Digital Industries Software, supports performance engineering departments with simulation and test solutions for balanced vehicle performance under the challenges of eco pressure (fuel economy and emissions reduction measures, and lightweight) and mechatronic systems innovation (safety, advanced driving assistance systems, driving comfort, and driving pleasure).
In the digital era, it remains crucial to test, validate and optimize real-world designs within the constraints of shorter testing cycles, conflicting performance requirements, growing product complexity and reduced costs.
Over the last few decades, the variety of vehicle models, motor types, configurations and options per brand has exploded. Car manufacturers have introduced new powertrain architectures, innovated materials, and invented functionalities for safety and autonomous driving. This dramatically increases the validation testing workload, including new tasks that are specific to digital technologies and electric vehicles. Therefore, physical testing continues to play a crucial role during early development, even though a growing number of companies are digitalizing the process.
