Innovate Faster and More Efficiently for Competitive Advantage

It’s Time for an Evolution

Forward-thinking automotive manufacturers and suppliers are unleashing innovation to address:
Autonomous, electric, and connected and shared vehicles
Tech-driven competitors
Consumer demands for sustainability and personalization
Regulatory, globalization trends

Complexities Slow Down Product innovation

Teams Working in Siloes 
  1. It’s challenging to get a comprehensive, single source of truth around product design and development, especially when teams are geographically dispersed or working remotely

  2. Supply chain issues exacerbate silos; a lack of access to real-time shared knowledge about materials and parts availability slows innovation
Regulatory Landscape Rapidly Evolving
  1. Most organizations struggle to keep up with and meet emerging regulations. For example, new U.S. fuel efficiency rules will affect 2024 car models, which is a significant change [source: Automotive News]

  2. Enforcement of regulatory requirements is becoming stricter, resulting in increased violations, fines and criminal prosecution. [source: Siemens ebook]
Modern Competitors Have an Advantage
  1. Regulations and consumer demand are pushing for electrified vehicles, which are intricate and complex to design and build [source: Siemens WP]

  2. Electric vehicle startups have an IT infrastructure and software systems in place to rapidly innovate, compared with more traditional automakers
Autonomous Driving Adds to Complexity
  1. Multiple electronics, sensors, and software components must work together for safety, quality, and efficiency

  2. An enormous amount of data is necessary to build these autonomous vehicle capabilities; manufacturers and suppliers require a system that cohesively manages that data


Inability to Cost-Effectively Test Designs
  1. CAD programs and design systems only go so far in demonstrating how all the components work together

  2. Building prototypes or pre-production models for testing can be costly and time consuming
