Daimler to develop on one platform

Over 20 Daimler development centres will work on the Siemens platform

Global automotive manufacturer Daimler has selected CAD Software from Siemens as the standard for its worldwide vehicle development. Starting in the summer of 2012, Daimler will integrate work from over 20 development centres and its most important suppliers on a single product development platform.

With the decision for the NX CAD Software of Siemens, Daimler completes its current implementation of Teamcenter, the company’s product data management backbone. Based on this combination, the automotive manufacturer will establish digital collaboration from initial concept design, through simulation during design, down to proof of concept of design solutions. The consolidation of digital product information in one single data pool will facilitate new vehicle development further optimise the entire value chain.

“The combination of NX CAD software with our product data management system Smaragd, which is based on Teamcenter, will integrate our entire product creation process from design through production planning down to managing production machines,” said Bharat Balasubramanian, who is responsible for Daimler’s R&D product innovation and process technology.

Daimler has worked with Siemens’ Teamcenter software for collaborative product data management since the mid 90s. With NX CAD software from Siemens, Daimler will implement a computer-based tool for the entire product development process and therefore a solution for collaborative design, engineering and development work.

“Our CAD and PLM software will help manufacturers enhance their development processes and their production planning and therefore increase their productivity,” said Chuck Grindstaff, president and chief technology officer of Siemens PLM Software.
