Electric Vehicle

Moving electric vehicle manufacturing into the fast lane

As demand increases, established and startup automotive manufacturers need to quickly ramp-up EV production and reduce manufacturing costs to take advantage. EV manufacturing, however, presents unique challenges to automotive companies. By leveraging comprehensive digital twins of the product and production lines, manufacturers can design and validate assembly processes and entire facilities virtually, improving quality and accelerating production ramp.


Make an engineering impact on Electric Vehicle with the digital twin

Creating a digital twin of the product and the production can solve the challenges of EV manufacturing by blurring the boundaries between design and manufacturing, merging the physical and digital worlds.

Digitalization has become a necessity in order to support the rapid pace of innovation and the complexity in today’s automotive market, including electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing.

A comprehensive digital twin enables you to plan and implement manufacturing processes for new lightweight designs and modular vehicle platforms while reducing the costs of battery production and coordinating across your deep supplier ecosystems.

Automobile development is facing multiple challenges arising out of electrification, regulation and evolving customer preferences. OEMs and suppliers have to develop new products in lesser time and at lesser cost. Siemens and DDS enable innovation processes to support rapid development of new products.

The recent and rapid growth of electric vehicles (EVs) is driven by several factors
  • Key EV technologies, such as batteries, are improving faster than expected
  • Greater regulatory pressure at national, regional and city levels is driving early adoption of what is perceived to be a new norm
  • Intense investment into EV programs and startup companies from a variety of sources, both traditional automotive companies and new entrants to the market
  • A growing network of EV charging stations makes it easier and more convenient to use an EV every day
