Integrated EV Development from Concept to Certification
3DEXPERIENCE provides an integrated environment to develop electric vehicles from concept to certification. Developing a new electric platform requires expertise spanning multiple physics domains including structures, fluids, electromagnetism and beyond. SIMULIA IPEs can help OEMs deliver higher performing, more durable, stylish vehicles faster. This talk will show how the 3DEXPERIENCE platform integrates the entire EV development process from early concept development all the way through detailed engineering and product launch. Highlights include:
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform empowers multi-physics simulation as well as coordination across OEM departments to improve the quality and speed of developing electric vehicles through all stages of product development.
