Siemens Expands Capital Electrical Software
Integrated capabilities can be used to design and assess E/E systems and enables support for integrated end-to-end model-based design, manufacturing and service domains.
June 17, 2020
Siemens Digital Industries Software announced an expanded Capital electrical/electronic (E/E) systems development software portfolio. The solution has been expanded to encompass E/E system and software architectures, network communications and embedded software development, according to the company. As part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, Capital is integrated with adjacent Siemens solutions, including the Teamcenter PLM, NX software for mechanical design, and Mendix low-code development environments.
Modern E/E systems are characterized by a huge growth in complexity and depend on integrated electrical, electronic and software systems for innovation, while demanding robust verification & traceability.
To effectively manage the interconnected challenges of modern electrical/electronic design, Capital encompasses E/E systems architecture, electrical systems, communication networks and embedded software. It supports integrated end-to-end model-based design, manufacturing and service domains to transform quality and reduce costs, Siemens says. According to the company, “Strategic integrations with Siemens’ model-based systems engineering (MBSE), MCAD, product lifecycle management (PLM), simulation and manufacturing solutions help enable a comprehensive digital twin of the whole product. These integrations deliver requirements management, multi-domain functional modeling, software simulation, application lifecycle management and manufacturing plant simulation.”
“Siemens continues to be on the forefront of bringing together formerly siloed disciplines required to develop and support today’s smart, connected products,” said Craig A. Brown, Executive Consultant, CIMdata. “By integrating Capital with these technologies, Siemens is providing companies a system-wide view of their products allowing them to economically achieve the performance and quality their customers require.”
According to Siemens, the end-to-end capture and definition of the E/E system functionality enables the creation of a comprehensive digital twin for early simulation and verification. This allows organizations to shift their verification and validation earlier in the product development process.
“Over the last two decades the Capital portfolio has been strategically expanded to meet the needs of innovative organizations that are ushering in the future of E/E systems development in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, marine and industrial machinery,” said Martin O’Brien, senior vice president of Siemens’ Integrated Electrical Systems business. “Companies have realized significant tangible benefits when they deploy Capital for the development of electrical systems, networks and embedded software.”
