Dassault Systèmes announced that BMW has selected its
V6 PLM solutions to develop the future electrical, electronics, and embedded
software (E/E) architecture of BMW cars.
BMW chose Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solution for thousands of
engineers because of its flexible PLM backbone, and the large degree of
out-of-the-box, specialized functionality for systems engineering.
With the Architecture, Integration and Design for Automotive
Project (AIDA), BMW will implement a seamless collaborative process to connect
the various constituents and actors of the E/E process, putting BMW’s
customers’ values at the center of the innovation process. By leveraging
Dassault Systèmes’ V6 to create a single IP reference, BMW will link customer
requirements to implementable functions in the car, while defining the logical
architecture of the systems and releasing the physical expression in form of
hardware and software.
BMW will leverage the V6 solution to manage the future
complexity of embedded systems in the car by providing a master architecture
for all car derivations and enabling a constant modernization of car functions.
The re-use of functions and the separation of hardware and software components
in the development process will help BMW gain significant cost savings in the
The V6 PLM systems design solution will be connected to the
current BMW enterprise environment, demonstrating the openness of the V6
platform. This successful deployment, already in operation today, is the first
step in a 10-year partnership that BMW and Dassault Systèmes have signed to
build the best infrastructure and applications for the E/E domain.
