Siemens today announced that aircraft manufacturer Airbus has decided to implement the Capital electrical and electronic design system from the Xcelerator suite to accelerate the development of passenger aircraft.
Capital platform fully supports the concept of digital twins. It is also completely open. These factors, ensuring integration with all divisions of the enterprise, played a key role in the choice. Siemens support, including training seminars, will help you move quickly to new design processes.
Capital is building a fully featured digital twin of electrical and electronic equipment with configuration management support. For this, the concept of “digital thread” is applied, which combines the stages of development, manufacture and operation of products. In addition, Capital’s open IT architecture and broad integration capabilities make it easy to integrate with Airbus’ Lean PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) environment. The result is a reliable environment for the design and manufacture of electrical systems by geographically dispersed teams.
All specialists will work in a single design environment, which speeds up development, optimizes technological processes for manufacturing electrical systems and improves product quality. In addition, integration with suppliers is provided to optimize system architecture, wiring harness and operational documentation.
“Capital helps customers automate the design of electrical systems, which reduces lead times and delivers significant cost savings,” he said. Martin O’Brien (Martin O’Brien), Senior Vice President, Siemens Integrated Electrical Systems. “This is a very effective solution for an industry facing unprecedented challenges. By leveraging the full benefits of Model-Based Design, Capital’s solution helps the world’s leading companies like Airbus manage complexity, eliminate risk and improve overall productivity. ”
