Daimler selects Siemens CAD software for vehicle design

German automotive company Daimler has selected CAD software from Siemens as the standard for their worldwide vehicle development.

Starting in the summer of 2012, Daimler will integrate work from more than 20 development centres, together with their most important suppliers, on a single product-development platform.

Both companies have agreed not to disclose the contract value.

With the decision for the NX CAD Software of Siemens, Daimler completes their current implementation of Teamcenter, the company’s product data-management backbone.
