Dassault Systemes has 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 Systemes’ V6 solution for thousands of engineers because of its flexible PLM backbone and the large degree of out-of-the-box, specialised 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 Systemes’ 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 modernisation of car functions.

The reuse of functions and the separation of hardware and software components in the development process will help BMW gain significant cost savings in the E/E domain.

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 Systemes have signed to build the best infrastructure and applications for the E/E domain.
