A comprehensive E/E systems development solution
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 and traceability. Many industries suffer from outdated, disconnected, and siloed product development methods. Companies are looking for new product development processes and tools that enable them to blur these boundaries across domains and through the product life cycle. To address these challenges Siemens has developed Capital, a comprehensive E/E systems development solution to efficiently engineer today’s smart products. It covers the design, manufacture, and service of electrical systems as well as encompassing E/E system and software architectures, network communications, and embedded software development.
