Daimler Truck, Siemens collaborate on digital engineering platform

The platform will enable Daimler Truck to explore the efficient product development and lifecycle management of trucks and buses.

Siemens Digital Industries Software and Daimler Truck AG announced a new collaboration to implement a digital engineering platform built using the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services. The platform will enable Daimler Truck to explore the efficient product development and lifecycle management of trucks and buses, the company says. The platform will be rolled out globally across Daimler Trucks’ engineering hubs, brands and business segments.

The new digital platform, according to the companies, will expand Daimler Truck’s adoption of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio through the implementation of Teamcenter software for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), extended with Bill of Material (BOM) management as its future standard PLM solution.

Daimler Truck says it is taking a global platform approach to development, which means that the guiding principle of developing key components and vehicle platforms once and then scaling them globally across brands and markets is fundamental.
