Automotive Wiring Systems Digital Twin

Why Are Automotive Wiring Systems Experts Getting Excited about the Digital Twin?

While the concept of a digital twin has been around since the early 2000s, it’s only thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT) that its time has come. It was recently named one of Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2018. Simply speaking, a digital twin is a virtual model of a process or product, which is paired to the physical world. This approach allows the analysis of data and creates a wide range of new technical and commercial opportunities.

Zuken Helps French Automotive and Special Vehicle Supplier Increase Global Turnover while Maintaining Quality

Several years ago, automotive supplier EFA France realised they were expanding at a rate beyond which their current electrical design setup could manage. With plans to increase their global turnover, while maintaining the high level of quality in their products that had caused their business to prosper in the first place, they needed a new solution.

Vehicle Systems

A System of Systems Design Approach

The traditional PCB-centric design process is being replaced by a system-centric process. The system can be defined as the final product (e.g., camera) or one of the many components that comprise a product (e.g., 1 of 80 electronic control units in a car). Product complexity is driving this profound shift away from a focus on detailed design toward a systems engineering approach.
