Siemens Xcelerator’s Capital software enables Aribus to develop next-generation electrical and electronic systems

Siemens today announced that Airbus, the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer, has adopted Capital® electrical and Electronic (E/E) system development software from Siemens’ Xcelerator solutions portfolio to accelerate its commercial aircraft development process.

The Capital platform’s ability to create a complete digital thread and openness to facilitate integration within the wider engineering enterprise is why Airbus chose to partner with Siemens. In addition, Siemens provides Airbus with guaranteed technical consulting and support services to help it further accelerate the design and implementation of new processes.

The digital thread provided by Capital runs through the entire electrical and electronic system development, manufacturing and operation life cycle, which can realize a true digital twin of electrical and electronic system under configuration control. Capital’s open IT architecture and multi-domain integration enable simple and straightforward deployment in Airbus’ Lean PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) environment, providing the core foundation for Airbus’ multinational development team’s electrical and electronic system design and electrical wiring harness manufacturing engineering.
