Aims to help transform electrical/electronic systems development.

Siemens Digital Industries Software announced an expanded Capital electrical/electronic (E/E) systems-development software portfolio. Building upon Capital capabilities for design, manufacture and service of electrical systems, the portfolio is now expanded to encompass E/E system and software architectures, network communications and embedded software development.

As part of Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio of software, services and application-development platforms, Capital is integrated with adjacent Siemens solutions, including the Teamcenter portfolio for product-lifecycle management, NX software for mechanical design, and Mendix low-code development environments

“Siemens continues to be on the forefront of bringing together formerly siloed disciplines required to develop and support today’s smart, connected products,” said Craig A. Brown, executive consultant, CIMdata. “By integrating Capital with these technologies, Siemens is providing companies a system-wide view of their products allowing them to economically achieve the performance and quality their customers require.”

“Over the last two decades the Capital portfolio has been strategically expanded to meet the needs of innovative organizations that are ushering in the future of E/E systems development in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, marine and industrial machinery,” stated Martin O’Brien, senior vice president of Siemens’ Integrated Electrical Systems business. “Companies have realized significant tangible benefits when they deploy Capital for the development of electrical systems, networks and embedded software.”
