Greaves Electric Mobility (GEM), the e-mobility business of Greaves Cotton, has adopted the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to design and develop its electric two & three-wheeler vehicles for the Indian market.
Siemens NX software for product design and engineering and Teamcenter software for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio will help GEM to develop products faster by streamlining and accelerating the product development process through an integrated set of digital product engineering and collaboration capabilities.
These solutions will enable the vehicle maker to shorten development time by efficiently utilising digital twins and connecting people and processes across functions. Specifically, digital capabilities will be enabled in requirements engineering, programme planning, mechanical, electrical, and software design management, bill of material management, process, and change management.
Sanjay Behl, CEO & Executive Director, GEM, said, “India’s EV ecosystem is on the cusp of tremendous growth, with increasing demand from consumers for sustainable and affordable personal mobility. Siemens’ toolset will enable us to reduce the time-to-market introduction of electric two-wheelers under Ampere, as well as help to contribute to the country's goal of achieving 80% EVs in two and three-wheelers by 2030 and net zero carbon emissions by 2070”.
Mathew Thomas, Vice President & Managing Director – India, Siemens Digital Industries Software, said the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio will enable GEM to achieve a faster time-to-market for their electric two/three wheelers by supporting an agile product development process.
