Bosch Improves Engineering Coordination to Achieve Product Leadership

By Eric

You could say the library is the brain of our development. All the information our developers need for their work is stored centrally, so they know, for instance, whether they can use a component for a new development or when it has been discontinued

explains Lutz Napiwotzky, responsible for Engineering Applications Corporate IT at Bosch.

When the Bosch Group’s Automotive Technology Division, one of the world’s leading suppliers to the automotive industry, analyzed their development processes, they quickly identified areas for improvement, including consistent data management. Each division structured data differently and stored it in different systems. As a result, tasks like tracing component use were inefficient and sometimes impossible. The company really wanted to increase the efficiency of these processes by simplifying and standardizing them. The only solution for Bosch was to install a component supplier management solution.

After implementing Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform Bosch engineers understand exactly which components were installed in which devices, including all configuration and material information. In particular, the component library structuring and versioning capabilities bring significant value to the Stuttgart-based company.
