Challenges for CAx and EDM in an international automotive company

By Holger Burr, Till Deubel, Michael Vielhaber, Siegmar Haasis and Christian Weber


In design and manufacturing of passenger cars, changes in processes and tools pose new challenges for the management of engineering data. In this paper, the status quo, challenges, and developments are elaborated using the example of a globally operating automobile manufacturer. Special attention is given to the complexity and variance of the products, to paradigm shifts in design philosophies, to trends targeting the IT environment, and to user bias. Finally, conclusions are drawn for future CAx and EDM1 concepts and strategies
