To kick off the year, Siemens announced that Swedish electric airplane manufacturer Heart Aerospace chose Capital software for the design, development, and certification of its zero-emission electric aircraft. The company’s mission is to create an environmentally friendly, affordable, and accessible mode of transportation. Siemens Capital software’s compliance functionality is crucial for Heart Aerospace to streamline the complex Electrical Wiring Interconnect System (EWIS) and ensure faster regulatory compliance.

As senior director of the aerospace and defense business for Siemens Capital, Anthony Nicoli shared how customers’ platforms in this industry have become increasingly high-risk due to competitive margin pressures and complex design requirements that affect the entire supply chain. Customers now demand enhanced platform performance, leading OEMs to incorporate more capabilities through E/E systems. He discusses how platform developers can manage the program risks associated with these changes.

3. AUTOMOTIVE White Paper: Maintaining sustainability in the wiring harness industry

One of the top white paper of 2023 was by senior director of automotive and transportation for Siemens Capital, Doug Burcicki and Lena Stein, market development specialist.
