Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Digital Factory Division, is a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) and manufacturing operations management (MOM) software, systems and services with over 15 million licensed seats and more than 140,000 customers worldwide. For over a decade, our partnership with Renault Sport Formula One Team encompasses two critical engineering disciplines ; engineering simulation and advanced composite design.
Our engineering simulation tools, led by the STAR-CCM+ product, allow Renault Sport Formula One Team to discover better designs, faster. The software plays a critical role in aerodynamic development, while both STAR-CCM+ and STAR-CD are used extensively in engine design simulation solutions, providing the most reliable flow of information into the team’s design process, which in turn drives innovation and lowers development costs.
Our advanced composite design tools, led by the Fibersim product, allow Renault Sport Formula One Team to design and manufacture parts made of advanced composite materials, including carbon fibre. The software enables the engineers at the Enstone facility to significantly reduce design and production time and improve the accuracy of its composite racing car parts, which make up 85% of the car but only 20% of its weight.
