Boeing extends use of Siemens’ Mentor Graphics technology for electrical systems and electronics design, mechanical analysis

Boeing officials are expanding the company’s use of Siemens’ Mentor Graphics software as part of its Second Century Enterprise Systems (2CES) initiative, an effort to transform the company and aerospace industry to meet future challenges and achieve maximum value from end-to-end integration of supply chain, manufacturing, engineering, product support, and more. Boeing is harnessing a set of Siemens technologies to enable the next generation of design and manufacturing through increased automation and digitalization.
 
The long-term agreement provides Siemens technology in the areas of electrical systems design, electronic products design, and mechanical analysis as a foundation for Boeing to consistently deliver comprehensive and innovative solutions to its customers. Focusing on technologies from Siemens' Mentor Graphics acquisition, Boeing will standardize on a common, company-wide platform for semiconductor design and verification, printed wire board design and manufacture, electrical system design and manufacture (including wire harness), and thermal and fluid analysis of mechanical designs.
