Fiat has committed to use Zuken's E³.series electrical system design and integration software solution across the entire Fiat Group Automobile range including the Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati, and Fiat-Professional brands. Zuken says its offerings provide significant efficiency gains by implementing global methodologies and solutions for the complex automobile design environment, for which multiple options and variants are driven by rapid product innovation and marketing demands. Specifically, the full E³.series flow will provide Fiat with significantly enhanced engineering productivity along with cost, reliability, and time-to-market advantages. E³.series Functional Design will speed up the development of electrical systems, supporting fast drafting in the early development cycle that increases the documentation quality and eliminates wiring integration errors. E³.series Wiring Diagram Generator Fiat will automate construction of all wiring interconnects while taking into account the standard format. Fiat is also adopting E³.e-PLM to ease data flow throughout the design process.
