Siemens Digital Industries Software, a longtime partner of RFK Racing, has joined the RFK TeK Alliance and will continue to assist the team in accelerating its development capabilities with technologies and continue its proven success at and away from the track.
“Siemens is thrilled to be joining the RFK TeK Alliance and expanding our long-standing partnership with Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing. Joining the RFK TeK Alliance adds our technologies and expertise to the group RFK has assembled to help them succeed and help build a more sustainable future for motorsport,” says David Taylor, vice president, industry strategy and marketing at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “It’s another great example of how the motorsport industry, like many others, is adopting Siemens Xcelerator to aid its digital transformation and use digital twin technology to gain competitive advantage on the racetrack.”
RFK uses the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of industry software for product engineering, digital simulation and product lifecycle management (PLM) to help them design, test and manufacture faster. Siemens’ software products are used to create digital twin models of numerous parts and systems on the race cars, and in some scenarios, simulations are run to help optimize geometry (making parts lighter, stronger, etc.).
Siemens’ NX software is used for vehicle design, engineering and virtual simulation capabilities from the Simenter portfolio is to test and optimize vehicles at the accelerated rate that motorsport teams demand. Siemens’ Teamcenter software for product lifecycle management plays a role for RFK Racing in managing the parts it creates. It allows the team to manage its product lifecycle data and processes and acts as the interface between engineering, purchasing, quality control and aids sharing and collaboration of engineering models among team members.
