FISITA Special Report: The role of Model-Based Development (MBD) in the decarbonisation of mobility.


Rapid developments in technology and fast evolving customer expectations are shaping and reshaping all industries, including the global automotive industry. As new mobility services are established, there is a growing need for active involvement in global environmental sustainability. 


Model-Based Development (MBD) is a method to improve development efficiency and communication between original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers and the wide range of associated industries. MBD is indispensable in automotive development. MBD uses computer-based models to design, analyse, and verify complex systems, enabling early validation, improved efficiency, and streamlined communication throughout the development process. 


The report authors examine challenges for the co-existence and further development of the automotive industry and associated industries within a future decarbonised society based on characteristics of MBD technology.
