Jaguar Land Rover and Dassault Systemes agree new strategic partnership
Article Type: News From: Assembly Automation, Volume 31, Issue 3
Jaguar Land Rover and Dassault Systèmes, a leader in 3D and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, have today entered a strategic partnership that formalises future cooperation and collaboration between the two companies.
The agreement, signed by Dassault Systèmes President and CEO Bernard Charlès and Jaguar Land Rover CEO Dr Ralf Speth, will see advanced digital 3D simulation and development tools transform Jaguar Land Rover’s product development processes. The two companies will work together to jointly develop industry-leading product creation solutions.
Jaguar Land Rover will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solutions for PLM – the process which drives and controls all vehicle creation processes – to increase operational efficiency and reduce complexity through enhanced innovation and accelerated development capabilities.
Dassault Systèmes was chosen by Jaguar Land Rover as its preferred partner in the PLM field following an 18-month evaluation period that included a full analysis of the PMTI (process, method, tools, information) environment at Jaguar Land Rover.
In addition to supplying existing system programmes, development engineers from Dassault Systèmes and Jaguar Land Rover will work together on new processes and solutions that will provide the combination of simplification and specialization required to create new generations of premium vehicles. The focus on commonality, innovation and integration will have the dual benefit of significantly increasing efficiencies while reducing cost by a similar margin.
Jaguar Land Rover is leveraging the full range of Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solutions from its industry-leading brands, including ENOVIA, CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA and 3DVIA PLM 2.0.
