3DEXPERIENCE has been chosen to cost-effectively develop innovative vehicles in India
VE Commercial Vehicles (VECV), a joint venture between the Volvo Group and Eicher Motors Limited, has chosen Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to cost-effectively develop innovative trucks and buses for the commercial vehicle market in India.
The deployment is part of VECV’s ‘Integrated Data Management’ initiative, which aims to improve quality, streamline the product development process and deliver business value across the organisation by integrating the processes, data and systems of its engineering and manufacturing value chain.
VECV is deploying Modular Glocal & Secure 3DEXPERIENCE solutions from Dassault Systèmes which unify digital information in a single collaborative environment that is accessible to VECV’s product planning and portfolio management, product development and manufacturing planning departments, as well as to its partners. As a result, VECV can meet evolving customer expectations for performance and quality while optimising costs and cycle times.
“After an 18-month business consulting engagement, we recognised the need for business process efficiencies to easily test new ideas, accelerate product verification and validation, and deliver innovative products to market faster at less cost,” said R S Sachdeva, chief operating officer, Eicher Trucks and Buses. “With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we can digitally ensure that our customers’ interests are represented at every phase of product development, from product strategy to shop floor.”
“Adopting a product strategy to meet diverse regional demands and to localise the development of differentiating technologies is a key concern for many original equipment manufacturers,” said Olivier Sappin, vice president of Transportation and Mobility at Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides digital continuity to accelerate innovation, improve product quality and performance, and reduce engineering lead time and costs. More and more commercial vehicle manufacturers are recognising the value that it can bring to their business.”
