Dassault Système, a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions has entered into a strategic partnership with British SUV major Jaguar and Land Rover, and the two will work together to jointly develop industry-leading product creation solutions.
The agreement was signed by Dassault Systèmes President and CEO Bernard Charlès and Jaguar Land Rover CEO Dr. Ralf Speth, who commented, “"We look to this association to bring significant technical and commercial benefits to Jaguar Land Rover. Dassault Systèmes will provide the processes and tools we need to more efficiently develop and create vehicles that exceed our customers' expectations in every respect and deliver the highest standards of quality."
For starters Jaguar Land Rover will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solutions for Product Lifecycle Management, a process which drives and controls all vehicle creation processes in order to increase operational efficiency and reduce complexity through enhanced innovation and accelerated development capabilities.
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.
A pioneer in the 3D software market since 1981, Dassault Systèmes was chosen by Jaguar Land Rover as its preferred partner following an 18 month evaluation period that included a full analysis of the PMTI (Process, Method, Tools, Information) environment at Jaguar Land Rover. This partnership will see advanced digital 3D simulation and development tools transform Jaguar Land Rover’s future Product Development processes.
