Swedish auto giant Scania has signed an agreement with French Product Lifecycle Management solution provider Dassault Systemes to use later’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform and other solutions to fine tune its manufacturing to sales programmes.
The agreement aims to enable cost-efficient design, testing and validation of the complete range of Scania’s modular products. It will improve realistic simulations of functional properties and processes, such as engineering, manufacturing, service and sales.
Michael Thel, Engineering Director, Scania, said, “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will help improve simulation for faster validation of our vehicles. It will also enable full traceability and digital continuity from design to manufacturing throughout our unique virtual product development processes.”
This will further support Scania in providing the right products at high quality to customers, as well as a more cost- and resource-efficient product development process.
Olivier Sappin, Vice President, Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes, said, “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its ‘Modular Glocal & Secure’ industry solution experience provide digital continuity to accelerate innovation, improve product quality and performance, and reduce costs in the context of mass customization and complexity. Scania will experience these benefits across its entire value stream.”
