Indian auto maker VE Commercial Vehicles (VECV), a joint venture between the Volvo Group and Eicher Motors, has chosen the 3DEXPERIENCE platform of Dassault Systemes to cost-effectively develop and deliver innovative, high-quality trucks and buses.
Dassault systems made this announcement at its 3DEXPERIENCE Forum India 2017 held in Mumbai yesterday.
VECV is deploying “Modular, Glocal and Secure” industry solution experience for an integrated approach to product development that accommodates regional requirements.
The deployment is part of the company’s “Integrated Data Management” initiative that aims to improve quality, streamline the product development process, and deliver business value across the organization by integrating the processes, data and systems of its engineering and manufacturing value chain.
Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, “Modular, Glocal and Secure” industry solution experience unifies digital information in a single collaborative environment that is accessible to VECV’s product planning and portfolio management, product development, vehicle integration, and manufacturing planning departments, as well as to its partners.
