Indian commercial vehicle manufacturer Volvo Eicher has chosen the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by French Software Company Dassault Systèmes to cost-effectively develop and deliver trucks and buses in the country.
Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicles (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, which 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. Teams can address the complexity of a diverse product portfolio with agile variant and configuration management of global product designs and a bill of materials containing all variants.
VECV can meet evolving customer expectations for performance and quality while optimizing costs and cycle times.
“After an 18-month business consulting engagement, we recognized 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 RS Sachdeva, Chief Operating Officer, Eicher Trucks & 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 localize the development of differentiating technologies is a key concern for many original equipment manufacturers,” said Olivier Sappin, Vice President, Transportation & Mobility Industry, 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 recognizing the value that it can bring to their business.”
