Jaguar Land Rover and Dassault Systèmes have entered a partnership that formalizes future cooperation and collaboration. The agreement, signed by Dassault Systèmes President and CEO Bernard Charlès and Jaguar Land Rover CEO Dr. Ralf Speth, will see advanced digital 3-D simulation and development tools transform Jaguar Land Rover’s product development processes. The two companies will work together to jointly develop industry-leading product creation solutions. Jaguar Land Rover will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solutions for Product Lifecycle Management, the process which drives and controls all vehicle creation processes, to increase operational efficiency and reduce complexity through enhanced innovation and accelerated development capabilities. Dassault Systèmes was chosen by Jaguar Land Rover as its preferred partner in the PLM field following an 18-month evaluation period that included a full analysis of the PMTI (Process, Method, Tools, Information) environment at Jaguar Land Rover. Development engineers from both companies will also work together on new processes and solutions that will provide the combination of simplification and specialization required to create new generations of premium vehicles. The focus on commonality, innovation, and integration will have the dual benefit of significantly increasing efficiencies while reducing cost by a similar margin.
