Ashok Leyland expands use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, on Tuesday announced that Ashok Leyland has expanded its use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by adopting the 'Global Validation, Proven Performance' industry solution experience.

The company conducted the 3DEXPERIENCE Forum 2018 here on Tuesday. 'Global Validation, Proven Performance' enables businesses to meet global challenges by unifying virtual and physical testing to optimise vehicle quality and experience. It provides industry proven capabilities to accurately define vehicle, system, and subsystem performance targets with analytics and reliable traceability.

N Saravanan, Senior Vice President, Product Development, Ashok Leyland said, “As part of our strategy to reduce the overall time to market with zero defects, we have implemented ‘Global Validation, Proven Performance’ based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This not only enables us to manage the complexity involved in the definition and execution of the validation protocols but also helps in the optimisation of the validation protocols and time.”

Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes said, “Leading global OEMs have deployed ‘Global Validation, Proven Performance’ in product R&D to help them enhance their vehicle quality, save cycle time and reduce development costs by improving both physical and virtual testing and validation."

By extending its use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Ashok Leyland is one of the few players in the automotive industry, and the first in India, to integrate virtual and physical prototyping at an R&D level and develop next generation trucks and buses for a global customer base, he added.
