Inaugural event of the Dassault 3DEXPERIENCE event in Bangalore
Ashok Leyland expands use of Dassault 3DExperience platform

Bangalore , September 9, 2018:At its annual 3DEXPERIENCE Forum, here last week, Dassault Systèmes   announced a significant  expansion of its platform   at  India’s second largest commercial vehicle manufacturer, Ashok Leyland.  
The Indian automotive industry leader has adopted  the   “Global Validation, Proven Performance”  platform to  unify virtual and physical testing to optimize vehicle quality and experience.
Evolving market and industry demands, such as safety and emission concerns, have pushed vehicle performance and quality expectations ever higher. With such requirements comes the necessity to effectively manage the vast array of tests and simulations, while at the same time, consider the need for optimization of costs, reduction of cycle time, and successful management of product quality, warranty claims and recall risks.  This is where the Dassault  solution will help.

Said Dr. N Saravanan, Senior Vice President, Product Development, Ashok Leyland : “We have a long-standing relationship with Dassault Systèmes and have been working closely to implement the 3DEXPERIENCE platform across the entire product development process.  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 optimization of the validation protocols and time.”
Added Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes: “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. Ashok Leyland has always been at the forefront of technology adoption for product development. By extending its use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Ashok Leyland is one of the few players in the automotive industry, and now 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.”
Speaking to IndiaTechOnline, on the sidelines of the Bangalore Forum, Samson Khaou  said the 3DExperience platform allowed engineering, aerospace companies   and development agencies  to smoothly translate 3D designs into 3D printing and manufacturing solutions.He said the platform  was being increasingly deployed in urban  and Smart City planning in India.
