Dassault Systemes accelerates digitisation of Indian manufacturing
Dassault Systemes, a 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock-Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions provider, plans to tap the new opportunities in the digitisation process of the Indian industry with its new 3D Experience platform. It enables its users to create innovative products in a connected and collaborative environment.
The company recently organised its first “Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” event in India, in Pune. The event was the regional adaptation of the company’s global `Age of Experience’ event series that provides 100 C-level executives and business leaders from manufacturing sectors in the automotive, transportation, aerospace, defence and industrial engineering verticals a detailed perspective on steps that businesses can take to digitally transform their manufacturing operations.
Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systemes said, “The ‘Make in India’ initiative is now a global agenda and there is an incredible opportunity for Indian enterprises and SMEs across key verticals to take a giant leap. The first step the Indian manufacturing companies need to take to compete with their global counterparts in an experience economy is to disrupt their traditional manufacturing operations with more agile, flexible, and scalable manufacturing processes. In this context, they need to address four areas of the manufacturing equation: Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management, Supply Chain Planning, and Operations and Additive Manufacturing.”
India is on the threshold of major reforms in manufacturing. With a strong impetus on developing industrial corridors, smart cities and manufacturing hubs, there is a significant push to locally manufacture products for consumer and B2B use. In the aerospace and defence sectors, global companies are procuring heavily from local tier-1 and tier-2 suppliers, while in the automotive sector, domestic manufacturers are expanding their capacity and footprint to new States. The global players are exploring joint ventures and green field projects. India is evolving as a hub for quality manufacturing, product design, R&D and assembling. These activities have the potential to reach US$ 1 trillion by 2025.
