Dassault Systèmes recently launched the 3DEXPERIENCE on Wheels- Connected Factory, which is a tech-nology showcase of a fully functional factory assembly line mounted on a vehicle that showcase transformational experiences for a smart and connected factory of the future, in Pune. The 3DEXPERIENCE On Wheels – Connected Factory campaign will tour at various manufacturing hubs, industrial corridors, start-up incubators, and academic institutes.
Elaborating on the campaign, Kiran Divekar, Director – DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes, explained how people can experience lean management, advanced production & scheduling, manufacturing operations management, manufacturing analytics and 3DEXPERIENCE Twin.
While lean management showcases how digital technologies can empower a strong collaboration between operational teams in the plant, manufacturing operations management, advanced planning & scheduling and analytics demonstrate the benefits that real-time production monitoring with digitally connected equipment and tracking of key performance metrics are bringing to make right decisions for an agile & efficient shop-floor. The 3DEXPERIENCE Twin highlights the value of connecting the virtual world with real-time data to introspect, improve and analyse multiple production options in order to improve productivity.
At the launch, Samson Khaou, MD, India, Dassault Systèmes, cited,” We have the vision & strategy in industry renaissance and with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we are a game-changer, leveraging our capacity to help manufacturers in India to reinvent themselves.” Similarly, sharing his thoughts about the near future, Guillaume Vendroux, CEO – DELMIA, , Dassault Systèmes, quoted, “Those who don’t digitise their industrial operations in the next five years will find themselves in a peculiar situation because they’ll lose out to their competitors in terms of response time.”
Kothapalle Reddy, VP, Business Transformation, Dassault Systèmes, asserted, “Today, manufacturing companies must innovate, manage production capacity and improve quality, digitalise to improve exports and invest in new technologies. We are constantly looking out for new technologies that seamlessly connect into existing systems and enhance collaboration.”
Sharing his perspective, Shree Harsha, Indian Marketing Director, Dassault Systèmes, anticipated, “Manufacturing is changing too fast. The goods, products and services are no longer enough but the experience that the customers connect with the product is what matters.”
