Paris, December 21, 2021 — Dassault Systèmes and Renault Group today announce they are reinforcing their 20-year collaboration with a new partnership contributing to Renault Group’s strategic plan “Renaulution” focused on value creation.
In a first-of-a-kind deployment for an industrial company of this scale, Renault Group is adopting Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud globally, to develop programs for new vehicles and mobility services. This enterprise platform will provide Renault with a new backbone for sharing, in real-time, all product-related data throughout the product life cycle, and for managing the virtual twins of its diverse product configurations.
Major trends in the transportation and mobility industry – increasing regulatory constraints, product complexity, electrification, connectivity, sustainability, and new mobility services – require accelerating the interconnection of different functions and expertise within an agile and collaborative ecosystem.
Renault Group will deploy its use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud to more than 20,000 employees in vehicle development functions such as Design, Product Engineering, Industrial Process Engineering, Parts, and Materials Purchasing, Costing, and Quality. Connected to the cloud, the platform will provide access to the same systems and software, 3D modeling, and simulations, updated in real-time across the world. The large-scale collaboration based on virtual twins will improve data sharing between the different functions and agility within the company while reducing costs and vehicle development time by around one year. Renault Group will benefit from continuous technological evolutions and functional enrichment of the collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud.
