Dassault Systèmes and the Renault Group have announced an extension to their longstanding collaboration through a new partnership focused around Dassault.

As part of the extension, Renault Group is adopting Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The cloud platform will help the automaker develop programs for new vehicles and mobility services. It will, for example, enhance the data sharing process across the product life cycle and help Renault manage the virtual twins of its diverse product configurations.

Renault Group will deploy 3DEXPERIENCE via the cloud to its employees in its Design, Product Engineering, Industrial Process Engineering, Parts, and Materials Purchasing, Costing, and Quality departments. Connected to the cloud, the platform will provide access to the same systems and software, 3D modeling, and simulations and will be updated in real-time. Based on virtual twins, the large-scale collaboration will also work to improve data sharing between the different functions and agility within the company while reducing costs and vehicle development time by one year.

Renault Group is relying on four Dassault Systemes industry solution experiences based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud: On-Target Vehicle Launch, Smart, Safe & Connected, Global Modular Architecture and Efficient Multi-Energy Platform.
