Renault Group and Dassault Systèmes Strengthen Partnership

Renault Group has selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud for the development of products and mobility services.

More than 20,000 Renault Group employees from various functions worldwide are said to benefit from virtual twin experiences to improve data sharing and collaboration across the company, the companies report.

Dassault Systèmes and Renault Group report they are reinforcing their 20-year collaboration with a new partnership contributing to Renault Group’s strategic plan “Renaulution” focused on value creation.

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.

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, the company says.

“Our decision to adopt the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud demonstrates our belief in the leadership role of engineering and digital in our ‘Renaulution.’ Our shift toward becoming a technology, services, and energy company must be collaborative,” says Luca de Meo, CEO, Renault Group. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform connects engineering to all disciplines in one digital company. We will gain agility, speed, and effectiveness to develop new mobility faster than ever.”

“Sustainable innovation is in the DNA of both companies. Renault Group’s transformation will radically change the mobility industry going forward, much like the first virtual development of a commercial passenger airplane did for all industries in 1989. We are fully engaged in this partnership and in supporting Renault Group’s success,” says Bernard Charlès, vice chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “Today’s industrial ecosystems are no longer linear, but circular.

“Innovating requires new collaborative approaches with virtual twin experiences that address and include the entire evolving value chain,” Charlès adds. “As Renault Group moves to an enterprise platform, our partnership confirms that the 3DEXPERIENCE platform goes beyond vehicle creation and production. It is a lever to drive the industry toward the delivery of new, sustainable mobility experiences.”

Renault Group is relying on four Dassault Systèmes 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.”
