Renault, a French multinational automobile manufacturer, has selected the Aras PLM Platform to manage vehicle software configurations that will be distributed over the air.
Renault has been operating on multiple in-house PLM systems that are not capable of supporting their current needs. They require a PLM system that is flexible enough to handle high level configuration management and full lifecycle traceability. Traceability is enabled by proper implementation of a PLM platform, and Aras’ configuration management capabilities establish traceability between all affected elements of a system.
The Aras PLM Platform will allow Renault to create a set of various engineering applications, which require PLM and Configuration Management. Engineers will be able to build consistent software configurations according to the options and variants of each individual car, resulting in the ability to maintain a vehicle’s operation in the field.
Renault selected the Aras PLM Platform for its flexibility, ability to meet specific requirements, and the guarantee against application obsolescence.
“The automotive sector thrives on bringing new models—and new vehicle technologies—to market as quickly as possible,” Stephane Guignard, vice president South EMEA, Aras, said. “With a flexible platform for managing the product lifecycle, manufacturers can gain a clear advantage over the competition. We’re delighted that, after Nissan, Renault has chosen Aras.”
