Dassault Systèmes Ushers in a Digital Transformation of Manufacturing in India

Launches the “manufacturing in the age of experience” event in India

Dassault Systèmes commenced its first “Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” event in India.

Held in Pune, this regional adaptation of the company’s global “Age of Experience” event series provides 100 C-level executives and business leaders from manufacturing sectors in Automotive, Transportation, Aerospace, Defense and Industrial Engineering verticals with a detailed perspective on steps that businesses can take to digitally transform their manufacturing operations.

India is on the threshold of major reforms in manufacturing. With a strong impetus on developing industrial corridors, smart cities and manufacturing hubs, there is a significant push to locally manufacture products for consumer and B2B use.

In the aerospace and defense sector, global companies are procuring heavily from local tier one and tier two suppliers, while in the automotive sector, domestic manufacturers are expanding their capacity and footprint to new states, and global players are exploring joint ventures and greenfield projects. India as a hub for quality manufacturing activities in product design, R&D and assembling is evolving and has the potential to reach US$ 1 trillion by 2025.

Inaugurating the event, Samson Khaou, MD, India, Dassault Systèmes, said: “The ‘Make in India’ initiative is now a global agenda and there is an incredible opportunity for Indian enterprises and SMEs across key verticals to take a giant leap. The first step that Indian manufacturing companies need to take to compete with their global counterparts in an experience economy is to disrupt their traditional manufacturing operations with more agile, flexible, scalable manufacturing processes.

"In this context, they need to address four areas of the manufacturing equation: Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management, Supply Chain Planning & Operations and Additive Manufacturing.”

Guillaume Vendroux, CEO, DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes, said: “The world of manufacturing has shifted its focus from mass production to mass customization and quick delivery to an on-demand generation of consumers. Complete synchronization and integration of operations, modularity and predictive analytics have enabled manufacturers to provide consumers with a personalized experience.

"Additive manufacturing is becoming a game changer. ‘Manufacturing in the Age of Experience’ offers a unique opportunity to explore how industries can digitally transform with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.”
