Jaguar Land Rover i-PLM 2.0 - The Engineering Toolset

Jaguar Land Rover’s heritage comprises some of the world’s most iconic vehicles, including Jaguar Mark II, E-Type, and the Land Rover Defender.  

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) emerged within Tata Motors as an exciting, dynamic global enterprise after having passed through the corporate hands of Ford Motors.  Due to JLR's varied ownership history, a complex mixture of automotive industry software was inherited from its previous owners, and this was not scaled or supportive of JLR’s aggressive business plan.

ICYMI (In Case You Missed It)

    • Adaptive Building Design
      In recent years many papers, both government whitepapers, research document and industry guru’s have voiced concern on the poor productivity within the construction industry.

    • Dropbox and BIM
      Dropbox is used very frequently amongst companies within the construction industry as a mechanism to share information. Its cheap, easy to use and available to synchronise files across many hardware platforms. It is easy to see why it has been taken up by many small, medium and even large organisations to help them manage BIM information on building projects.

    • 3DEXPERIENCE Design Share Collaboration Tool
      In this short video you will see some of the powerful live collaboration tools of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform in a scenario where two designers are working on different parts within the same product.

Scripting with MSC Apex

Posted by Andy Woodward on 12-Apr-2018 12:01:00

In an ideal world every piece of software has a button that does exactly what you want, but in the real world you will find yourself completing repetitive tasks either within a single model or each time to create a model.

Repetitive tasks waste the time of engineers and can lead to errors through lack of attention.  MSC Apex has adopted the Python scripting language with its own extensions in order to make automation of tasks a fairly straightforward thing.
