Dassault Systemes announces JLR Supplier Offers

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. 

So to enhance innovation and reduce development time, JLR partnered with Dassault Systèmes to deploy solutions in a business transformation program called i-PLM.

The Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Supplier Program i-PLM 2.0, has now commenced following the alignment of Dassault Systèmes and JLR: The Engineering Toolset.

The development and implementation of The Engineering Toolset will support JLR with their growth strategy in coming years for future model development.

The suite consists of Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and JLR accompanying applications to include all CAD and data management requirements. The Engineering Toolset will resolve engineering level issues such as:

  • A simplified data model
  • Close alignment to Dassault Systèmes best practices
  • Simplified and relevant working practices

Only companies identified and confirmed as a supplier by JLR are eligible to obtain parallel use, and the parallel use will expire December 2019.
