French multinational software firm Dassault Systèmes revealed at its recently held event “Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” on Thursday (8 June) at its campus in Pune, Maharashtra. The Indian arm of the Vélizy-Villacoublay-based company, which is already catering to Automotive, and Transportation sectors,  is now keen to gain a foothold in emerging sectors Aerospace, Defense and Industrial Engineering, SMEs to name a few.

Samson Khaou, Managing Director, 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. India companies in various sectors need to address four areas of the manufacturing equation i.e. Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management, Supply Chain Planning & Operations and Additive Manufacturing. However, this digital transformation is not meant to remove blue collar workers from the shopfloor but to re-skill them to adapt themselves to global standards.”

The company also depicted the future of smart manufacturing in the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground, a technology showcase featuring interactive stations.

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. ‘Manufacturing in the Age of Experience’ offers a unique opportunity to explore how industries can digitally transform with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.”

Dassault Systèmes is of the firm view that India is on the threshold of major reforms in manufacturing thanks to the signature initiatives like ‘Make-in-India’ by its Prime Minister. With a strong impetus on developing industrial corridors, smart cities and manufacturing hubs, the company is confident of piggybacking on them with its solutions. 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.
