Dassault will team with Jaguar Land Rover
Dassault Systèmes, a French company with a big presence in Massachusetts, said it has entered a strategic relationship with the Jaguar Land Rover that aims to result in extensive collaboration on the auto maker’s automotive design infrastructure.
The two companies said they will work together to jointly develop product creation solutions, and Jaguar Land Rover will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solutions for Product Lifecycle Management.
Dassault’s ENOVIA software, which is developed in Lowell, its 3DVIA software, which is developed in Concord, and its SIMULIA software, which is developed in Rhode Island, are "all part of this implementation that will form the backbone of the global auto maker’s automotive design infrastructure."
Earlier this month, Dassault Systèmes said it has been hired to provide product lifecycle management solutions to BMW, the luxury auto brand.
In September, Dassault Systèmes announced plans to establish a campus in Waltham and consolidate its operations in Lowell and Concord there. At the time of the announcement, the company said it had 800 employees in Massachusetts. Plans call for the Waltham site to be the center of the company's operations in North and South America. At the time, Dassault Systèmes employed 9,000 employees worldwide.
