Virtual is Vital is the new mantra of Contechs, a UK automotive design and engineering services provider. The company works with some of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world to develop new, innovative products and services to compete in the rapidly changing automotive industry.
One of the main issues for carmakers now is to develop all different kinds of vehicles, such as hybrid, electric and autonomous, in parallel. Contechs believes visualization combined with digital design and data reuse to suit multiple purposes is the key to helping their customers develop the cars of the future and to staying ahead of market trends.
To achieve this, Contechs and its partner OEMs and suppliers must develop new engineering concepts including modularization and the standardization of data. Therefore, they adopted Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE® platform where all data can be managed, accessed and compared – without compromising on data security – to maximize data and design reuse.
Contechs is in the position to bridge the gap between the OEMs and the suppliers, so improving collaboration in one central platform is essential. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables multichannel communication between all disparate company organizations and its internal teams, and provides total visibility of all product development activities.
Contechs mantra came alive when it adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It enabled the company to develop the vehicles of the future by reusing data and design and, therefore, increased productivity. Get detailed insight into this story by reading the case study and watching the video.
