Dassault Systèmes and Hyundai Motor have extended their long established agreement on CATIA systems.
Dassault Systèmes has announced a supply and maintenance agreement with Hyundai Motor for Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA applications. It covers the next five years.
Through this agreement, Hyundai Motor expects to help its diverse partners locally and globally by being able to foster their collaborative technology relationships.
Dassault Systèmes is recognised as a long-standing growth partner of Hyundai Motor. It has contributed to the development of vehicles and related technologies by providing CATIA and technical support to Hyundai Motor for the past 30 years.
CATIA, which is currently used by the technical centre of Hyundai Motor group located in several countries, is a solution used for designing the entire production process in a 3D model, from the initial idea planning stage to design, analysis, and assembly. CATIA has contributed to shortening Hyundai Motor’s product development process and reducing its costs.
“The extension of our agreement with Hyundai Motor takes place at a time when the mobility industry in Korea is accelerating toward the electrification of vehicles. This has significant implications for helping the related industry prepare for new changes in a more stable way,” said Samson Khaou, Executive Vice President, Asia-Pacific, Dassault Systèmes. “Through this partnership, Dassault Systèmes will continue to provide the best support to Hyundai Motor with technology and know-how to help it take a leading position in the global automobile market as well as in new business.”
