PSA has named Dassault Systèmes as its preferred digital partner deploying the 3Dexperience platform.

"Our suppliers play an important role in our plans to prepare for upcoming stringent carbon emissions regulations, the move from internal combustion engines to electric and from driven to driverless cars," said PSA chief information officer, Jean-Luc Perrard. 

"Dassault Systèmes shares our vision for efficiency and innovation.  By making them our preferred digital partner, we can prepare with a transformative shift at every level of vehicle development."

Since starting its digital transformation programme, PSA has already used the 3Dexperience platform to improve efficiency and collaboration across its research and development, technical and testing facilities worldwide.

Some 2,000 employees at OPEL started using it within one year of deployment. 

PSA and Dassault Systèmes will now collaborate on further deployments enlarging the scope of the transformation including a project to improve manufacturing agility and flexibility. 

"Groupe PSA has been a Dassault Systèmes customer for decades and we have become partners to completely transform the group into an even stronger, more innovative mobility leader," said Dassault Systèmes Transportation & Mobility Industry VP, Olivier Sappin.

"As PSA's preferred digital partner, we can reinforce our relationship in the coming years to help it achieve ambitious goals such as electrifying all its vehicles by 2025.  Today's era of mobility requires a revolution in thinking."
