Dassault Systèmes Consolidates Forces with DMS to Elevate Thai Manufacturing Sector Toward the Digital Era with DELMIA Applications Driven by the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform that Helps Accelerate Innovation and Enhance the Value Chain.
Dassault Systèmes joins hands with Digital Manufacturing Solutions Co., Ltd., (DMS). This collaboration aims to drive growth and increase adoption of Dassault Systèmes manufacturing technology solutions in Thailand – an important automotive production center in the region. In addition, the strategic partnership will provide essential technical and application support to regional customers operating in the transportation and logistics industry, and help promote global competitiveness by strengthening the capacity to drive sustainable innovation.
Mr. Samson KHAOU, Executive Vice President, Asia Pacific – Dassault Systèmes said, applying digital technology to transform the automotive industry will increase competitiveness for Thailand’s automotive industry, and develop transportation in a sustainable manner. The innovation in production and design emphasizing the sustainable management of natural resources must be used in order to reduce unnecessary waste, which would lead to environmental pollution from the initial stage of the production process. Virtual Twin technology would help to create a smooth working collaboration in various functions and help develop the future of smart city transportation to become concretely real by improving users’ experiences and sustainability of the products or services that meet the lifecycle of the entire solution system. Modeling a comprehensive production processes through the Virtual Twin will create sustainable operations and help the automotive industry realize a more sustainable future, increase the speed of production and expediting product deliveries to the market, and reduce the cost.
Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform plays a key role in developing the potential of people in the automotive sector. From research and development, to design and engineering, production and after-sales services, Dassault Systèmes’ solutions will help increase new skills and abilities for personnel, such as, project management, the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), System Engineering and Detailed Structural Calculations. Moreover, the immersive technology and simulation of complex systems, multi-physics systems modelling, and various manufacturing production processes will increase efficiency in planning the production lines and assembly and digitalize factories in the Industry 4.0 era.
“Furthermore, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can be used in various manufacturing industries, such as, the electric vehicle (EV) industry where the platform can simulate the processes, from assembling an EV, testing autonomous driving systems in the virtual world, and dealing with cars after the sales to help companies reduce cost and increase the product quality,” added Mr. KHAOU.
Mr. Somsak Limkunatham, DMS Managing Director, offers a wide range of technologies in the manufacturing sector in Thailand. Such services are primarily focused on the automotive suppliers as the main principle that covers the solutions for the entire automative production line from manufacturing operation system, to product life cycle management, and IoT factory monitoring. DMS, in particular, will focus on offering Dassault Systèmes DELMIA applications powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which consists of industry-leading solutions in digital manufacturing. Making use of tools for manufacturing operations management, such as enterprise resource planning, various companies can therefore smoothly integrate their manufacturing operations and resource management, and create a comprehensive ecosystem that increases manufacturing efficiency across the value chain. This is our reason why we have cooperated with Dassault Systèmes.
“Workforce is a vital factor in driving Thailand towards the success in the manufacturing sector and elevate it through digital transformation. It is important that we must have a workforce up to 100,000 people to be made available for supporting the manufacturing sector within the next 2 – 3 years. In this regard, collaboration between the government sector, educational institutes, vocational institutes, industrial leaders and technology partners is necessary for upskilling and reskilling. We definitely believe that Dassault Systèmes’ cutting-edge digital platform and technology can indeed elevate Thailand’s status to become a manufacturing hub,” added Mr. Limkunatham.
