Dassault Systèmes has announced that GLM Co Ltd, an emerging Japanese developer of environmentally friendly automobiles and related services, has deployed the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to expand its electric vehicle development business.
As the first company in Japan to mass-produce an electric sports car, GLM believes the company will be able to meet the high demand for its expertise and its own technical platform of electric vehicle development solutions including chassis, power systems, and vehicle control units, which automotive manufacturers and new entrants from other industries are using to deliver market innovations.
GLM will rely on the Electro Mobility Accelerator industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. GLM can integrate design and development processes, improve efficiency, leverage its knowledge and know-how to expand its range of products and services, and accelerate their delivery to OEMs, suppliers, and other companies involved in electric vehicle development. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s cloud-based digital environment enables collaboration on multiple projects with its partners in Japan. It will also facilitate collaboration with future partners when GLM expands to new markets.
“Electric, self-driving, connected vehicles, the sharing economy, the transportation and mobility business environment are undergoing changes that occur once in a century,” said Olivier Sappin, Vice President, Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “Electric vehicle innovators need to make a strategic move toward sustainable growth. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the capabilities delivered by its cloud-based applications can pave the way for GLM to quickly innovate, expand its business, and create value. After all, Japan has a tremendous legacy in efficient approaches to automotive development. GLM can become part of this legacy.”
