India is on the threshold of major reforms in manufacturing. With a strong impetus on developing industrial corridors, smart cities and manufacturing hubs, there is a significant push to locally manufacture products for consumer and B2B use. The ‘Make in India’ initiative is now a global agenda and there is an incredible opportunity for Indian enterprises and SMEs across key verticals to take a giant leap. According to reports, India as a hub for quality manufacturing activities in product design, R&D and assembling is evolving and has the potential to reach $ 1 trillion by 2025.
“The first step that Indian manufacturing companies need to take to compete with their global counterparts in an experience economy is to disrupt their traditional manufacturing operations with more agile, flexible, scalable manufacturing processes. In this context, they need to address four areas of the manufacturing equation: Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management, Supply Chain Planning & Operations and Additive Manufacturing,” Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systemes said while inaugurating the company’s first “Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” event in India.
Held in Pune, this regional adaptation of Dassault Systemes’s global “Age of Experience” event series provides 100 C-level executives and business leaders from manufacturing sectors in automotive, transportation, aerospace, defence and industrial engineering verticals with a detailed perspective on steps that businesses can take to digitally transform their manufacturing operations.
“Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” will also provide a preview of the future of smart manufacturing in the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground, a technology showcase featuring interactive stations. The Future Manufacturing Cockpit provides a perspective on tomorrow’s global enterprises where production complexity is handled with ease by anew holographic 3D view of all levels of the value creation process. The 3DEXPERIENCE Factory is a smart factory solution to design and simulate the behaviour of the full production line combining the HTC Vive virtual reality system and Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The 3D Lean Experience provides a real shop floor experience developed for operators, team leaders and supervisors. Four Digital Continuity scenarios spanning product engineering to manufacturing and back to product engineering are also showcased.
