Why suppliers should align their digitalisation strategy with Jaguar Land Rover

Vehicle programme delays and warranty issues are costing Jaguar Land Rover billions of pounds per year. To navigate the current economic conditions and build a sustainable business for the future, it’s imperative for JLR to drive speed and quality improvements by building more resilient and efficient partnerships with suppliers.

A few months ago, it would have been hard to foresee positive outcomes from the Covid-19 crisis. In reality, it has accelerated the digitalisation programme that the Jaguar Land Rover Digital Engineering Capability team is delivering with its strategic partner Dassault Systèmes. It has also strengthened their ambition to produce better quality products as they continue on the journey towards Destination Zero. However, to achieve this ambition and secure a more sustainable future for everyone involved, it’s vital for suppliers to align with JLR’s digitalisation strategy.

All major active JLR vehicle programmes have now been migrated to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, with the remaining to be migrated upon programme resumption. Fully aligned with the Body, Electrical and Powertrain or Chassis Center of Competences, and with JLR committed to developing future vehicle programmes on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform too, it’s clear that suppliers who support JLR’s digitalisation strategy will directly contribute to JLR’s goal of improving strategic operating efficiencies while strengthening their position to be appointed on these future programmes.

This simple guide to the different levels of 3DEXPERIENCE platform adoption will help you choose what’s best for you.
