Bengaluru, Sep 4 : Global 3D experience major Dassault Systemes on Tuesday announced that commercial vehicle manufacturer Ashok Leyland has expanded the use of its "3DEXPERIENCE" platform by adopting the "Global Validation, Proven Performance" (GVPP) industry solution experience.

GVPP enables businesses to meet the global challenges by unifying virtual and physical testing to optimise vehicle quality and experience.

With this deployment, Ashok Leyland has become the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in India to adopt GVPP industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by Dassault Systemes, the comapny said during the "3DEXPERIENCE Forum 2018" here.

"As part of our strategy to reduce the overall time to market with zero defects, we have implemented 'Global Validation, Proven Performance' based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform," said Dr N Saravanan, Senior Vice President, Product Development, Ashok Leyland.

"This not only enables us to manage the complexity involved in the definition and execution of the validation protocols but also helps in the optimisation of the validation protocols and time," he added.

GVPP based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform solutions provide industry-proven capabilities to accurately define vehicle, system and subsystem performance targets with analytics and reliable traceability.

According to Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes, leading global OEMs have deployed 'Global Validation, Proven Performance' in product R&D to help them enhance their vehicle quality, save cycle time and reduce development costs.

"By extending its use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Ashok Leyland is one of the few players in the automotive industry, and now the first in India, to integrate virtual and physical prototyping at an R&D level and develop next generation trucks and buses for a global customer base," Khaou said.

New Delhi, Dec 11: The Supreme Court said on Tuesday that if there is a "common thread" among the murders of social activists Narendra Dabholkar, Govind Pansare, journalist Gauri Lankesh and rationalist M M Kalburgi, then one agency can investigate all the four cases.

A bench of Justices U U Lalit and Navin Sinha asked the CBI to inform it by January first week as to why it should not investigate all the four cases if there appears a link among all the murders.

The counsel for the Maharashtra government informed the court that the CBI is investigating the murder cases of social activist and professor Narendra Dabholkar after the Bombay High Court transferred the probes to the agency.

The court, after perusing the status report of the Karnataka Police, said there appears to be a link between the murders of journalist Gauri Lankesh and rationalist M.M Kalburgi.

It asked the Maharashtra government's counsel about the status of the investigation into the Pansare murder case, to which the counsel said the case was pending before the Kolhapur trial court.

Earlier in the day, the Karnataka Police had informed the apex court that there appears to be a connection between Lankesh and Kalburgi murder cases.

The state police also told the apex court that it will file a chargesheet in the Kalburgi murder case in three months.

Noted scholar Kalburgi was killed at Dharwad in 2015. Pansare was also killed the same year. Lankesh was shot dead on September 5, 2017 in Bengaluru, whereas rationalist Dabholkar was assassinated on August 20, 2013.

The top court on November 26 had pulled up the Karnataka government for "doing nothing and just fooling around" in the investigation and had indicated that it may transfer the case to the Bombay High Court.

The top court had on January 10 sought the response of probe agencies NIA and CBI and the two state governments on the allegation of Uma Devi that no substantial investigation has been carried out so far in the murder case.

Kalburgi's wife, in her petition, had alleged that there was common link between the murder of her husband and that of activists Narendra Achyut Dabholkar and Govindrao Pansare, who too were assassinated in August 2013 and February 2015 respectively.

The 77-year old Kalburgi, the former vice chancellor of Hampi University and a well-known epigraphist, was shot dead in broad daylight at his residence in Kalyan Nagar in Dharwad, Karnataka, on August 30, 2015. Born in 1938, he was a Sahitya Akademi award-winning writer of old Kannada literature.
