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.

Ranchi, Oct 18: Having lost nine successive tosses in Asia, an exasperated South Africa captain Faf du Plessis won't mind sending "someone else" in his place for the toss of the coin in the third and final Test against India, beginning here Saturday.

South Africa have struggled in Indian conditions and not winning the toss in the first two Tests has only made things tougher for them. Opting to bat in Visakhapatnam and Pune, India put up 500-plus totals to virtually bat the visitors out of the game.

"We really want to make sure that we compete with this team in their own conditions. We have done it in stages in the first Test. So, hoping that we can start with the toss tomorrow.

"Probably we will change... send someone else to the toss tomorrow. I can give you that... because my records so far has not been great," said du Plessis, in a lighter vein, on the eve of the game.

Du Plesiss said "anything is possible" if his side get to bat first.

"If you put big runs in the first innings, that's where it need to stop. Then anything from there is possible. Hopefully that will unfold in the next couple of days and hopefully we can put some runs on.

"The pitch looks a little bit drier and crustier so first innings runs will be vital and then anything from there is possible in the second innings," the South African skipper added.
