Process, Resource) model. PPR will enable CMC product development teams,
suppliers and customers to collaborate in a 3D work environment throughout the
development lifecycle of a vehicle. The integration of Dassault Systemes'
solutions is one of the key factors behind CMC's decision to select DELMIA for
its digital factory.

plans to reduce time-to-market by enabling collaboration between design, product
engineering and manufacturing teams," said Bertrand Saint-Martin, vice president
