Chevron, manufacturer and supplier of premium base oil and finished lubricants finds in 3DEXPERIENCE platform the ideal solution to develop its lubricant products.

The company is not the first to experience DS’ platform. Boeing and Airbus preceded it for a large-scale production of their products.

As for Chevron’s products, they are known under the Chevron, Texaco and Caltex names on the global market.

 

“Perfect Product” industry solution

First of all, notice is to be made that Chevron calls for dozens of participants across a wide range of disciplines to create new products or modify existing ones.

With “Perfect Product, DS enables its client to work in a digital collaborative environment. Users  could work on global operations, which allow the company to reduce time, resources and costs associated with new product development.

With regards to Chevron’s activity, DS gives access to a single source of searchable and reusable product data. While contributing to the supply chain activities, Chevron could have access to relevant information at any time as well as the previewed date.

“We turned to Dassault Systèmes to support our efforts to build on more than a century of scientific lubricants research and innovation,” said Brian Stripling, General Manager, Brand, Technology and OEM, Chevron Lubricants. “We aligned our processes and work based on best business practices and functionality thanks to the services of Tech Mahindra, Dassault Systèmes’ systems integration partner. As we continue this journey to reduce complexity, we have embarked on integrating additional processes into our Dassault Systèmes platform.”

Oil and gas – like most of the energy, process and utilities sector – has complex processes which can cause issues that are discovered too late in the product development process and delay the delivery of solutions to market,” said Thomas Grand, Vice President, Energy, Process and Utilities Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps accelerate new product introduction by offering stakeholders across the value chain easy and real-time access to relevant information about the products they are working on. This opens opportunities for companies like Chevron to benefit from an enterprise-wide approach to innovation that the 3DEXPERIENCE platform makes possible.”
