Bentley is betting big on the Indian market, with its executives recently meeting executives of auto and auto component companies in Pune

When Volkswagen (VW) starts production at Pune next year, it will be one of its fastest built factory. The German car maker built its facility using virtual 3D tools developed by Bentley Systems, the US-based infrastructure software solutions company.

Bentley Systems, Solutions Executive Factories, Torsten Rohrlack, said, “3D intelligent modeling for factories has solved many problems for auto manufacturers as they need an extremely short time-to-market and their models change very fast.

Companies wasted a lot of time and money in modifying factories to suit the manufacturing of newer models, while the time-to-market also increased significantly. Many have therefore shifted to the use of simulation and visualization tools.” He added, “Our software products allow companies to design and develop fully-working model of their facilities virtually before even a single hole is dug into the ground.”

Our software integrates with product designing software like Catia and Delmia (from Dassault Systems), which allows companies to see their products being manufactured virtually,” General Motors built its plants 25% faster and 10-15% cheaper using Bentley’s software, Mr Rohrlack said.
