Driving the technology @ 128km/h

January 11, 2010 Leave a comment

On a Monday afternoon at work I received a well informative forward from one of my friend about the auto expo 2010 which has made huge news in India so far. Having no automobile aesthetics I kept wondering on a small excerpt in the mail. It read as follows:

The 100 percent battery powered vehicle is powered by a 55Kw motor that produces 140Nm of torque and is capable of propelling the car to a top speed of 128km/h.

This news about the the new Tata Indica Electrical Vehicle sounds fantastic but a typical consumer with a little questioning attitude would ask what does it really mean ! !? The consumer accepts the new model based on an interpretation that the car is an electric vehicle hence can avoid the gas station and secondly he can travel at 128km/h and thirdly the economics.

But what really had gone into developing a car of this acceptable standard?

Answer: To my opinion its the Consumer himself  and few key technology drivers!

To bestow the car to such an acceptable standard, the primary key technology drivers would be a good requirements capturing system blended with a creative car configurator available 24/7 over an online system for the consumer as well as the sales representative.

Dassault Systemes, a world PLM leader and a Software Innovator has some offerings in this arena. Discover the detailed V6 Portfolio – Governance section for more details.

Do post your comments if you have used any of the Dassault Systemes products for requirements capturing or configuring the product across any industry verticals.
