Volvo Group, which offers trucks, buses, construction equipment, and power solutions for marine and industrial applications, embarked on a strategy to transform its IT architecture by consolidating PLM and CAD platforms to enable better leverage of product data across the value chain.

“Using one PLM and CAD platform will act as a key enabler in our digital engineering transformation,” said Lars Stenqvist, CTO at Volvo Group. “Leveraging this foundation, we see great possibilities in connecting PTC’s IOT and AR solutions into our digital thread strategy.”

In addition to transforming its product innovation process, Volvo Group seeks to shape the transportation industry’s future with technology and systems solutions that are safer, cleaner, and more efficient.

“By aligning with PTC around the CAD platform, we will work together to create a world-class capability that we expect will be a competitive advantage for years to come as we pursue the future landscape of sustainable transport and infrastructure at Volvo,” said Stenqvist.

“By working together on a common vision, we have driven important improvements to the PTC product suite, and important improvements in enabling Volvo Group to bring great products to market,” said Jim Heppelmann, President & CEO, PTC. “We are pleased to be a partner of choice for Volvo Group across its product development teams.
