Bangalore: Intel Technology India Pvt. Ltd. today announced Tata Motors is deploying Intel Itanium2-based SGI servers to enable enhanced product lifecycle management (PLM) capabilities and bring the power of networked visualisation to user workstations. This will allow the company to unify the product lifecycle and break down the geographical and technical barriers, which might limit its design efficiency.
''This deployment will add a critical dimension to our IT infrastructure, enabling Tata Motors to design and manufacture automobiles that best suit our markets, in the most cost-effective manner and in the shortest possible time,'' said Dr. Uma Maheshwaran, Chief Technology Officer, Tata Motors Limited.
The solution utilizes visual area networking (VAN) technology from Intel-based SGI platforms.
The key business benefits of this solution to Tata Motors include:
- Reduced product development costs by utilising the collaborative capabilities of the application and the versatility of visual area networking technology
- Higher innovation by allowing free flow of information between design team members
- Reduced time-to-market for a new product by fully leveraging the extended supply chain
- Improved product quality by making it easier to spot design flaws while working in a collaborative environment
