3DPLM Opens Product Innovation Lab at PCCOE and PVGCOE Pune
As part of the Academia collaboration program, 3DPLM is setting up Product Innovation Labs at select few colleges in India. We are pleased to inform that the Product Innovation Lab is now ready for operations at two colleges in Pune – (1) Pimpri-Chinchwad College of Engineering – Pune (PCCOE) and (2) Pune Vidyarthi Gruha’s College of Engineering and Technology – Pune (PVGCOE).
These lab are equipped with the state of art equipment (including 3D Printer, Robots and new technology equipment) and DASSAULT Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. During their inaugural address, Sudarshan Mogasale, CEO of 3DPLM Software Solutions and Hemant Gadgil, Director Learning Solutions Group and Academia Programs – 3DPLM Software Solutions, shared their views about how education plays an important role in realisation of transformation to be achieved in India. They also explained how 3DEXPERIENCE platform is enabling innovators around the globe to visualize, collaborate and build the future products in real time. They stressed upon the use of Product Innovation Labs by students and professors to get familiar with the upcoming technologies, its utilization for innovation and new product development and to gain hands-on experience on domains on which Indian Industries are expected to work upon.
The key idea behind these labs is to promote “Learn by Doing” , inculcate problem solving skills specially for multi-disciplinary problems and motivate students / professors to experiment, simulate – evaluate different solutions / approaches to address specific problems and bring innovative solutions, thereby learn through practical approach. Through these labs 3DPLM wishes to build Product Innovation Culture among students and faculty community & encourage ‘R&D – Academia – Industry’ collaboration. Technical experts from 3DPLM and Dassault Systemes are supporting this lab.
As part of the arrangement, PCCOE, PVGCOE and 3DPLM would like to invite industries in the region to connect with these labs to share their problems and collaborate with professors and researchers to find innovative solutions using the infrastructure and expertise available at this lab.
