Jaguar Land Rover i-PLM

JLR Supplier Program: The Engineering Toolset

Engineering Toolset

To enhance innovation and reduce development time, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has partnered with Dassault Systèmes to deploy solutions in a business transformation program called i-PLM 2.0.


The JLR Engineering Toolset – includes CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA, and 3DVisualisation applications including all JLR CAD and data management requirements. The development and implementation goals will support JLR with their growth strategy in the coming years for future model development, as well as deliver predictable conditions to enable scalable business growth both for JLR and its suppliers.  It will resolve engineering level issues such as:

  • A simplified data model
  • Close alignment to Dassault Systèmes best practices
  • Simplified and relevant working practices

How it works

Full deployment of the Engineering Toolset across all car programmes has now commenced, and communication to suppliers will be distributed for each programme and associated PLM Statements of Work (*PLMSoW).

Based on Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the Engineering toolset creates a collaborative environment for Jaguar Land Rover employees and suppliers (also using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform).

Specific 3DEXPERIENCE platform supplier packages are available, and each can be customized for working with specific Jaguar Land Rover Centre of Competencies (CAD, Manufacturing. Visualisation etc).

(*PLMSoW is a JLR Attachment to the Engineering Statement of Work to define activities and responsibilities required for Suppliers to support the PLM and JLR-PCDS initiatives.)

Options for investment

Current CATIA V5 User

If you currently pay an Annual Licence Charge (ALC) there are various Migration Paths available. Get in touch to find out more.


An investment in The Engineering Toolset can be made with PLC (Primary Software Charge per licence) + ALC (Annual Licence Charge – Mandatory).


Investment Options for 3 months (or multiples of) or 12 months rentals via a QLC (Quarterly Licence Charge) or YLC (Yearly Licence Charge).

Term based Licencing (TBL)

Effectively an extended rental over 2 or 3 years, plus an ALC per year. Seen as a more cost-effective option than investing in YLC year on year, but does have higher first-year investment due to initial ALC. Typically 2-year TBL saving over 2xYLC is approx 15% and for 3-years 23%. The first year ALC is charged in advance and subsequent years on anniversary expiry dates.

ReImagine JLR

Today, it’s time to reimagine the next chapter for this unique business and for the two unique brands it represents: Jaguar and Land Rover.
Two brands. Two distinct personalities. Both connected by the elements of quality and sustainability that underpin Jaguar Land Rover’s future of modern luxury by design.

This is our Reimagine Strategy.

Thierry Bolloré, Chief Executive Officer

Two distinct modern luxury brands with Sustainability at the centre.  At the heart of Reimagine will be the electrification of both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands.
