Evernham Motorsports operates two teams sponsored by Dodge and will add a third Dodge team, sponsored by Valvoline, in the 2006 season. Like Dodge parent DaimlerChrysler, Evernham relies on IBM PLM, including CATIA V5 and SMARTEAM from Dassault Systèmes, in its engineering program.
To achieve its goal of excellence through engineering, NASCAR team Evernham Motorsports needed to replace a mixture of mismatched engineering tools.
Dassault Systèmes Response
Evernham chose IBM Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), including CATIA V5 and SMARTEAM from Dassault Systèmes, for their engineering power and data exchange capabilities with Dodge, its primary sponsor.
IBM PLM solutions allow Evernham to quickly respond to NASCAR rule changes, exploit simulation and analysis to maximize each car’s performance, and cut cycle times by 50 percent.
