Dana Holding Corporation

United States : Industry

Dana Holding Corporation is a world leader in the supply of axles; driveshafts; off-highway transmissions; sealing and thermal management products; and genuine service parts.

The Challenge

As part of their transition to an engineering-driven company, Dana needed a powerful tool to connect their broad library of computer-aided engineering software resources with the rest of their business and decision-making processes. They wanted to cost-effectively track and manage data, processes and product development, and improve collaboration both internally and with their customers across their global automotive supply business.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Dana has instituted an enterprise-wide deployment of SIMULIA SLM from Dassault Systèmes to define and manage all their simulation methods, models and procedures.


Streamlining product data management by implementing SLM throughout the enterprise, Dana is saving significant resources through automation and is realizing up to 25% time-savings in their CAE projects, while fostering more effective collaboration among their engineering teams and with their customers.
