Be Part of the “Industry Renaissance” with Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE PLM Platform

Challenge and opportunity can be said to be different sides of the same coin. Certainly that’s true for industry these days—especially for those in the product development and manufacturing space. The recent cover story in Compass Magazine, “Industry Renaissance transforms invention, learning, production and trade,” makes the case that the change going on in the current era is so profound that it rivals the invention of the printing press for how it reshapes society.

Welcome to the era of the “experience.” Gone are the days of manufacturing a simple, physical product. Today it’s all about solutions, services, and experiences—sometimes that’s a physical product plus an experience, sometimes that’s simply a service or experience with no tangible goods. Manufacturers—big and small, traditional and not—all scramble to meet what the Compass Magazine piece calls consumers’ “insatiable appetite for faster, slicker, personalized services.”

What makes the difference in this new market paradigm is the ability to virtualize and collaborate digitally, and to do that—to stay in the game—you’ve got to have the right tools.

What tools do you need?

To respond to customers and the market quickly, to adapt and personalize products, and to integrate physical products with services and experiences, manufacturers can’t rely on traditional habits, processes, and systems.

  • Everything must be digital. Siloed information in filing cabinets isn’t going to cut it in the digital age, so the first key is you need all of your product information, from customer requests and preliminary designs to simulation and test data to marketing and supplier information, in digital form.
  • Everything must be accessible to everyone. You also need all of that information in a single location, where it can be accessed by everyone who needs it. Customer input, marketing material, design files, manufacturing drawings, manufacturing workflows, and more should be co-located in a product file—a single source of truth for critical enterprise data.
  • You’ve got to be able to collaborate. Everyone, everywhere access for corporate data is critical, but so is the ability for team members—and members of different cross-functional teams—to collaborate and share knowledge and know-how. As Shunqun Yang, from Yellow River Engineering Consulting, an international architectural engineering firm based in Zhengzhou, China, explains, “In traditional design, multiple layers of human reviews are required to avoid errors, omissions and collisions. However, with the single data source and real-time collaboration possible on our experience platform, a [single] review can identify and resolve problems early and avoid repeated modifications.” (Quoted in Compass Magazine.)

Be Part of the Renaissance with 3DEXPERIENCE

Dassault Systèmes’ product lifecycle management (PLM) platform, 3DEXPERIENCE ensures you have no more silos and no more islands of information. As one of the premier PLM platforms, it helps manufacturers manage a product from initial idea or request through to service after manufacturing, offering virtualization, collaboration support, and digital efficiency at every step along the way.

It starts with a centralized database, a single repository or vault where all product data is stored, accessible by everyone in—and even out of—the company who needs to participate. As members of the platform, individuals can view shared data, be part of collaborative tasks, and participate in virtual communities around project work. They can collaborate on design, simulation, virtual testing, manufacturing planning and simulation, and other tasks, communicating and saving all notes, changes, versions, and even automated approval routes through the centralized platform.

3DEXPERIENCE can help your organization transform your processes to ensure you take part in the Industry Renaissance. For more information, contact Adaptive.

Driving Innovation in a 5G World

Every new advance in technology means a boon for consumers—and a challenge for manufacturers. One of the latest challenges is 5G technology, which looks to provide fast communication, reliable low-latency data links, and support for vast quantities of connected devices. 5G promises new ways of doing business across a variety of industries, from smart manufacturing to safe autonomous driving and remote surgery.

Of course, our devices need to be designed to make use of it—and quickly—and that’s where manufacturers face a bumpy road. They have to deliver high-performance designs in a short time frame with no compromise to compliance, reliability, and safety. Fortunately, just as consumer technology advances by leaps and bounds, so does the technology they need to be competitive.

Digital Simulation is Critical for Innovation

Like many manufacturers designing and producing physical consumer goods, device manufacturers can improve the efficiency, speed, and reliability of their designs by making use of simulation technology. By employing virtual simulation throughout the design process, from early concept exploration to virtual compliance testing, they can save time and money by only making and testing physical prototypes when the digital simulations are error-free.

Fully integrated platforms, such as Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE, which combines simulation, modeling, manufacturing, collaboration, and intelligence apps in a single package, make the virtual simulation effort seamless.

In addition to the basic capacity in 3DEXPERIENCE for managing complex data and design variations, it’s SIMULIA solution includes CST software for electromagnetics which provides a number of advanced benefits:

  • The ability to simulate full 5G systems in their environment, including the human body.
  • Electromagnetic simulation speeds of up to ten times that of other simulation approaches.
  • High performance computing (HPC) capabilities to explore alternate designs in parallel and meet short product timelines.
  • A library of designable antenna models for rapid synthesis, modeling, and simulation.
  • A complete multiphysics portfolio including structural, thermal, and fluids for co-simulation.
  • High-fidelity design exploration via Design of Experiments capabilities.
  • The ability to create key performance indicators (KPIs) and regulatory results with automated post-processing.

For enterprises looking to develop new products that utilize 5G technology on time and in budget, an integrated platform such as 3DEXPERIENCE can be the answer. For more information on how to maximize your installation and configuration, contact Adaptive.

Improve Productivity and Double Product Development Speed with 3DEXPERIENCE

New data from Dassault Systèmes demonstrates how companies can improve productivity by 30% and accelerate product development by 100%, simply by moving to 3DEXPERIENCE, Dassault’s comprehensive product lifecycle management (PLM) platform.

The Problem

Many organizations are still working with a static, on-premise set of siloed applications. CAD, CAE, MFG, and PLM software each evolved individually, and as such, each has its own data set and its own user interface, 3D modeler, data model, file format, and security configuration. Using data from one application in another means transferring and translating it—which often necessitates a PDM system to manage file versions and traceability, increasing the number of non–value added activities employees must perform just to access data.

In addition, the quantity of data in the organization—no small matter with large file packages—and the potential for mistakes increase exponentially as employees copy files onto local machines. Not only does this result in multiple static versions of data, but it also means a huge likelihood of wasted work, rework, or errors when individuals or teams use the wrong versions of files.

Siloed applications didn’t create siloed disciplines, but their separation doesn’t encourage cooperation. Mechanical, electrical, and systems teams build their own models in their own separate domains, and the first time any team sees the systems fully integrated and the whole product working often isn’t until a physical prototype is tested. It’s no surprise physical prototypes sometimes don’t work even after more than 100 build-test-fix iterations, which means projects are delayed and quality suffers.

The Solution

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unified system with more than 500 applications built natively on a digital platform with just one UI, 3D modeler, data models, and security. Each application accesses data from the shared platform without the need to share, transfer, or translate files between formats. Available on-premise or on-cloud, 3DEXPERIENCE is the single, authoritative source of data—real-time information available to all participants in the system—which eliminates local copies of files, as well as all of the non–value added activities, and increases productivity by as much as 30%.

3DEXPERIENCE also promotes collaboration, since multi-disciplinary teams can work together on a single virtual definition, from a single platform. With the software’s robust test and simulation capabilities, teams can virtually build, test, and fix all issues before ever creating a first physical prototype. This results in a high probability of the first physical prototype actually working as intended, as well as a greatly reduced number of physical build-test-fix iterations. Overall, a coordinated, collaborative platform with shared, synchronized data and leading-edge virtual simulation and testing tools means organizations can dramatically improve their product development speed.
