DELMIA: The Missing Link for Consumer Goods Manufacturers

Connecting Digital Design and Manufacturing Improvements

Digital design and simulation are standard engineering practices by now. But the recognized value of those digital processes raises two questions for manufacturing operations. How do digital files stay relevant and current when the digital design transitions into physical production? And how can organizations apply digital best practices beyond the design and simulation phases?

The answer is powerful solutions like DELMIA, part of Dassault Systèmes’ My Product Portfolio for consumer goods manufacturers. DELMIA helps global businesses reimagine approaches to manufacturing, by virtually planning, analyzing, revising, and simulating production flows—from the supply chain down to machine tool paths. Doing so allows manufacturers to optimize production planning, asset productivity, on-time delivery, and customer relationships, while simultaneously reducing working capital, production cycle times, and inventories.

DELMIA also ensures digital continuity, a shared digital landscape connecting all stakeholders to improve visibility into, control over, and synchronization across manufacturing operations and supply chain processes on a global scale. Because in this day and age, having your digital house in order is vital for any enterprise that expects to be competitive in a crowded and fast-paced consumer goods marketplace—manufacturing digitalization isn’t an option, it’s a necessity.

With the world, economy, and particularly the consumer goods market moving faster than ever, manufacturers are looking for every possible efficiency—looking to get the most out of manufacturing, logistics, supply chain ops, and everything else. Everyone wants to be faster, develop faster, build faster, and sell more. Using technology to uncover and create operational efficiencies is the best way to do it.

Engineer, Operate, Optimize

DELMIA enables manufacturers to address three fundamental aspects of manufacturing: engineering or designing the process, operations information and management capability, and optimization or continuous improvement of systems.

To improve engineering practices, manufacturers use DELMIA to review and structure all industrial processes, with the goal of eliminating time and waste. By creating digital models that virtually simulate products, processes, and factory operations, they can improve processes to quickly respond to the competition or a market opportunity.

Specific engineering capabilities offered as part of DELMIA include collaborative manufacturing, to connect manufacturing stakeholders; process planning, allowing for design and validation of manufacturing processes; robotics, for programming and simulating industrial robots; fabrication, for programming and simulation of machining and additive manufacturing; and ergonomics, for designing human-centered production and workplace environments.

To address operations efficiencies, DELMIA manufacturing operations management (MOM) solutions provide manufacturers with a continuum of visibility, control, and synchronization of operational activities, in a common platform to ensure unified visibility and control. Functionality includes the ability to examine and improve global production processes, schedules, and resources from workers to IIoT equipment, as well as to increase labor efficiency and productivity.

DELMIA can also help manufacturers make advances in quality across manufacturing operations, while also extracting data for regulatory compliance and continuous improvement. In addition, it allows manufacturers to synchronize warehouse manufacturing, inventory, and logistics—just in time—and perform maintenance, maximizing asset performance and uptime, and avoiding unplanned or service disruptions.

Above all, DELMIA helps manufacturers optimize—continuously. For sales and operations planning, the platform offers advanced modeling and optimization capabilities to simulate any scenario in a sales and ops cycle, to consistently deliver maximum value. For master planning, DELMIA advances global decision support with real-time visibility and predictive analysis for master planning and scheduling and material requirements planning. And for detailed production scheduling, it helps reduce lead time and inventory by optimizing production within and across production lines, work cells, and assembly operations—all while improving asset utilization and throughput.

The Prodtex director of production technology, Peter Helgosson, sums up the benefit: “Virtual simulation with DELMIA enabled us to prove our build concept, verify the assembly path of the parts in the factory, and more efficiently balance the workload between stations, thereby reducing overall lead times.”

Not Just the Software, But the Solution

DELMIA on its own offers a wide variety of benefits, but as part of Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform and, more specifically, the My Product Portfolio solution for consumer goods manufacturers, it delivers even more value. My Product Portfolio offers not only the software platform but also a set of industry process experiences, focused around collaboration and community, project management, BOM and change management, mechanical design, performance testing and simulation, mold and tooling, and machining. With it, manufacturers can collaborate on a global basis and improve communications, with the aim of reducing time-to-market.

In addition, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform streamlines internal operations, establishing a single source of truth for all information about a product, enhancing cross-functional communication, and enabling the tracking of product data from design to production. In this day and age, consumer goods manufacturers can’t afford to do less.

2018 Adaptive User Conference Review

The 2018 Adaptive User Conference is now over. This year’s conference matched customers with industry experts, Adaptive employees and Dassault Systèmes all-stars to share visions and strategies about the future of PLM. We also mixed in some nice networking and dining experiences topped off by a dinner at the cozy Staller Winery. We look forward to planning an expanded event for next year. If you attended the event and want to share your experiences, feel free to comment below or send me an email.

Day One Conference Summary

The event was kicked off by Adaptive CEO Eric Doubell who greeted the attendees and discussed how Adaptive works with customers to meet their product lifecycle management needs.

Eric introduced keynote speaker John Hayes, President of Engineering.com who presented the Six Reasons Why Your Product Design Practices Won’t Survive in 2020. John’s an engineer turned journalist who conducts ongoing research into the latest engineering trends. In his opinion, we are experiencing an exciting time in technology. Today’s technology disruptions are bigger than CAD was in the 1990s. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a great example of how technology is disrupting everyday life. For instance, the evolution of miniaturized sensors can instrument any products you make. John went on to discuss Digital Twin as a mainstream strategic technology. He acknowledged Dassault Systèmes for creating a platform which knits technologies together to share a common view of data. John also discussed other leading trends including Augmented/Virtual Reality, Machine Learning, and Products as a Service.

The conference continued with a presentation from Ramesh Haldorai of Dassault Systèmes who discussed how companies are using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to accelerate the digital design process. Kevin Baughey, Head of Product Development for the ENOVIA brand discussed how to achieve true concurrent engineering through digitalization. Next, Scott Pokriefka of Dassault Systèmes explained how the POWER’BY strategy enables users of CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS, and other design software connect to and leverage the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

After lunch, Bill Ruccio discussed how to develop an effective Quality Management process on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Bill’s presentation was followed by a customer presentation from Luis Dominguez of Atlas Copco and how they’re implementing quality processes in their PLM environment. Ramesh Haldorai and Kevin Baughey followed with a joint presentation on Modeling and Simulation Mechatronics Behavior. Kevin went on to discuss how to measure process effectiveness using ENOVIA PLM analytics.

The day wrapped up with a lively roundtable discussion about PLM cloud implementation challenges. How to deal with customizations and developing PLM deployment roadmaps were both popular discussion topics.

That evening we enjoyed a visit to the Staller Winery. This quaint, family-run winery hosted a wonderful wine pairing dinner.

Day Two Summary

Day two kicked off with a keynote presentation by Razorleaf Chief Architect Jonathan Scott. He presented an excellent overview of how to start your model-based enterprise and digital thread journey. Jonathan defined the model-based enterprise and what a digital thread should be. He then went on to discuss how companies could implement these digitalization strategies.

Jonathan’s keynote was followed by Matt Derov of the SIMULIA brand who presented ways to manage simulation data and processes. Kevin Baughey joined us again for a presentation about linking design intent to the plant floor and discussed the differences between engineering bill of materials (EBOM) and manufacturing bill of material (MBOM) processes.

Representatives of Oceaneering discussed how they were able to deploy the 3DEXPERIENCE platform across their global engineering organization. They were followed by Dave Pimblett of the Dassault Systèmes DELMIA brand who demonstrated how to expand the model-based enterprise to manufacturing operations and scheduling.

Get Seamless Collaboration Capabilities With New VR Simulation System

A new breakthrough in 3D solutions makes it possible for companies to connect distributed teams, reduce travel costs, and allow instant collaboration—with a single click. The Immersive Collaboration Experience (ICE), part of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, allows multiple individuals working in CATIA to seamlessly move from the CAD program to “touring” the 3D design in virtual reality (VR).

View CATIA in VR

What sets CATIA’s ICE functionality apart from other solutions used in the industry is its complete integration into the 3D platform. An individual can work in CATIA, message a collaborator through the 3DEXPERIENCE system, and send a co-review invitation. Both collaborators put on headsets, pick up wands, and simply click to launch the collaborative VR experience. Unlike other arrangements where moving from a 3D design to a VR solution can require multiple pieces of software and a file conversion process, ICE requires only one click to move from a CATIA 3D design to VR and back again. In addition, ICE works for all data brought into the CATIA platform—whether original designs, imported CAD files, scanned data, and simulation results.

Even better, design changes made in CATIA appear in the VR environment in real-time, meaning one collaborator can exit VR and make a quick change, which the other collaborator can see and comment immediately. The system is optimized for two collaborators—both will have avatars in the VR scene, and ICE can run on either cloud or on-premise sessions—but as many as four individuals can participate in the VR session, and each will have his or her own user ID.

When participants are in the VR session, they have a full range of movement in the virtual 3D space—allowing for enhanced communication with natural gestures. “Goto” commands allow users to teleport to any location in the scene, including another collaborator’s view. When that happens, or any time one participant’s view gets close to that of another participant, avatars are “ghosted” or made invisible, so they don’t block the view of the model.

Watch Immersive Collaboration Experience Video

The VR solution also works smoothly with other components of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, such as the visual experience content collection (VCC), which has recently been enhanced to offer more out-of-the-box options. With VCC, designers have a wide range of materials available to apply to their designs. Mathematical algorithms form the basis of materials including leathers, fabrics, car paint, metals, plastics, carbon fiber, glasses, woods, nature, and stones. VCC also offers a variety of 3D environments that designs can be placed in for the VR session, from interiors such as warehouses to exteriors such as parks and street scenes. Designers can also import their own photos and/or environments to customize the 3D design, with no loss of performance in the VR environment.

ICE is a welcome addition to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s complete and streamlined solution for 3D design. With collaboration and a VR session—complete with realistic materials, textures, and environments—available at any time throughout the design solution via a single click, ICE enables multiple users to experience the same immersive design review in a shared world. The solution brings an enhanced spatial understanding of the product design to extended teams, no matter where they’re located, for faster, more accurate team decisions.
