Bengaluru—Dassault Systèmes at the 12th Edition of Aero India show, showcased how its 3DEXPERIENCE platform is enabling Airframe OEMs & Aerospace suppliers to accelerate innovation, produce faster and deliver improved designs at a reduced cost, thereby creating new business opportunities. Dassault Systèmes’ demonstration at Aero India 2019 at booth AB2.19I, paves the way for companies to innovate in the era of Industry Renaissance with the help of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It illustrated the following steps that companies must adopt to catalyze this transformation.
Accelerate innovation: The modern Aerospace & Defense segment requires rapid design and development cycles, transforming dynamically in an agile mode and shortening time-to-market to gain an early mover advantage. Dassault Systèmes’ collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform, combined with system engineering, prototyping, and stress-testing capabilities, help customers achieve their innovation goals. At Aero India 2019, we showcase how Airbus leveraged 3DEXPERIENCE platform to transform how they work. Airbus needed a channel for collaborating with global experts, expediting design processes that took over a year. Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform was introduced to build a ½ full-scale TRU prototype in 90 days. Meet our experts to know how we completed a full-scale prototype in just 84 days.
Reduce costs and improve design: With aircraft systems getting increasingly more complex, companies must integrate multiple new technologies to meet demands. These include changing passenger expectations, cost pressures, and uptime targets. As a result, it is now critical to remove any inefficiency in the design-to-delivery value chain or risk losing market share to competitors. Dassault Systèmes helps action significant process improvements in conceptualizing, manufacturing, testing, and obtaining certification for a new aircraft. This is powered by our xCAD Collaborative Engineering expertise, OnePart & enterprise marketplace, and real-time dashboards to view the process and engineering KPIs. To aid SME suppliers, we also offer bidding process automation, real-time project monitoring, cloud-based resource scalability, and Digital Continuity through 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
All of this and more is demonstrated at Aero India 2019, helping OEMs/suppliers comply to schedule, cost, and specification objectives.
Increase production speeds for market leadership: Over the next few decades, airline fleet modernization and aircraft retirements will add to current aviation order backlogs. While companies traditionally scale up production by onboarding new resources, this can cause cost and quality issues. On the other hand, automation is only a short term solution; companies require genuine flexibility and robust technical competencies to achieve the desired production rates. At Aero India 2019, Dassault Systèmes will explore how flow simulation, MES, advanced planning & scheduling, lean dashboards, and other such methodologies could help produce faster. Instead of treating design, planning, validation, and execution as separate silos, we believe companies should adopt an integrated approach, gaining a competitive edge without compromising on quality.
Discover new areas of profitability: As aerospace companies enter a period of ‘Industry Renaissance’, a completely new way of working is imminent. This is led by on-demand mobility, alternative manufacturing materials, high-density batteries, embedded sensors, and other technology advancements. We could even imagine switching from ground to air mobility in order to avoid urban traffic, in the near future. Dassault Systèmes is committed to supporting disruptive projects in areas such as these. As startups forge new pathways based on ‘manufacturing lab ecosystems’ (instead of established operators simply expanding their portfolios) we bolster these initiatives via:
– Digital continuity from concept to flight
– Controlled execution through KPI visibility
– Scalable business solutions, on-premise or on cloud
