April 18, 2016 – Desktop Engineering: Examining Design in the Age of Experience

Starbucks gets it. So does Domino’s Pizza. And Dassault Systèmes does as well.  Starbucks customers pay upwards of $5 a drink, but they get much more than coffee. Domino’s Pizza prides itself on delivery, therefore bringing an unaccustomed service to pizza-lovers. And Dassault Systèmes has a vision for design that goes far beyond the tools for creating a physical product, creating a broad vision for the future. These companies understand that today’s consumer, whether looking for coffee or pizza, a new car or an environmentally responsible home, want more than an item in hand. It’s all about the experience, in-person and socially connected.

But if you’re a fantasy fiction and film buff, you might find other uses of the software.
