Guillaume Vendroux, CEO of Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA software brand believes we are at the end of an era. The era of Industry 4.0 which began close to a decade ago is giving way to the next – the Age of Experience – an era where products are no longer enough, fast-shifting consumer preferences demand more agile manufacturing, and companies are trying to keep up with rapid technological innovations to meet consumer demand. In a recent Forbes article, “Beyond Industry 4.0: Getting To Tomorrow’s Manufacturing Solutions Today,” Vendroux explains his vision of the Age of Experience.
According to Vendroux, “What customers want now is not just a product, but a highly customized rich and complex experience, with a ‘series of one’ (built to order for the individual) that’s available quickly. And their tolerance level for ‘pain’ (anything short of the experience they expect) is lower than ever before.”
To optimize the manufacturing process, Dassault Systèmes’ brand DELMIA, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers digital manufacturing solutions that tackle key challenges for example, enabling companies to simulate and model the manufacturing plant in 3D to eliminate potential risks and quality issues before production, providing real-time information and seamless communication throughout the entire enterprise and supply chain in a single version of the truth, and full digital continuity to improve data and analytics capabilities. Dassault Systèmes is making this vision a reality for big businesses like Boeing, Honda and other leaders moving to digital experience platforms in the Age of Experience.
