Collaborative Design and Industrialized Construction
The AEC track on the afternoon of November 11, 2014 inspired participants to take on industry challenges such as providing a high quality experience for tenants while completing under budgets, maintaining sustainability, improving project productivity and efficiency, and ensuring construction worker safety.
Attendees were also encouraged to envision the future of their firms by understanding how Owners, Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Product Manufacturers, and Fabricators can collaborate using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in a cloud environment to achieve efficient, industrialized construction practices and BIM Level 3 adoptions.
In the opening session, speaker Marty Doscher (Vice President, Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Dassault Systèmes) discussed how 3D adoption has spread through the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry and that now is the time to evolve to BIM Level 3.
This session explained how 3DEXPERIENCE Business Solutions provides the new and innovative scheme of design and construction processes delivering Building Life Cycle Management.

The comprehensive project management and execution solutions leverage the power of 3D to efficiently and consistently cover construction project requirements end-to-end, from planning to fabrication.
Advanced BIM Coordination and Delivery Practices
Speaker Becher Neme (Principal and Lead consultant of Neme Design Solution) led Advanced BIM Coordination and Delivery Practices, which outlined how Designers and Contractors can preserve design intent, lower risk, and improve efficiency during construction on complex project through the expert application of the latest 3D technologies.
From Concept to Fabrication, BIM Implementation Practices: Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Speaker Kerenza Harris of Morphosis Architects illustrated the application of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to enable new collaborative environments in her session, From Concept to Fabrication, BIM Implementation Practices: Perot Museum of Nature and Science.
The team at Morphosis continually seeks new ways to implement BIM technology, from early design development to final fabrication and shop drawings.
With a specific emphasis on the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Harris spoke about the integration of Advanced Computation and BIM platforms into project workflow.
Parametric Tendencies and Design Agencies: Preparing For the AEC Industry Through Design Centric Collaboration and Performance
Dr. David Gerber (Assistant Professor of Architecture, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern California) presented the evolution of CATIA-based teaching, consulting, and research in his session, Parametric Tendencies and Design Agencies: Preparing For the AEC Industry Through Design Centric Collaboration and Performance.
This discussion highlighted the importance of bottom-up and top-down educational and research strategies, and linked these strategies to meeting the needs of AEC industry challenges and value propositions.
Mobility Services to Gain Quality of Life in 2030: the Modul’Air Experience
Stephan J. Clambaneva (Design Business Consultant Director, Design Studio, Dassault Systemes) presented Mobility Services to Gain Quality of Life in 2030: the Modul’Air Experience, a seminar on the power of 3DEXPERIENCE for future city development.
Modul’Air, a radical rethink of the mobility experience, is based on an innovative system of seamlessly connected pods transporting passengers and freight. These pods scale up and down according to volume patterns, and integrate with ground transportation modes.
