Achieve success in the sustainable economy with virtual worlds

REINVENT THE SKY is Dassault Systemes’ visionary theme for the 53rd International Paris Air Show being held June 17-23, 2019. Our 38-year legacy fostering aerospace innovation has helped shape the industry of flight, from pioneering digital design to imagining and implementing solar-powered aircraft and now disrupting the industry with new types of mobility.

We’re all part of a global Industry Renaissance that is bringing new ways of creating (both real and virtual) to all sectors of industry and aspects of society as we have known them. But it’s also taking us a step further—enabling new categories of business that are identifying new categories of customers and then creating new solutions that are transforming the way we live.

Digital experience platforms are the infrastructures that enable the Industry Renaissance. They’ve already changed retail (think about Amazon and Alibaba), transportation (Uber and Lyft) and tourism (Airbnb). Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the catalyst and enabler that fundamentally changes the way industries work. It is the first end-to-end digital platform recognized globally as a catalyst to conceptualize, design, manufacture, test, certify and operate any product experience for any industrial sector.

Catalyzing and enabling 21st century Industry Renaissance is first and foremost about answering the challenges of sustainability. Sustainability has become a societal and a business imperative. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform connects knowledge and know-how for companies so they can truly understand the impact of ideas and processes to achieve a more sustainable world. It transforms industry from just a means of production into a process of value creation.

The ability to go beyond digitalization with a connected, responsive platform is game changing. Teams can easily collaborate and explore new innovations in real time, with new ways of working that are more sustainable, more efficient, more tested and more successful. Companies can manage the growing complexity of experiences and design for manufacturing, efficiently connect value networks and deliver high performance operations—all critical elements of a sustainable economy.

For the Aerospace and Defense industry, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps accelerate product programs to be first to market. Already companies – both big and small – are benefiting from new ways of designing, manufacturing and maintaining air vehicles. They’re utilizing new composite materials, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing and electric propulsion to create everything from unmanned aerial vehicles to supersonic airliners to electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft to all new air mobility concepts.

The virtual world extends and improves the real world. Achieving a more sustainable future is only possible by leveraging the virtual world. There we can simulate and evaluate impacts and improve the product itself, even before we make it.

Discover the 3DEXPERIENCE platform as a game-changer for Aerospace and Defense and for all industries. I hope to see you at the Dassault Systèmes’ exhibit at the Paris Air Show. Please stop by and say hello and let’s look at how we can together achieve success in the sustainable economy.
