Dassault Systèmes, Velizy-Villacoublay, France, and Boeing, Chicago, USA, have extended their partnership. Boeing will now expand its deployment of Dassault Systèmes’ products across its commercial aviation, space and defence programs to include the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
According to Dassault Systèmes, this decision follows a competitive process including the rigorous analysis of technical and functional capabilities, cost and business benefits across the value chain. Boeing will deploy the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in phases and will rely on industry solution’s providers Winning Program, Co-Design to Target, Ready for Rate, Build to Operate and License to Fly to deepen its end-to-end digital collaboration, design, engineering, analysis, manufacturing planning and shop floor execution capabilities throughout the enterprise.
3DEXPERIENCE is a Business Experience Platform which is operated via a single interface and delivers industry solutions based on 3D design, analysis, simulation and intelligence software. It integrates an intuitive, web-based user interface with the ability to create collaborative environments for teamwork and group development. Using 3DEXPERIENCE, users can start multidisciplinary projects in the workplace, continue at home and discuss design issues using online communities or screen-sharing sessions. At any time, supervisors can remotely monitor projects and provide guidance and instruction.
“Dassault Systèmes is proud to collaborate with Boeing as it embarks on another century of innovation with a partner it trusts,” stated Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “Boeing not only leads the way in its own industry, but influences the progress of all industries across modern society. We are at the turning point of the industrial era, where we are shattering another industry paradigm. The parallel exchange of data between virtual and real operations will transform the value-adding chain into a value creation chain. The entire ‘extended’ enterprise can continuously measure and control business processes for maximum efficiency and potential top line growth. This is ‘Business in the Age of Experience.’”
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform can reportedly reduce integration and support costs, improve productivity, foster new innovation and aid in the introduction of best practice processes to deliver standard work across the value chain.
“The decision to adopt Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a key milestone in our digital transformation,” stated Ted Colbert, Chief Information Officer and Senior VP of Information Technology & Data Analytics, Boeing. “This digital enabler provides global design and manufacturing capabilities that will fuel our second century. The value of this extended strategic partnership is a mutual desire to transform how Boeing connects, protects, explores and inspires the world.”
