Boeing has extended its partnership with Dassault Systèmes, allowing the company to expand its use of Dassault Systèmes’ solution portfolio.
Moving forward, Boeing will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform across its commercial aviation, space and defence programmes.
Using solutions such Winning Program, Co-Design to Target, Ready for Rate, Build to Operate and License to Fly, Boeing is aiming to expand its end-to-end digital collaboration, design and engineering practices.
Other benefits will include enhanced analysis, improved manufacturing planning and greater shop floor execution capabilities.
“The decision to adopt Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a key milestone in our digital transformation,” said Ted Colbert, chief information officer and senior vice president 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.”
Using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Boeing will be able to reduce integration and support costs, while supporting productivity and innovation. Risk and quality issues can be more readily identified, and actionable real-time information acquired and analysed.
“Boeing not only leads the way in its own industry, but influences the progress of all industries across modern society,” said Bernard Charlès, vice chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “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.”
