Dassault Systèmes has teamed up with BoostAeroSpace to launch AirDesign, the European aerospace and defence industry’s collaboration platform.
AirDesign is a scalable collaboration platform available as a service on a high-security, private cloud or on-premise.
The platform provides a neutral workspace for advance original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and partner product lifecycle management (PLM) collaboration, and is designed to integrate all the key aerospace and defence industry players, from OEMs to small and medium businesses.
BoostAeroSpace is the European aerospace and defence digital exchange hub, and will distribute the new platform alongside Dassault Systèmes.
“The very complex problems of orchestrating aerospace and defence PLM systems between multiple partners have been solved with AirDesign,” said Jean Ferlus, CEO of BoostAeroSpace. “Its ability to handle and synchronise the exchange of highly secured PLM data has a positive effect on the quality, efficiency and productivity of the European aerospace industry. It gives the industry a strong application to support development.”
The new platform is powered by Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which runs on Microsoft Windows, and the company’s ENOVIA application.
AirDesign reduces operational costs for partners thanks to a single infrastructure, open standards and common exchange methods. Existing information systems are not impacted, and the platform was requested and defined by all the primary European OEMs in order to facilitate exchanges, support ecosystems and generate new opportunities with services.
The digital exchange hub of AirDesign delivers capabilities which enable OEMs to organise exchanges in the context of projects. The hub also offers an integrated, secured and automatic technical data package exchange, and the traceability needed for complex programs is a native capability. Furthermore, the hub delivers access to a wide variety of services that a partner can use during an exchange.
“AirDesign provides an environment for aerospace and defence industry partners to accelerate and sustain collaborative innovation,” said Michel Tellier, vice president, Aerospace & Defence Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “It opens a large number of opportunities for suppliers of all sizes, as they will join an on-the-cloud mutualised infrastructure, spending the money and resources normally needed for an IT infrastructure on developing their business with more customers.”
