3D design, digital mock up and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions provider Dassault Systèmes has launched Engineered to Fly, its latest aerospace and defence industry solution experience.
The solution, which was unveiled at the company’s North America 3DEXPERIENCE Forum, is tailored for small- and medium-sized aerospace and defence suppliers to help them enhance productivity from bid to delivery.
“Engineered to Fly sets a new standard in productivity with dedicated solutions for each major commodity class, from machined parts to composites, sheet metal, systems and installations,” said Michel Tellier, vice president of the Aerospace and Defence Industry at Dassault Systèmes. “This solution for aerospace and defence suppliers maintains digital continuity from design engineering to manufacturing while securing intellectual property (IP). Benchmarks conducted by our customers consistently indicate productivity improvements of 40% and reduced cost of ownership by as much as 15% versus current state-of-the-art methods.”
Features and capabilities in Engineered to Fly include driven and controlled execution, allowing collaboration with multiple OEMs while maintaining fully secure IP; real-time project execution, predefined templates and automated processes; and dedicated solutions for each major design class covering the process from design engineering to manufacturing and production.
“As we expand our design and installation business for high-end large aircraft interiors, Dassault Systèmes’ Engineered to Fly offers us seamless collaboration across our design disciplines and simplicity when working with large assemblies. The resulting engineering productivity is critical as we enter a crucial phase in our history,” said Stephen Shaffer, CIO of GDC Technics – a Dassault Systèmes customer. “Inceptra, our Dassault Systèmes’ solutions partner, has been instrumental in guiding the successful implementation as we adopt the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. We anticipate continued improvement as we enter phase two of the deployment.”
