Car manufacturer PSA Peugeot Citroën has leveraged Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA digital manufacturing applications to simplify its robotics planning process and reduce mistakes during manufacturing.
Leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, PSA Peugeot Citroën aims to simplify the innovation process of its body-in-white division, which welds the car body sheet metal components together.
Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, PSA Peugeot Citroën’s implementation now supports the earliest stages of production layout including advanced robotics simulation, feasibility studies, final assembly simulation, painting, power train, and stamping.
“We decided to extend our use of the Dassault Systèmes portfolio to our body-in-white division to create a seamless, digital continuity between engineering and manufacturing which we believe is key to strengthen our overall business agility,” said Sébastien Gagnepain, process and digital factory coordinator, PSA Peugeot Citroën. “We are expecting significant productivity gains in tooling design, analysis time calculation and offline programming.”
DELMIA Robotics simulation applications have helped to improve how a car’s openings, panels, structures and underbodies are manufactured. It has also integrated product and processes, enabling teams to detect potential errors and collisions that can lead to material waste.
By integrating robotics simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, PSA Peugeot Citroën will increase its plant flexibility and strengthen its modularisation strategy by reinforcing standardisation and production line reuse from one car programme to the next.
