Solution will be used to improve the manufacturer’s civil and military aircraft operations
France-based aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation is to adopt Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
The multi-year agreement will see Dassault Aviation replacing its current civil and military aircraft programmes with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This will allow Dassault Aviation to respond to business challenges and expand the Falcon range of business jets, evolve the Rafale fighter, and cooperatively develop the future combat aircraft and the MALE observation unmanned aerial vehicle.
“As an industrial architect and integrator of complex aeronautical systems, the backbone of a strategic industrial fabric with hundreds of companies in France and abroad, Dassault Aviation has always implemented the best digital processes to design, manufacture and support the products and services expected by our civil and military customers throughout the world,” said Eric Trappier, chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Today, we are convinced that 3DEXPERIENCE is the most advanced solution to support all our businesses.”
Dassault Aviation will also use the platform as a vehicle for business integration and transformation and integrating business model, industrial model, development and support.
“This illustrates perfectly the multi-faceted dimension of collaborative innovation that enables us to offer unique experiences to our prestigious clients,” said Bernard Charlès, vice chairman of the board of directors and CEO of Dassault Systèmes. “Digital business twins, enabling the integration of products with services, are a perfect illustration of the industry of the 21st century.”
