Increase Innovation, Lower Costs

Co-Design to Target Industry Solution Experience helps large manufacturers and their suppliers improve program execution to meet cost, schedule and performance targets. Performing to schedule ensures companies can avoid millions of dollars in potential contract penalties by meeting product delivery dates. Reducing complexity in product development by integrating engineering and functions allows companies to reap the benefit of significantly lower costs - non-recurring (e.g., reduced design time, avoiding issues late in the design cycle) and recurring (e.g., minimizing parts and optimizing manufacturing).

Having access to real time status of key performance indicators means program management and extended teams always know performance to plan. When programs stay on track companies can spend more time on innovation and minimizing risks all while lowering costs up front. For more information go to:

Delivering Future Factory Capabilities

The Build to Operate Industry Solution Experience, along with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, accelerates meeting production targets and increases manufacturing capacity. The solution offers aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and large suppliers the ability to implement lean practices and meet demand without sacrificing either quality or schedule. Over the next decades, airline fleet modernization and aircraft retirement will continue to feed the growth of commercial aviation. This drives the need for continuous improvement of both new and existing production lines.

Build to Operate, based on DELMIA Apriso, offers Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) capabilities to monitor, control and validate all aspects of manufacturing with digital precision throughout the supply chain on a global scale. For more information go to:

Automation and Emotion Key to Competitiveness

Aerospace & Defense executives recognize the need to provide outstanding service to customers. In their quest to become customer driven, many companies have resorted to inventing new ideas and procedures to meet customer expectations. One option is to embrace open innovation, co-creation, or mass-customization to fulfill consumer needs and deliver personalized services / products. But many companies remain blocked by the challenges of managing the trade-off between customer demands and the increased costs of meeting those needs.

How can commercial and business jet original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), completion centers, suppliers, and airlines win the hearts of their consumers and do so profitably? With Passenger Experience, better manage customer expectations to accelerate sales and reduce the number of engineering changes from cabin and product configuration through to virtual cabin validation. And, increase training efficiency and minimize time out of the field of cabin crews and aircraft on the ground via three (3) forms of training and visualization content (web-based courseware, interactive game-based training, and fully immersive 3D visualization).
