With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform at the heart of its operation, Vertical Aerospace has all the capabilities it needs to redefine the future of air travel.

The Challenge

UK aviation start-up Vertical Aerospace plans to be first to market with its innovative electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. As the company builds its business from scratch, it needs a robust platform to support its entire product development and certification process and bring together all disciplines in one place to innovate at speed.

The Solution

Vertical Aerospace opted for a cloud-based version of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to suit its immediate and growing business needs.

Vertical Aerospace is building its revolutionary electric aircraft and defining its processes on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the Cloud with the Reinvent the Sky industry solution experience. This gives the company access to enterprise-level design, engineering and simulation software in a single, secure, standards-based environment.

The Benefits

With all its operations running on the cloud, Vertical Aerospace has the agility it needs to accelerate product development. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform supports the company’s efforts to develop its product and processes in parallel and build a virtual twin of its aircraft that incorporates all disciplines and operations. This will help the company to navigate the complex certification process and maintain full traceability throughout the lifecycle of the aircraft.

With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Vertical Aerospace is able to carry out concurrent engineering and empower all users in the company to access the information they need to keep projects on track.

“We’ve been working collaboratively with DTE and Dassault Systèmes to build our product structure and future proof it. We have a really tight program so there’s lots we have to do right away such as getting the part numbering system in place. The guidance from both DTE and Dassault Systèmes has been amazing.” James McMillan Senior Design Engineer, Vertical Aerospace
