In the ever-evolving business landscape, digital transformation has become a non-negotiable imperative for all industry leaders. The cloud stands out as the pivotal enabler of these transformational endeavors. An astounding 90% of best-in-class organizations that have successfully embraced digital transformation are already leveraging cloud services and platforms, attesting to its significance [1]. According to Gartner, Inc.’s projections for 2023, global spending on public cloud services is set to grow by an impressive 20.7%, significantly outpacing that of the overall IT market growth [1].

DELMIA Machining, available on the cloud (and on-premise), combines the power of digital manufacturing, virtual twins, and advanced CNC machining to revolutionize the way manufacturing processes are planned, executed, and optimized. By leveraging the cloud infrastructure, DELMIA Machining enables seamless collaboration among teams, facilitates real-time data sharing, and enhances overall operational efficiency.

The Benefits of DELMIA Machining on cloud

1. Enhanced collaboration and communication

DELMIA Machining on the cloud breaks down organizational barriers and allows teams to collaborate effectively. With real-time access to shared data and virtual workspaces, product design changes can be translated into updated machining toolpaths within minutes. Design team, cutting tool technologists, NC programmers and shopfloor staff can work together seamlessly, regardless of their physical location. This level of collaboration fosters innovation, accelerates decision-making processes, and improves overall productivity.

The advantages become increasingly obvious if you have team members working at different spaces on site, or even working acrossing different sites.

2. Improved efficiency and productivity

By leveraging the power of virtual twins and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), DELMIA Machining enables companies to optimize their manufacturing processes for maximum efficiency. With reduced time wasted on silos and extended waiting time between various stakeholders, manufacturers are able to enjoy accelerated production, reduce machining time, and increase machining tool lifespan. These improvements result in faster time-to-market, reduced costs, and improved customer satisfaction.

3. Real-time data insights and analytics

DELMIA Machining on the cloud provides manufacturing executives and CNC machining programmers with valuable insights through real-time data analytics. By monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) and analyzing machining data, companies can identify bottlenecks, optimize workflows, and make data-driven decisions. This data-driven approach enables continuous improvement and helps companies stay ahead in today’s competitive manufacturing landscape.

Another advantage is that the team has a greater visibility of various building blocks of the manufacturing value chain. Fom design to specifically within machining process, which involves the machines, tools, accessories and programming. There is the added benefit that all team members work with a unique single source of truth, which is crucial in getting it right the first time.

4. Flexibility and scalability

With DELMIA Machining on the cloud, companies benefit from the flexibility and scalability of cloud computing. They can easily scale their operations based on demand, access the latest software updates and features without the need for complex installations, and reduce the burden of managing on-premise infrastructure. This scalability empowers companies to adapt to changing market conditions and drive innovation without significant upfront investments.

5. Faster innovation speed – from concept to production

With increasingly demanding market trends shifts and customer needs, manufacturers more than ever are expected to respond to new product requirements promptly, often with far less time than previously. DELMIA Machining on cloud takes the doubt in feasibility out of the equation and reassures that manufacturers are able to consistently bring new products to market at an unprecedented pace. Be it putting out new EV models, updating models of industrial equipment or pulling out intricately designed aerodynamic parts made of unique materials. You will be in the control seat of great innovation power to exceed customer expectations.
