This is Part 4 of our 6-part blog series based on the Frost & Sullivan white paper, “Inspiring Manufacturing Transformation in the Digital Era.”

Solving Real-World Challenges with Innovative Solutions:

Dassault Systèmes Smart Manufacturing and Factory of the Future

Dassault Systèmes is at the forefront of steering transformation across the manufacturing space. Its track record of helping organizations embrace smart manufacturing and digital transformation with its innovative customer experience value creation speaks volumes of its customer-centricity. Its vision for manufacturing enables companies to rapidly mature their operations while enabling new business models and new ways of producing and delivering. By empowering companies with a single, unified view of models and business platforms, companies can pursue cost-effective mass customization strategies, improve speed and agility with real-time learning, connect value streams end to end, and ultimately reimagine manufacturing.

The organization’s business platform cuts across the manufacturing enterprise from ideation through manufacturing and life cycle ownership. Companies are embracing this platform approach and other technology advances (such as 3D printing, Internet of Things, and robotics) with a mindset of innovation and competitive agility. These forces can drive value—meeting market demands and delivering unique, personalized experiences to everyone.

One of its flagship solutions is the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. This connects technologies and solutions in a unique way that nurtures ideas, creates experiences, and delivers results to enterprises. Sophisticated modeling and simulation; data acquisition, analysis, and reporting; and breakthroughs in imaging and manufacturing come together so that organizations can pursue what was once thought impossible. For manufacturing, the result is an operational management and development solution with a single, unified view of models, processes, operations, and planning. As shown in Exhibit 16, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform essentially provides a virtual view of global operations for data-driven decision-making. This helps realworld operations run smoothly with foresight. Prominent outcomes experienced by pioneers include improved manufacturing innovation, early process validation, improved production efficiency, reduced cycle time, and accelerated time to market.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform truly transforms a customer’s manufacturing enterprise. The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, as shown in Exhibit 16, focuses on four key aspects supporting smart manufacturing (modeling, performance, optimization and collaborative operational processes) to navigate the digital transformation journey and ensure that a digital enterprise realizes its vision for excellence.
