Co-Design to Target
19 June 2013
Dassault Systèmes, a specialist in 3D design software, 3D digital mock-up and product lifecycle management (PLM), has announced the launch of its latest aerospace and defence industry product, 'Co-Design to Target'.
In the aerospace and defence industries, many companies fail to reach their budget, schedule and specification targets – due to increasingly complex systems, overly aggressive plans and the premature incorporation of new technologies. In addition, the design phase of a program is plagued by disconnected workflows, point solutions differing across a program’s ecosystem, and the constant flow of unpredictable changes into a program’s design.
Dassault says Co-Design to Target addresses these issues, introducing a unique approach to ensure a program is delivered on time, on budget, and on objective. The company says its capabilities include:
- A real-time view of program status that connects the dots between all processes in a program’s execution;
- A real-time view of an aircraft design’s performance that fundamentally changes the way aircraft are engineered; and
- Integrated engineering value streams, from design and simulation to part fabrication planning and resource programming preparation activities.
'One of the consistent challenges we see in the aerospace and defence industries is the need to deliver programs as promised. Companies have a vested interest to ensure their programs are not delivered over budget or under specification or behind schedule,' said Monica Menghini, executive vice president for industry and marketing at Dassault Systèmes.
'While we have played a pivotal role over the past 30 years with our 3D design technologies in transforming how new aircraft are engineered, we must now focus on transforming how new programs are executed with our 3DExperience platform. Our goal with Co-Design to Target is to provide an industry solution experience that delivers new levels of engineering productivity and the execution control to deliver programs as promised.'
