Dassault Systèmes has announced the launch of a cloud-based marketplace – a trading platform for digital design, engineering and manufacturing transactions.
‘Today’s Industry Renaissance extends beyond digitalisation to the emergence of new players and new categories of solutions, processes and services that prioritise sustainable innovation over productivity,’ said Bernard Charlès, vice chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. ‘Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform that pioneered the category of business experience platform in 2012, the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace transforms the supply chain into a value chain: a single, virtual, social enterprise, pioneering a new way to do business, innovate, and create value in industry. Online platforms and marketplaces have already transformed retail, transportation and hospitality services. Get ready—the industrial world is next.’
As of today, the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace already features 50 digital manufacturers with more than 500 machines and 30 million components from 600 suppliers.
The marketplace will allow them to iterate on design and manufacturing specifications, ensure that a part or product can be manufactured, and reduce risk and errors. It will also manage all aspects of a transaction between buyer and seller such as payments, currencies and billing, and provide a record of each transaction for full traceability.
