SFE snapped up by Dassault

Dassault Systèmes has acquired SFE, a provider of body conceptual engineering and performance evaluation and optimisation.

The addition of SFE’s technology to the 3DExperience platform enhances Dassault Systèmes’ transportation and mobility industry solution experiences, such as Target Zero Defect. This acquisition expands its Catia and Simulia applications, bringing to the market an innovative technology for seamless transitions, from early conceptual engineering and performance optimisation to detailed body design.  

'The combined SFE and Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience platform capabilities will lead to complete coverage of the entire value chain for the transportation & mobility industry.  From quick modelling to post-processing analysis, to product performance simulation and shape optimisation, the full design process is integrated. I see numerous places where this capability can bring value to other industries, not just transportation and mobility,' said Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault.  

'It reinforces Dassault Systèmes’ already strong position in the body-in-white domain, as well as the automotive market, in general. It will bring immediate benefits to SFE’s long list of customers, including General Motors, Porsche, Fiat, Chrysler, Daimler, FORD, BMW, and Volkswagen and others.'
