Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience
The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create

3d product design  innovation requires that a 3D product can be experienced as closely as possible to how it looks and behaves in real life, with an intuitive interface that mimics real life (this “lifelike” video is an example). According to Wilson, the 3DVIA strategy is straightforward: establish 3D as the universal language for communication between engineering, business, and consumers for a ubiquitous 3D virtual experience. Further illustrations of the Waltham office can be seen on the Dassault Systèmes Tumblr

Product Lifecycle Management Portfolio


The DS PLM solution suite is embodied in four key brands—CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA, and SIMULIA—which form one of the industry’s most comprehensive PLM software portfolios. Used separately or collectively, the vendor’s proven applications define, simulate, and optimize all products, processes, and resources in an all-3D environment powered by an open development platform. With DS PLM V5 solutions, all business processes are linked together—including change management, activity and time management, asset management, and more. By enabling employees to collaborate in real time while accessing and sharing the same up-to-date information, companies can increase communication and speed modification, as well as approval processes. As a result, all organizational groups and processes–from design through marketing to maintenance–can share, reuse, and enhance product information in the pursuit of an optimum business strategy. For Virtual Product Design: CATIA CATIA enables users to simulate the entire range of the industrial design process, from concept to product design, analysis, and assembly. The CATIA product line covers all types of design and engineering needs and seamlessly integrates with the vendor’s other brands. For Virtual Production: DELMIA DELMIA enables manufacturers to digitally plan, create, monitor, and control production and maintenance processes. DELMIA applications provide complete coverage of manufacturing processes. For a Global Collaborative Environment: ENOVIA ENOVIA addresses user requirements across the full spectrum of product and business processes, from small-scale teams to extended enterprises with many thousands of users. The ENOVIA portfolio consists of three product lines: • ENOVIA VPLM—management of highly complex product, resource, and manufacturing processes in medium and large extended enterprises • ENOVIA MatrixOne—collaborative product development business processes for enterprises across a wide range of industries, including synchronicity for semiconductor design data management • ENOVIA SmarTeam—collaborative product data management for small to medium businesses, engineering departments of larger organizations, and across supply chains For Virtual Testing: SIMULIA By building on established technology, respected quality, and superior customer service, SIMULIA makes realistic simulation an integral business practice that enables engineers and scientists to improve product performance, reduce the number of physical prototypes, and drive innovation.

Can Your Product Development Move Closer to Consumers Now?


Half a year ago, I wrote about the need to include customer input in the design process in What Brings Customers Closer to Your Product Development? Recently, two pieces of Web content caught my attention and made me revisit this topic. The first one, The Path to Successful New Products, from the recent issue of McKinsey Quarterly, outlined three principles of making product development more

When a prominent voice from the crowd is heard, retailers may adjust their buying, pricing, or promotion decisions promptly. But for manufacturers, product changes may not be as flexible due to limitations on the availability of technology, manufacturing facilities, sourcing capabilities, and such. One thing I can think of in order to Read More

Green Server Design: Beyond Operational Energy to Sustainability


“Green” server and datacenter design requires a focus on environmental sustainability. Prior studies have focused on operational energy consumption as a proxy for sustainability, but this metric only captures part of the environmental impact. Understanding the total impact requires examining the entire lifecycle of the system, beyond operational energy, to also include material use and manufacturing. See how one methodology can do that.

Digitize Your Product Strategy


Unfortunately, the portfolio management processes that experts have advocated for years—and that many organizations have implemented—often take the form of semi-annual or even annual meetings. However, this often raises balance or alignment issues only after millions of dollars have been spent. What’s needed is real-time information that can be used to conduct continuous, automated assessment of portfolio status.
