Dassault Systèmes Acquires Archividéo and FE-DESIGN


Dassault Systèmes, a provider of 3D design, 3D digital mockup, and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, is expanding its footprint in the energy, process, and utilities segments. This industry set is expected to grow rapidly to meet the needs to expand energy production, both to grow the global economy and to support demographic changes in view of the depletion of natural resources

Archividéo: 3D Urban Planning Dassault Systèmes has also announced the acquisition of Archividéo , a private company that creates and manages large-scale 3D digital models of urban environments and landscapes. The acquisition of Archividéo, based in Rennes, France, its technology, and its talents (about 20 employees), brings a new dimension to Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE strategy and platform, extending the 3DEXPERIENCE Read More

What Brings Customers Closer to Your Product Development?


Bringing all product stakeholders in a tighter loop within the entire product life cycle is one of the main strategies of the product lifecycle management (PLM) methodology. Following this idea, letting the customers (those who pay for and/or use the product) get involved as early as possible in the product design and development phases provides many benefits, including: more ideas for innovation,

cad detail  some 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) vendors now also provide lightweight 3-D applications (e.g., Dassault Systèmes 3DVIA Live ) for online collaboration purposes. In addition, there are free 3-D modeling applications available for the consumer market (e.g., 3DVIA Shape , also from Dassault Systèmes). Even better, 3-D can now go mobile. When I was at Dassault Systèmes DEVCON 2009 two weeks ago, the development team showed the 3-D capabilities (displaying 3-D models) of an iPhone. If you want to know Read More

Summarizing PTC’s Decades of Fervent In-House Innovation (and Acquisitions) - Part 2

How to Make People More Willing to Share Knowledge in Their PLM Environment


In Why Some People Don’t Like PLM, Graham McCall said that some product lifecycle management (PLM) users’ reluctance to share knowledge with others is the obstacle toward higher acceptance of PLM. I thought his point made perfect sense, and my instant reaction was to ask myself: How can this problem be resolved? Ideally, a PLM system is a platform for people to work together. This means that

As indicated in Teamcenter’s product roadmap, visual search, as a component in its HD-PLM offering, is expected to be released in the near future. There’s no detail about Siemens PLM’s visual search, but I hope it will enhance the user experience on both enterprise search and CAD search. In sum, besides being a change management issue as McCall pointed out, the difficulty of sharing information in the PLM environment is also a knowledge management (KM) Read More

Shifts in Payment Models for CAD Deployments


Given the recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo, it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks).

IFS Continues Its Reinvention through Pruning Part Three: Market Impact and User Recommendations


By selling CAD and payroll applications, IFS may not only control potential damage but also "kill two birds with one stone" by 1) leveraging Bentley's and Personec's commitment to a true partnership and product integration to boost both parties’ license sales, while streamlining its own operations; and 2) obtaining some equity, however little, as to improve its balance sheet.

The agreement with Bentley is expected to have a positive impact on IFS' earnings totaling approximately 6 million SAK (approximately $800,000) in 2004 and 2005. Further, the deals with Bentley and Personec, which are also in tune with the above inclination to leverage partners discussed in Part Two , would not be the first of a sort for IFS.

What Can Aras’ Selection as PLM Enhancement at MAN Diesel & Turbo Tell Us?


While multi-CAD (computer aided design) situations have been a matter of course at large manufacturing organizations, it appears that multi-PLM (product lifecycle management) software deployments will follow suit.
