Dassault Systèmes PLM – An Innovation Enabler for the Design of next-Generation Aircraft fleet
Paris Air Show (Le Bourget), France, June 18th, 2009 Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solutions, announced that Dmytro Kiva, General Designer of Antonov ASTC (Ukraine), and Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes, signed a strategic partnership at Le Bourget Air Show to speed up the implementation of DS latest PLM solutions.
Since more than 60 years, Antonov ASTC is developing and commercializing aircrafts, known for their structural reliability and economic efficiency, easy maintenance and the ability to use unpaved airfields. Over 1.500 Antonov aircrafts have been exported to more than 70 countries. Beyond designing and building new aircrafts, Antonov ASTC is providing operational and engineering support as an extended service throughout the entire lifecycle of its aircrafts. Today, the company is seeking to drive its operational efficiency and the sustainability of its products to the next level.
“Dassault Systèmes PLM solutions have long-since proven to be the best answer to the Aerospace industry challenges”, stated Dmytro Kiva. “Our cooperation will be of mutual benefit, as we will continue to nurture each others’ know how”.
The project of employing Dassault Systèmes solutions at Antonov ASTC started in 2002 with CATIA V5 and continued in 2007 with the implementation of ENOVIA in order to establish effective business processes. The major advantages of CATIA/ENOVIA software in Relational Design, Collaborative Design and Configuration Management were crucial for Antonov when choosing Dassault Systemes solutions.
The main focus of the companies’ collaboration will now be the implementation of Dassault Systèmes latest PLM portfolio to optimize Antonov aircraft conception processes. This aims to provide Antonov’ experts full access to the high-end aeronautical technologies.
“Our collaboration with Antonov is undoubtedly beneficial for both parts”, comments Laurent Valroff, Director of Dassault Systemes in Russia and CIS. “It is a special honour for us to provide this major aeronautical complex with our technical know-how. We are sure that our solutions will enable the company to make a considerable breakthrough in the design and construction of aircrafts”.
