To position itself on the LED technology market, GOTEC chose Dassault Systèmes’ (3DS) 3DEXPERIENCE technology for design, collaboration and data management. The company is reducing its use of physical prototypes thanks to virtual simulation and testing thus improving downstream productivity. Adopting a PLM-approach that includes BOM and engineering change management as well as collaboration is paving the way for increased traceability, innovation and faster time to market.
GOTEC needed to establish itself as a leading design house for LED lighting products and improve management of product information throughout its development process.
Dassault Systèmes Response
The company adopted Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, including CATIA Version 6 for design and simulation and ENOVIA Version 6 for data management and collaborative innovation.
Through virtual simulation, GOTEC creates fewer physical prototypes before production and a PLM-approach to product development has improved overall data management, increased collaboration, and favored innovation.
