Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG is a world-leading provider of power systems and has established a strong position in global markets—civil aerospace, defense aerospace, marine and energy. In the civil arena alone, their engines can be found on 30 types of commercial aircraft, with more than 13,000 engines in service for 650 airlines.

The Challenge

To deliver robust gas turbine engines with consistent performance, fuel-efficiency, and short delivery cycles, while ensuring quality and reliability and keeping design manufacturing and maintenance costs low.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Engineers at Rolls-Royce use SIMULIA’s Isight software to help identify the best turbo- machinery blade design solutions that meet all criteria. Rolls-Royce continuously chooses Isight for its drag-and-drop capability for creating simulation process flows, letting engineers link and automate.

Benefits

Using Isight allows Rolls-Royce to cut process time from a full day to minutes with reduced error. Engineers have access to powerful design tools, giving them noticeably less redesign work, which leads to better control over manufacturing cost.
