Leading Supplier of Aircraft Crew Seating Relies on PLM Solutions from IBM and Dassault Systèmes17/05/2006
IPECO manages large data volume with ENOVIA SmarTeam and CATIA V5
Paris, France, May 17, 2006 — IBM and Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), today announced that IPECO, a leading supplier of flight deck and specialist crew seating for commercial aircraft and a long-time CATIA customer, has recently added 15 more seats of their Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions CATIA V5 and ENOVIA SmarTeam, to efficiently manage its many current projects.
“ENOVIA SmarTeam was recommended as the best solution for data management by the Continuous Improvement Team at IPECO,” noted Dave Scott, Technical Director. “The deployment of CATIA and ENOVIA SmarTeam within the design department has already allowed us to fully support the major projects we have been awarded, and we are planning to widen the exposure of ENOVIA SmarTeam across the company in order to increase collaboration between our internal departments.”
“As the drive for closer collaboration between OEMs and their suppliers becomes ever more critical to the success of projects within the aerospace industry, IPECO has met this requirement with IBM and Dassault Systèmes’ solutions, ensuring continued prosperity for the company in this highly competitive industry,” noted Philippe Boulay, Dassault Systèmes UK Channel Director.
IPECO’s crew seating must ensure optimum comfort and performance for any occupant irrespective of size or weight, and incorporates adjustable vertical and horizontal lumbar support, specially contoured cushions and angled seat-backs. This means managing high volumes of anthropometric and ergonomic data to ensure that each seat is comfortable and easy to operate. With more than 20 other projects in hand, IPECO manages all this data with its CATIA-ENOVIA SmarTeam solution.
Two years ago, IPECO purchased 10 migration seats of CATIA V5, the DS industry-leading solution that enables users to simulate the entire range of industrial design processes, and ENOVIA SmarTeam, the collaborative data management solution which enables manufacturers to manage their documentation, share and exchange product information throughout the extended enterprise. After a successful implementation, the company has added more seats, as well as specific tools which will facilitate its work as a supplier on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner project. With CATIA and ENOVIA SmarTeam, IPECO is able to communicate and collaborate quickly and instantaneously with Boeing, and with its own suppliers.
IPECO is supported in its implementation of the software and training by DS Business Partner Intrynsis.
