Product Design and Development

Fosters the design of fabricated, molded, cast, forged, machined, and composite parts.

Balancing increasing complexity with rising performance and quality requirements is a challenge at the heart of the product development process. Digital prototyping allows product development teams to define a product within the context of its real life usage to analyze its behavior and gain early insight into key factors that determine its quality and performance.

Dassault Systèmes (DS)' Consumer Product Design and Development solution fosters the design of fabricated, molded, cast, forged, machined, and composite parts. Our powerful specification-driven modeling approach promotes efficient concurrent engineering between styling and mechanical shape designers, while our functional modeling capability fosters productivity and flexibility.  We empower development teams across various engineering disciplines with the best tools for accurate digital product definition so that potential design flaws can be detected as early in the development process as possible.  The native integration between Dassault Systèmes' design, simulation and manufacturing applications allows various engineering teams to optimize product design for quality and performance, while speeding product development process.

One of the key challenges of the product design-to-production process lies in making sure that the parts designed are suitable for fabrication.  Designers need to have access to instant manufacturing information to prevent design flaws and manufacturing rules violations that otherwise result in higher project cost and schedule overruns.  With our advanced knowledge management capabilities, manufacturing specifications are captured and embedded in intelligent templates and introduced early in the design process.  Manufacturing information is automatically taken into account in the design of sheetmetal parts or plastic parts, for instance, speeding design and avoiding design changes late in the process.  This enables designers to explore a wide variety of conceptual design proposals while simultaneously integrating downstream technical constraints.

Key Capabilities and Benefits:

  • Molded part engineering and plastic injection simulation
  • Sheetmetal part design
  • Machined part design
  • Composite part design
  • Electrical part design
  • Flattening
  • Engraving and labeling design
  • Packaging design (please also visit our Consumer Packaged Goods industry site)
  • Digital product and virtual reality immersive review
  • Design re-use and knowledgeware
  • Drafting, technical design and technical publication
  • Sample management

We quickly realized that PLM solutions from Dassault Systèmes could single-handedly solve all of the core problems we faced in our product innovation processes.
