Accelerate development and boost product reliability and performance
Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution, an age that has far-reaching consequences for Industrial Equipment companies. The Internet of Things, the emergence of new regulations and safety standards and the need to increase efficiency to reduce their customers’ operating costs: these are some of the challenges manufacturers face. Part of what is expected of them is equipment with greater power, flexibility and reliability in an immediate and sustainable manner. Machines will be smart and connected and able to act and react without human intervention. This means more complexity with embedded systems, software, and electronics that will all have to be taken into account in the design of 21st century machines. Yet companies are ill-equipped to deal with the complexities of mechatronics design. Their teams are dispersed, work in silos and use different and often incompatible software. Yet to succeed in the demand-oriented 4th Industrial Revolution, they require more integration and smoother interaction between the different disciplines, whether they work in 2D or 3D, that contribute to the design effort. It is possible with the right technologies.
Smart and Synchronized is a Dassault Systèmes Industry Solution Experience for industrial equipment companies that need to manage the complex interactions between the multiple engineering disciplines that contribute to mechatronics system design. Backed by the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform all stakeholders can seamlessly contribute to develop efficiencies, intelligence and performance into equipment of the 4th Industrial Revolution with full traceability from requirements to finished product. With Smart and Synchronized companies benefit from sophisticated simulation tools to validate concepts and test machine performance in the early stages of design, thus reducing late-stage design re-dos for faster development of smarter mechatronics products.
