Hispano-Suiza Selects Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for its Mechanical Power Transmission Systems

“Co-Design to Target” Industry Solution Experience Extends Program Collaboration and Operational Efficiency across Sites and with External Partners

LE BOURGET (Paris Air Show), France — June 18, 2015 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Hispano-Suiza, a globally-recognized specialist in mechanical power transmission systems for aircraft engines and part of Safran, a leading international high-technology group in aerospace, defense and security, has selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to improve the efficiency of its design and engineering programs.

Hispano-Suiza’s thousands of mechanical transmission systems have operated more than 850 million flight hours worldwide.  With facilities in France and Poland, and a joint venture with Rolls-Royce launched in 2015, Hispano-Suiza looks to increase the efficiency of its programs through better control of data that was managed by multiple tools.

With the Dassault Systèmes “Co-Design to Target” industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Hispano-Suiza now has an open, enterprise-wide, digital environment that improves collaboration and operational performance for the design and engineering of its mechanical power transmission systems.  “Co-Design to Target” replaces fragmented solutions with a single platform so that the company can rely on a unified, digital backbone for all data and processes that extends to multiple divisions across its subsidiaries and with its partners.  The platform provides real-time access to up-to-date product and part information.  This includes configurations, reference documents, 3D data, changes and REACH material compliancy, as well as the information’s traceability, to ensure quality of data and reduce the risk of error.

“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will enable us to manage processes and data with a high level of collaboration,” said Hélène Moreau-Leroy, CEO, Hispano-Suiza.  “Our teams will quickly be able to retrieve, use and reuse intellectual property at any moment during the product lifecycle.  Unexpected surprises due to changes in product specifications will be avoided thanks to real-time access to the latest information. With these capabilities, we can improve processes and guarantee all the links between data that depend on and benefit from multi-disciplinarian cooperation.”

“We are confident that Hispano-Suiza, whose systems integration is being handled by our partner Accenture, will quickly benefit from taking these first steps in digital continuity with an enhanced ability to successfully deliver quality programs,” said Philippe Forestier, Executive Vice President, Global Affairs and Communities, Dassault Systèmes.  “Companies of all sizes are recognizing the advantages of evolving away from file-based data management towards a single business experience platform. ‘Co-Design to Target’ delivers a secure, single source of the truth that facilitates the exchange of data within and between every domain of a company’s aviation design, engineering and manufacturing programs.”
