Explore some of the benefits companies achieve by adopting a business and innovation platform
The platform accelerates the process of innovating and testing new ideas as it allows for fast back and forth between ideation, development and simulation in a single 3D environment. By connecting all disciplines, the platform acts as the single version of the truth required to transform ideas into innovative products and experiences. It streamlines collaboration and reduces the time between the concept phase and the development of prototype, thus shorten the time to market for your products, services, and experiences.
The platform digitally connects all participants to the innovation process with secure, real-time collaboration across all disciplines. By sharing a common infrastructure, it enables everyone to share ideas, plan and work using a common language and product definition. Individuals working remotely or teams not previously involved in the development cycle can now contribute to the innovation process. This holistic way of approaching work – and more specifically innovation – promotes cross-discipline collaboration and boosts transparency.
The platform provides better visibility into processes and projects with traceability of changes and decisions. By combining design, engineering, manufacturing and project management, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a single integrated view to manage projects and processes in real time. This single digital representation allows anyone to visualize the status of a project at any given time and quickly access all project information. By virtually simulating the build process, companies can show an immersive 3D experience to get feedback and make the required adjustments.
The platform provides the ability to create virtual twin experiences that add knowledge and know-how in one continuous cycle while eliminating the gap between experimentation and learning. Using virtual twins, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows for realistic test scenarios in a fraction of the time it would take in the physical world and delivers the best combinations given the desired outcome. Stakeholders continuously experiment, derive knowledge and optimize it by exploring all possibilities and scenarios.
In many industries, not delivering on time and to specifications triggers costly penalty clauses in contracts. By reusing previous projects’ knowledge that is centralized on the platform, organizations minimize risks associated with innovation. Projects in development are compared against past ones and potential issues are identified before they become costly problems at manufacturing time or during the post sales cycle.
A unified environment shared with all stakeholders encourage them to pool their expertise and share ideas more freely. Gathering and making available information on past projects such as design libraries, project templates and quality profiles promote the development of best practices. This leads to better products and services. It helps young designers, engineers and professional entering the workforce accelerate the acquisition of industry knowledge.
