Greater than the Sum of Its Parts
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a unified environment to imagine, create and deliver the next generation of products, services and experiences. It brings together multi-disciplinary teams and enables the continuity essential to develop complex and connected products faster. It acts as the single version of the truth required to transform ideas into innovative products and experiences.
A unified environment requires:
A unified environment provides continuity by connecting multiple disciplines and allowing teams to develop complex, connected products faster. By creating products and experiences in 3D, teams test and validate designs and simulate manufacturing virtually. Using simulation processes, assembly setup is optimized and potential manufacturing issues are identified and rectified without a physical prototype. This keeps development costs down and accelerates time to market.
A unified environment is particularly helpful for complex projects as people securely work in parallel on different parts or sub-systems at the same time. At CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Shipyard, the electrical and fluidic systems of the ship are designed in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in parallel, enabling professionals in each discipline to work with structural engineers. This integrated collaborative approach helps avoid late-stage errors that can jeopardize schedules and budgets.
A unified environment provides better visibility into each process or project with traceability of changes and decisions. At IMC Toys, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps stakeholders have a visualization of the status of a project at any given time as well as quick access to all project information. Working in a unified environment also extends to visibility into customer needs and feedback. By virtually simulating the build process, companies can show their customer an immersive 3D virtual experience to get comments and changes early in the design phase.
