France Industry: Aerospace & Defense

Airbus has deployed Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to drive a global collaborative solution from 3D design to manufacturing engineering, integrating new improvements over previous programs.

The Challenge

For the development of its new wide body aircraft, the A350 XWB, Airbus needed a way to ensure quality and consistency across all internal and external stakeholders worldwide to meet aggressive production ramp-up targets and customer commitments.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Airbus uses Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE applications for design, simulation and manufacturing on a single platform, where employees and suppliers collaborate in real-time on a unique digital mock-up.


Collaborating on the most accurate and up-to-date product information across the value chain has enabled Airbus to significantly reduce engineering changes and in turn deliver an exceptional level of first flight maturity — keeping the A350 XWB program on target.
