The Challenge

ITER's key business challenge is to orchestrate a pioneering international scientific research project via a small central team. The project's endproduct is a one-of-a-kind fusion plant that will become a global energy showcase. The whole world will be watching to see whether this high-risk venture succeeds. Read more.

Dassault Systèmes Response

ITER selected CATIA, ENOVIA VPLM, and DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes Product Lifecycle Management (DS PLM) solutions, to engineer the reactor and plant, structure its design methodology, and ensure long-term data interoperability across the organization.


* Design time of components cut from months to days * Fewer ITER Central team designers * Major IT performance improvement * Increased sense of local ownership
