Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company

Russia Brand: CATIA
Industry: Aerospace & Defense

To enter the global civil aircraft market, Sukhoi Aircraft Holding Company (SCAC) developed a strategy to diversify its offering. The Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) is the result of this strategy and is the first regional passenger airliner in Russian aircraft history. An ambitious project like this requires innovative technologies, and it was decided at SCAC’s inception to use 3D design software to develop aircraft virtually.

The Challenge

Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) is striving to become the first Russian airplane manufacturer to fully design its aircraft using digital technology.

Dassault Systèmes Response

SCAC uses the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform from Dassault Systèmes to develop unique and complex engineering designs and associated documentation in a 3D environment, as well as to perform engineering analyses, manage specifications, tolerances, model ergonomics, and establish and expand a knowledge base.


The company created a complete digital mock-up of the Sukhoi Superjet 100, with benefits that include improved product quality and a reduction in development time and cost.
