With the Co-Design to Target Industry Solution Experience, aerospace and defense companies – from large manufacturers to smaller suppliers – can improve program execution to meet cost, schedule and performance targets. Performing to schedule ensures companies can avoid millions of dollars in potential contract penalties by meeting product delivery dates. Reducing complexity in product development by integrating engineering and functions or value streams allows companies to reap the benefit of significantly lower costs - non-recurring (e.g., reduced design time, avoiding issues late in the design cycle) and recurring (e.g., minimizing parts and optimizing manufacturing).

Having access to real time status of key performance indicators means program management and extended teams always know performance to plan. When programs stay on track companies can spend more time on innovation and minimizing risks all while lowering costs up front.

Discover the values of Co-Design to Target solution:

  • Proven, integrated program management keeps programs on-specification, on-budget and on-schedule
  • Accelerate product architecture optimization in preliminary design with functional mock up
  • Greener, Lighter, Stronger, Cheaper airframe with optimized value streams
  • Reliable, optimized system network installation
  • Live, multi-disciplinary simulations for execution to performance targets

The successful development of the 525 Relentless aircraft is a reflection of Bell Helicopter’s close partnership with Dassault Systèmes. The use of Dassault Systèmes technology has been critical to our ability to execute the 525 Program on target. Our partnership with Dassault Systèmes will certainly continue as we expand deployment of Dassault Systèmes solutions to new programs.
