Accelerate engine programs to meet record demand

New technology, new competition, new hurdles

Aircraft engine manufacturers strive to meet record backlog to support their original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) customers’ backlog to deliver new planes (commercial and defense). In addition, intense pressure from airlines and OEMs to create more efficient engines that are better for the environment and the bottom line has engine companies exploring new materials and technology. Next generation propulsion, innovative technology and material sciences are a competitive advantage.

Advances in space propulsion technology aids significantly in driving down the cost of space flight. And, increased global expenditures, including the growing private and venture capital interest in the privatization of space contribute to an expanded market for space vehicles and the engines that propel them.

Manufacturers of rocket and aircraft engine must ramp up production rates and create greater manufacturing agility.  They also face the challenge of expanding the engine portfolio and meeting exacting OEM demands (delivery on-time and on-specification to meet end user operator or warfighter requirements) while integrating new engine technologies to increase fuel efficiency and improve operating costs. These new engine technologies must also comply with certification bodies’ quality and reliability standards.

Dassault Systèmes solutions can help propulsion companies accelerate engine development from concept to take off up to 50 percent. Leveraging the 3DEXPERIENCE platform engine companies can:

  • Cut 40% to 60% of design cycle time and cost.
  • Reduce up to 25% of manufacturing errors / 20% waste to improve first-time quality by up to a 15%.
  • Increase operations throughput by up to three times the average.
