Traditional models of urbanism are challenged today by the growing and increasingly diversified population in cities. To better plan for the future, we need to rethink how we imagine, plan, design, analyze, simulate, build and manage cities.

An Integrated, Collaborative Urban Experience

Cities are facing unprecedented challenges due to rapid urbanization. City councils, urban planners, regulatory agencies, architects, engineers, contractors and suppliers need to carefully plan for smart, sustainable growth.
A holistic approach to designing and managing the urban environment is critical. The health of a city hinges on the sustainability of its buildings, resiliency of systems, effectiveness of infrastructure, and harmony between government, residents, industry, and the natural environment.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables stakeholders to model, simulate, visualize and experience all aspects of a city in a completely virtual environment, with complex and diverse data sets. 

In recent years, the building industry has been accelerating the process of industrialization, adapting highly efficient production systems employed by manufacturing industries.

Prefabrication techniques are improving efficiency of on-site activities, just-in-time delivery systems use storage spaces more efficiently and improve cash flow, and BIM platforms connect data across stakeholders for optimal outcomes.

To help improve AEC productivity, Dassault Systèmes has developed specialized solutions based on a rich history serving automotive, aircraft, and other manufacturing industries.
