Dassault Systèmes has acquired Diota, developer of assembly assistance and quality control software solutions for manufacturing and operations. The acquisition will expand Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform with actionable virtual twin experiences on the shop floor, enabling customers in the aerospace and defense, industrial equipment, and transportation and mobility industries to optimize the performance of complex industrial processes and boost their operational efficiency.
Founded in 2009 in France, Diota provides software solutions for digital-assisted operations and digital-based robotics inspection that help industrial companies enter a new era of digital transformation. Cutting-edge technologies such as interactive 3D, AR, computer vision, AI, and deep learning connect back office engineering and on-site operations in charge of production and maintenance of manufactured products for greater productivity, improved product quality and enhanced workforce guidance and safety. Its solutions are used by more than 100 companies in 16 countries including BAE Systems, Dassault Aviation, Iveco, Latécoère, Naval Group, ORANO, Safran, Stellantis and Thales Alenia Space.
Dassault Systèmes will integrate Diota’s solutions into its DELMIA applications, which are used to collaboratively and virtually model, optimize, and execute manufacturing, supply chains, logistics, and services with new levels of intelligence and decision-making. This combination will enhance the use of digital mock-ups and their associated digital processes for manufacturing operations by delivering interactive, operations-level solutions that connect a virtual twin with real-world data in the field. Customers will be able to perform very complex operations right-first-time, as well as use the virtual twin as a quality referential to adopt continuous improvement methods, improve traceability and capitalize on intellectual property.
