Icona develops an advanced software solution, aesthetica™, which enables companies to gain benefit from visualizing the impact of manufacturing variation on the final perceived quality and fit/finish of manufactured products. Perceived quality is the impression of quality that a customer gets when they first encounter a new product and achieving a high level of perceived quality has become critical differentiator in today's competitive global market. Many of the world's leading companies now use aesthetica to successfully manage and improve the perceived quality of their products.

The products and services offered by Icona Solutions are designed for use in the automotive, commercial vehicles, agritech and consumer products industries and are marketed and supported through a network of qualified resellers and engineering service providers in North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

Icona Solutions is based in Manchester, United Kingdom, and grew out of a research program at the University of Leeds. Its growth from product and service sales, since the first commercial sales in 2006, has been supported by a consortium of investors led by IP Group plc.

Value proposition

Icona Solutions is a member of the Dassault Systèmes CATIA CAA V5 program, developing solutions that form an integral part of the broader product lifecycle management (PLM) software environment.

aesthetica is a unique solution for improving Perceived Quality giving manufacturing companies the ability to simulate and visualise the impact of production variation and deformation in the digital design process. It reduces the need for physical prototypes, removing and reducing cost by the early identification of Perceived Quality issues and by avoiding the need for pre and post production rectification.

aesthetica innovates the process from concept to production by applying variation and deformation directly to the CATIA product geometry and presenting this in a high end visualization environment with realistic lighting and materials exactly as customers will see the finished product.
