With the theme of showcasing “Digitalisation to realise a thriving Aerospace, Defense and Space ecosystem,” Dassault Systèmes at the 13th edition of Aero India 2021 showcases technology solutions to Improve Supply Chain Collaboration, to Design for Flexible Manufacturing, to Manage Complex Systems and Accelerate Program Integration and to Deliver High Performance Operations. Experts from Dassault Systèmes are present at booth numbers A6.6 and A6.8, to discuss how to bridge the gap between the virtual and real world to accelerate concept to operations by 50 per cent through industry solution experiences based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Aerospace companies must integrate new technologies into ever-increasing complex aircraft that can meet passenger demands as well as operator cost and uptime targets. To drive down costs, companies must find efficiencies in how they conceptualise, design, manufacture, test, certify and support new aircraft. It requires a model-based and data-driven approach to drive significant process improvements to transform their ability to deliver on schedule, on cost, and on specification. Dassault Systèmes supports them in accelerating programme maturity from concept to manufacturing while driving 40-60 per cent of cost out. The “Winning Concept” industry solution experience increases success rates of new concepts and bid proposals by uniting the proposal authoring, concept alternatives definition and analysis trade process on a single business platform. The “Cleared To Operate” industry solution experience helps Aerospace & Defence programmes test and certify on time and improve confidence between aviation authorities and their suppliers.
As airlines make decisions on retiring models and reassess their fleet needs, aircraft production and aftermarket services will need to be fundamentally reassessed to account for long-term demand shifts. The “Co-Design to Target” industry solution experience improves programme execution to meet cost, schedule and performance targets, avoid potential contract penalties and reduces engineering complexity. The “Ready for Rate” industry solution experience increases the efficiency of existing manufacturing operations, accelerates the ramp-up of new production lines, and enables future factory innovations.
The new model requires a closer partnership to improve visibility, on-time delivery and first-time quality. The “Program Excellence” industry solution experience enables companies to optimise their product strategy and reach a high level of efficiency in programme execution. Companies can implement their digital transformation around governance, configuration, collaboration and analytics. The “Engineered to Fly” industry solution experience helps suppliers win more business and more efficiently deliver on time, on budget, on target. Best in class engineering, simulation and project tools delivered on a single platform can improve productivity up to 40 per cent while reducing total cost of ownership by at least 15 per cent.
It is critical for the aerospace industry’s resiliency and long term development to address costs. To deliver high performance operations at optimised costs requires manufacturing execution optimisation on the shop floor as well as services optimisation for MRO. With the virtual twin, Dassault Systèmes’ dedicated industry solution experiences make it possible to achieve excellence at reduced costs. The “Build To Operate” industry solution experience provides the Manufacturing Operations Management capabilities needed to implement lean practices to monitor, control and validate all aspects of manufacturing with digital precision on a global scale.
