Dassault Systèmes, the world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions is focusing on digital manufacturing in a big way.
The regional adaptation of the company’s global “Age of Experience” event series in Pune provided 100 C-level executives and business leaders from manufacturing sectors in automotive, transportation, aerospace, defense and industrial engineering verticals with a detailed perspective on steps that businesses can take to digitally transform their manufacturing operations.
India as a hub for quality manufacturing activities in product design, R&D and assembling is evolving and has the potential to reach $1 trillion by 2025.
Inaugurating the event, Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes said, “The first step that Indian manufacturing companies need to take to compete with their global counterparts in an experience economy is to disrupt their traditional manufacturing operations with more agile, flexible, scalable manufacturing processes. In this context, they need to address four areas of the manufacturing equation: Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management, Supply Chain Planning & Operations and Additive Manufacturing.”
Addressing the media, Guillaume Vendroux, CEO, DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes said, “The world of manufacturing has shifted its focus from mass production to mass customization and quick delivery to an on-demand generation of consumers. Complete synchronization and integration of operations, modularity and predictive analytics have enabled manufacturers to provide consumers with a personalized experience.”
The 3DEXPERIENCE Factory is a smart factory solution to design and simulate the behavior of the full production line combining the HTC Vive virtual reality system and Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The 3D Lean Experience provides a real shop floor experience developed for operators, team leaders and supervisors.
Talking about the technology showcase, Samson Khaou added “With ‘Manufacturing in the Age of Experience’ we will touch upon how technology is breaking down barriers between virtual and reality through the concepts of solar-powered airplanes, smart homes and offices, 3D simulated human hearts, and self-driven cars. It is inspiring new generations of makers, engineers, scientists, brand evangelists and CEOs to develop the disruptive experiences that are defining our era and creating industries of the future.”
