Real-world Aerospace & Defense Suppliers’ Success Stories

How the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform Accelerates Suppliers’ Business Transformation

The process of digitalizing product development enables Aerospace & Defense suppliers to eliminate poor data management practices and ensure the security of sensitive data. Shifting to a digital product model on a product innovation platform significantly improves collaboration across the enterprise.

By leveraging one definition of engineering parts and bill of material (BOM), multiple design disciplines can publish data into a consolidated engineering BOM. Using one common change process provides visibility for all stakeholders, standardization of change management, and more. This results in fewer BOM errors, less rework, and more time for innovation.

The use of virtual builds in planning is a crucial component of any digitalization strategy. With virtual prototyping, suppliers can replace expensive physical mock-ups, resulting in substantial cost savings. Additionally, virtual builds eliminate the wait times associated with physical prototyping, thereby shortening the product cycle. Rapid engineering changes can be made in a virtual space, making the process much more flexible and efficient. Virtual models are also easily duplicated and modified, making them highly adaptable for multiple use cases.

Suppliers take process planning to the next level by equipping their manufacturing planners with the right visual process planning tools. Visual process planning supports supplier development objectives to increase productivity, reduce overall costs, improve product quality, and accelerate time-to-market. 

With the increasing pressure on Aerospace & Defense suppliers to provide better visibility to their OEM customers, it’s exciting to see that success is achievable if you reinvent the way you work.

Watch and learn how the following Dassault Systèmes’ customers have improved their program success using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Aerospace & Defense Supplier – Safran Transmission Systems

Safran Transmission Systems chose Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform including the Co-Design to Target industry solution experience to deliver digital continuity across all product-related. The company has recorded 30% productivity gains on configuration control tasks using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Aerospace & Defense Supplier – Messier-Bugatti-Dowty (now Safran Landing Systems)

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty adopted 3DS 3DEXPERIENCE platform for design, data management, simulation and analysis, manufacturing, and documentation.
