Dassault SystËmes launches co-design to target, a new industry solution experience

Dassault SystËmes has announced the launch of its latest aerospace & defense industry solution experience, Co-Design to Target.

In todayís aerospace & defense industry, many companies fail to reach their budget, schedule and specification targets due to increasingly complex systems, overly aggressive plans and the premature incorporation of new technologies. In addition, the design phase of a program is plagued by disconnected workflows, point solutions differing across a programís ecosystem, and the constant flow of unpredictable changes into a programís design.

Co-Design to Targetî addresses these issues, introducing a unique approach to ensure a program is delivered on time, on budget, and on objective. To achieve this, ìCo-Design to Targetî includes several game changing capabilities:

  • A real-time view of program status that connects the dots between all processes in a programís execution. ìCo-Design to Targetísî program governance capability not only coordinates program execution but inherently tracks progress against all key criteria including cost, schedule, workload, performance, risk and opportunity;
  • A real-time view of an aircraft designís performance that fundamentally changes the way aircraft are engineered. ìCo-Design to Targetî provides designers and architects the ability to design not only in the context of traditional digital mock-up (DMU), but also in the context of a new Functional Mock-Up (FMU) that incorporates a designís behavior. It delivers a more complete and true-to-life program definition to orchestrate requirements, systems and structures, such that all engineers work in harmony;
  • Integrated engineering value streams, from design and simulation to part fabrication planning and resource programming preparation activities. ìCo-Design to Targetísî mission is to design components and sub-systems to reach their specifications quicker, and prevent late issues that may have dramatic impact on program cost and schedule.

One of the consistent challenges we see in the aerospace & defense industry is the need to deliver programs as promised. Companies have a vested interest to ensure their programs are not delivered over budget or under specification or behind schedule,î said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, Industry & Marketing, Dassault SystËmes. ìWhile we have played a pivotal role over the past 30 years with our 3D design technologies in transforming how new aircraft are engineered, we must now focus on transforming how new programs are executed with our 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Our goal with ëCo-Design to Targetí is to provide an industry solution experience that delivers new levels of engineering productivity and the execution control to deliver programs as promised.

The successful development of the 525 Relentless aircraft is a reflection of Bell Helicopterís close partnership with Dassault SystËmes, said Bennie Peek, CIO, Bell Helicopter. ìThe use of Dassault SystËmes technology has been critical to our ability to execute the 525 Program on target. Our partnership with Dassault SystËmes will certainly continue as we expand deployment of Dassault SystËmes solutions to new programs.
