French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation has extended the use of the Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform for all programmes.

The company has advanced the use of the next-generation enterprise platform to design, develop, produce and manage its value chain.

Dassault Aviation will depend on six Dassault Systèmes industry solution experiences, namely ‘Winning Concept’, Program Excellence’, ‘Co-Design to Target’, ‘Ready for Rate’, ‘Build to operate’ and ‘Keep Them Operating’.

Dassault Aviation chief digital officer Jean Sass said: “As we move forward with our digital transformation, we are using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop a digital, multi-program approach with easy access to data, especially for program management, procurement and quality processes.

“All of our industrial partners will work in collaboration with their customers on one digital platform. Ultimately, this will enable us to provide our customers with new, innovative flying experiences.”

The platform integrates 3D design, analysis, simulation and intelligence applications in a single digital environment. This enables all Dassault Aviation departments to access data from preliminary concept to maintenance.

The latest deployment marks the next step in Dassault Aviation’s digital transformation plan through a 3DEXPERIENCE platform approach.

Last May, the company entered a multi-year agreement with Dassault Systèmes to adopt the platform. The agreement covered the replacement of Dassault Aviation’s civil and military aircraft programmes with the platform for all Product Lifecycle Management solutions.

Dassault Systèmes Aerospace and Defense Industry vice-president David Ziegler said: “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform represents a holistic approach to innovation.

“It equips Dassault Aviation with integrated technologies and capabilities to connect all the dots from concept to operations, bring real-world data into the virtual world for analysis and action, build powerful, dynamic value networks of suppliers, and coordinate knowledge, know-how and processes to build their future aircraft.”
