Posted 26 July 2017 · Add Comment

Boeing and Dassault Systèmes have extended their partnership. Boeing will expand its deployment of Dassault Systèmes' products across its commercial aviation, space and defense programs to include the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

This decision follows a competitive process that included the rigorous analysis of technical and functional capabilities, cost and business benefits across the value chain.

“Dassault Systèmes is proud to collaborate with Boeing as it embarks on another century of innovation with a partner it trusts.  Boeing not only leads the way in its own industry, but influences the progress of all industries across modern society,” said Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “We are at the turning point of the industrial era, where we are shattering another industry paradigm.  The parallel exchange of data between virtual and real operations will transform the value-adding chain into a value creation chain.  The entire 'extended' enterprise can continuously measure and control business processes for maximum efficiency and potential top line growth.  This is ‘Business in the Age of Experience.’”

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform can reduce integration and support costs, improve productivity, foster new innovation, and aid in the introduction of best practice processes to deliver standard work across the value chain.  The 3DEXPERIENCE platform can not only simulate products and processes, but also find and eliminate potential risks and quality issues before production.  The platform’s single source of data across all applications will provide reliable and actionable real-time information and seamless communication throughout the entire enterprise and supply chain as well as across product generations.  This digital continuity will improve data and analytics capabilities.

“The decision to adopt Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a key milestone in our digital transformation. This digital enabler provides global design and manufacturing capabilities that will fuel our second century,” said Ted Colbert, Chief Information Officer and Senior Vice President of Information Technology & Data Analytics, Boeing. “The value of this extended strategic partnership is a mutual desire to transform how Boeing connects, protects, explores and inspires the world.”
