Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Dassault Systemes for Digital Manufacturing

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan selected Dassault Systemes (NASDAQ: DASTY) and DELMIA as the recipient of the 2007 Company of the Year Award within the North American product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions space.

Recognized as the leader in the global PLM solutions market, the company is known for its pioneering technological innovations in digital manufacturing that help customers innovate throughout the product lifecycle.

"Innovations at Dassault Systemes have been inspired by consistent focus to provide value-added solutions and services to the end-users and have taken on new meaning with the introduction of DELMIA Automation solutions," notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Kishan M. Bhat. "DELMIA is the premier brand of Dassault Systemes for digital manufacturing solutions, focused on two unique software applications that streamline manufacturing processes, DELMIA PLM and DELMIA Automation."

The solutions assist industries where the optimization of manufacturing processes is critical, including automotive, aerospace, fabrication and assembly, electrical and electronics, consumer goods, plant, and shipbuilding sectors.

"DELMIA Automation has strengthened the core of the Dassault Systemes PLM offering," states Bhat. "With this innovative automation solution, the company has taken digital manufacturing to new heights by integrating the mechanical definition of the factory with the control logic built in the programmable logic controllers (PLC)."

Process and manufacturing industries are leveraging these solutions to increase their throughput and obtain advanced visibility into the process and manufacturing lifecycle on a virtual commissioning platform.

The DELMIA Automation virtual commissioning solution enables greater efficiency in validation and the control engineer can leverage the virtual model of the machine or cell to explore as many 'what if?' scenarios that are otherwise extremely difficult to validate.

"A critical success factor for the market adoption of virtual commissioning is the speed and ease-of-use in building the virtual environment," remarks Bhat. "DELMIA Automation's re-useable smart devices allow any company to build a library of smart devices that describe the behavior of a device, without the need to re-write that behavior. As a result, less time is spent in building the virtual environment while using pre-validated components at the same time."

The entire DELMIA suite of applications comprises leading digital manufacturing solutions that integrate with the PLM solutions from Dassault Systemes, like CATIA, ENOVIA, and SIMULIA.

Leading manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, consumer-packaged goods (CPG) and hi-tech industries have deployed the PLM offering from Dassault Systemes and have continuously raised the bar on operational excellence.

The company also provides efficient integration with enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to complete the business lifecycle management.

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that has demonstrated excellence within its industry based on numerous factors including business development, competitive strategy and market leadership. The Award recognizes outstanding management, consistent growth, and positive social and economic impact on local and national communities and customers.

Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
