DELMIA PLM Express is perfect for 5 to 50-plus person companies or any organization that has a need for an entry level PLM value channel offering for manufacturing. It delivers all the functionality and benefits of DELMIA in a way that allows customers to select a role-based solution that best matches their business needs.
"PLM is an excellent solution to help manufacturers become more competitive." said Philippe Charles, CEO of DELMIA "Companies that invest in digital manufacturing for PLM can expect faster time to market, fewer quality problems and lower start-up costs. Many smaller suppliers realize this value, but do not have the need to deploy a full PLM strategy at their level. DELMIA PLM Express enables these companies with the right set of PLM technologies to better focus on their targeted pain areas, to energize the supply chain and contribute to higher business value."
DELMIA PLM Express is offered in five role-based domains for manufacturing with dedicated, easy-to-deploy solutions within each discipline:
Resource Planning: Provides a complete solution for the resource planner with capabilities to model in 3D and validate the tooling and complete manufacturing workcells in the virtual world. This allows companies to significantly cut costs by eliminating production stoppage for set-up validation on the shop floor and by eliminating rework costs.
Robotics: Delivers comprehensive robotic simulation and offline programming capabilities that include dedicated functionality for arc and spot welding applications. By validating all robotic movements and programming in the virtual world, companies save time and money through elimination of production stoppage on plant floor equipment. This solution also enables faster development of new processes, as existing data can be stored for re-use.
Ergonomics: Delivers the capability to build kinematic human models and teach various human tasks, simulate processes and to optimize the human work space. In addition, users can perform risk factor analysis to maximize human comfort, safety, and performance through a wide range of advanced tools that comprehensively evaluate important elements of a human's interactions with a workcell. This solution allows companies to benefit from improved worker efficiency and lower health-related costs.
Process Planning: Designed for the planner or design engineer, it delivers assembly process planning, validation and simulation tools, plus assembly animation and dynamic authoring capabilities for assembly shop floor work instructions. Planning earlier in the design stages with the ability to capture and reuse data for shop floor implementation saves companies valuable ramp-up time and avoids costly delays in production.
Controls: Offers Smart Device Builder capabilities for the engineer to create the mechanical, kinematical and logical behavior of devices that can then be used to validate a PLC program in a virtual environment. In addition, Virtual Commissioning solutions allow control engineers to debug PLC code weeks before the integration of the physical equipment occurs on the shop floor, significantly reducing the ramp-up time of manufacturing systems and costs for maintenance operations. By catching PLC programming errors through simulation, control engineers also reduce the risk of damage to physical factory equipment.
