Dassault Systèmes Launches ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express

Out-of-the-Box and Scalable PLM Engineering Solution, from Concept to Manufacturing, for Mid-Sized Companies


Kfar Saba, Israel, January 15, 2008 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the availability of ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express, an out-of-the-box, scalable and multi-CAD PLM engineering solution, specifically geared for mid-sized companies. ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express deploys best practices for working with Engineering Bill of Materials (E-BOMs) from concept to manufacturing phases of the product lifecycle, enabling mid-sized businesses to significantly accelerate new product launches.

“ENOVIA SmarTeam has provided a system for managing, communicating, and integrating technical and business change. We have processed about 300% more changes with reduced effort, and reduced processing time on Make-to-Order products by 70%,” said Jim Stewart, Engineering Systems Manager of Swagelok, a fluid system component manufacturer based in the United States.

Customers can benefit from accelerated product launches and reduce the duration and volume of engineering changes, resulting in higher productivity and lower costs. With its item/BOM-centric approach and tailorable workflow processes, supporting both mechanical and electronic CAD systems, ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express improves product definition by controlling the product changes and adopting best practices. The offering also enables improved accuracy, data consistency and configuration control resulting in effective and fast reuse of existing data.

ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express is a prepackaged, easy to implement solution, based on ENOVIA SmarTeam's Collaborative Engineering offering. The solution offers mid-sized companies a rapid user ramp-up and low total cost of ownership. Preconfigured yet tailorable, ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express provides customers out-of-the-box PLM functionality that can be extended to the Collaborative Engineering solution according to the customer’s growing PLM needs.

“With the addition of SmarTeam Engineering Express to our solution portfolio, we are providing a tremendous advantage for mid-market manufacturers who can achieve a substantially low total cost of ownership,” said, Alex Zeltcer, general manager, ENOVIA SmarTeam, Dassault Systèmes. “This is possible, in part, as our products work in harmony with Microsoft technologies, including .NET so that customers do not need to invest in additional and costly hardware and software.”

Together with the SmarTeam Design Express package, introduced in 2006 and adopted by hundreds of mid-sized companies, ENOVIA SmarTeam now offers, on the same platform, an end-to-end engineering solution –- from concept to manufacturing phases – for mid-sized companies, reinforcing Dassault Systèmes’ mission to bring the benefits of PLM to companies of any size in any industry worldwide.

Karmann Chooses Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA for Production Line Planning and Simulation

Accelerated Ramp-up Time, Identification of Best Practices

Auburn Hills, MI., USA and Fellbach, Germany, January 15, 2008 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that after a successful pilot, Wilhelm Karmann, an international supplier to the automotive industry, has selected DELMIA Process Engineer and DELMIA Body-in-White to virtually plan, simulate and test its production lines.

“Following comprehensive tests, we selected DELMIA solutions,” states Werner Hennig, Karmann head of engineering processes IT. “We expect this software to reduce costs, shorten ramp-up time, and improve process quality. Additionally, the integration of suppliers will be easier and modifications of production conditions can be implemented more quickly.” Product designers can use the software to develop the best manufacturing alternatives, helping to identify the best practice solutions. The simultaneous engineering capability between planning and manufacturing teams will keep planning errors to a minimum.

DELMIA Process Engineer provides a comprehensive treatment of the relationships between product, process and manufacturing resource data, including plant layout. It allows planners to play out various scenarios to determine, for example, the optimum model mix or number of employees required to accomplish a certain task. This helps to avoid planning mistakes and obtains a precise overview of the required investment costs, production space and manpower.

The scalable DELMIA Body-in-White solution allows for the creation, modification and validation of automotive body-in-white lines and stations prior to production, including the setup of tools, fixtures, stations, and lines, with the associated processes. The user defines the overall process; identifies the fastening points and fixtures; and validates the throughput and capacity to identify potential bottlenecks and modify the line as needed. All processes are verified in a 3D environment.

“We are glad to have such a well-respected company as Karmann join the group of Tier 1 automotive suppliers relying upon our automotive solutions,” says Jorg Scheibel, managing director of DELMIA GMBH and vice president of sales for EMEA North, DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes. “This further demonstrate the value provided to customers by the award-winning DELMIA Body-in-White solution, which was named one of top 20 technologies recognized at the SAE Congress 2007.”
