Dassault Systèmes and Sogeti High Tech Author Digital Manufacturing Book

Paris, France, November 17th, 2009 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and Sogeti High Tech, leader in Engineering and Technology Consulting Services and specialist in simulation and custom built PLM solutions, 100% subsidiary of Capgemini Group, today announced the release of a book on increasing profits through digital manufacturing and simulation. The book is a joint collaboration between Dassault Systemes and Sogeti High Tech. Both have combined efforts to explain the digital manufacturing and simulation revolution. In five chapters, this book explains how a seamlessly integrated fabric of information technology, digital manufacturing, simulation, robotics and physical production is no longer just an idea, but a reality for real profit.

For manufacturers, global competition, which has become increasingly fierce due to the economic crisis and issues tied to green business, provides an opportunity if not a necessity to rethink the way that products are developed and manufactured. This means that innovation is imperative; not only at a technological level, but in every aspect of the product development cycle. The major barrier to improving productivity is related to efficient planning and controls. Companies should focus more on effective means to reduce manufacturing costs and to improve their activity planning.

“This book covers exciting possibilities and the accompanying challenges offered by modern digital manufacturing and simulation to efficiently and effectively conduct profitable business in ways that, even a few years ago, could only have been dreamt of. In the near future, lifelike experience and extended digital manufacturing will be at the very heart of any state-of-the-art manufacturing company,” said Philippe Charlès, CEO DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes.

Modern digital manufacturing and simulation are the main enablers for obtaining such benefits. Digital manufacturing is the capability to define and simulate exactly how a product will be built in a global collaborative environment.

Simulation is key to many business operations, and its application is still developing at a rapid pace, supported by modern mathematics, information technology and computer graphics to create a 100% lifelike experience. Evolving from 2-D representation via 3-D and so-called “digital mock-up” we now enter the stage of digital manufacturing. It involves an integrated suite of tools to define and simulate all manufacturing operations and resources in the context of a product and a production plant. Modern digital simulation allows engineers to validate and optimize manufacturing processes.

“Present-day economic reality forces organizations to take a hard look at their strategies and practices of manufacturing. Modern digital manufacturing and simulation offer a potential order of magnitude increase in both efficiency and innovation. However, to deliver on this promise barriers must be overcome. This book addresses challenges and benefits, and lays out the vision of a state-of-the-art manufacturing environment,” comments Dominique Lafond, CEO, Sogeti High Tech.

The following people have also participated in this book: Frédéric Bertaud, formerly responsible for the Digital Factory project at Airbus; Michel Vrinat, independent consultant with a broad range of experience in nearly 30 years in design and engineering and product data management; Philippe Hamon, R&D Director LEONI Wiring Systems; Fulvio Rusina, Advanced Engineering Director at Comau; Fernando Mas, responsible for CAD/CAM and Digital Factory at AIRBUS military’.
