DELMIA V5 R16 Promotes Collaboration Between Design, Manufacturing, And Production

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Nov. 8, 2005— Dassault Systemes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY)(Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) today announced the latest release of DELMIA V5 PLM Manufacturing Solutions for the digital design and validation of factories and production processes as part of Release 16 of their Version 5 (V5R16) Product Lifecycle Management platform.

With the release of DS' V5R16, DELMIA will support the Microsoft Windows 64-bit operating system and certified hardware platforms, enabling users to access and manipulate very large datasets as they develop, plan and communicate manufacturing and production processes.

"The manufacturing communities can continue to grow by taking advantage of this new technology. It eliminates the memory limitations encountered when dealing with large data models, such as an entire factory, and enhances the power of digital process planning, detailing and 3D simulations," says Philippe Charles, CEO, DELMIA. "This will, without a doubt, increase the overall collaboration, performance and value for an enterprise by connecting people and accelerating product and production engineering."

DELMIA V5R16 Highlights:

Increase Performance for Collaborative Workspaces -- DELMIA V5R16 is released on the Microsoft 64-bit platform, giving users the ability to process larger data sets and manipulate complex models. The 64-bit platform also provides faster load times, simplified 3D views, and improved communications between design, manufacturing and production.

Empower Engineering-to-Manufacturing Collaboration -- DELMIA V5R16 provides the ability to apply the power of Change Management Actions to manufacturing process planning, thereby providing rigorous control over business processes and tightly integrating this control with product engineering through ENOVIA V5. This ensures a continuous data-share and understanding between design intent and the manufacturing processes.

Communicate Knowledge Downstream -- DELMIA V5R16 empowers manufacturing planners to directly re-use and reconcile captured design requirements data in their process plans and to translate this engineering knowledge in electronic work instructions for delivery to the shop floor.

Capture Enterprise Knowledge -- With DELMIA V5R16, the aerospace community has the ability to capture 'non-conformance' details on the shop floor using V5 DPM Shop and assist the enterprise compliance with FAA requirements by documenting and storing this information within the MES system. The shop floor can also leverage this 'captured knowledge' to enhance and update its electronic work instructions for improved production efficiency.

Reach the Extended Network -- DELMIA V5R16 allows users to generate lightweight 3DXML models of both product and resource geometry in the context of the manufacturing process plans. These lightweight models can then be used downstream with any Microsoft Office application for the purpose of generating documents with 3D interactive capabilities, thereby bringing these documents 'to life' for improved enterprise communication.


DELMIA is a premier brand for digital manufacturing solutions, focused on two unique software applications that can be used to streamline manufacturing processes. DELMIA Automation provides solutions to digitally design test and validate the control of a machine, workcell, or entire factory line and DELMIA PLM provides the process and resource capability to enable continuous creation and validation of manufacturing processes as related to the product throughout the entire product lifecycle. DELMIA serves industries where the optimization of manufacturing processes is critical, including automotive, aerospace, fabrication and assembly, electrical and electronics, consumer goods, plant, and shipbuilding sectors.
