CATIA Used to Design Majority of Vehicles Introduced at 2008 North American International Auto Show

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 14, 2008— Dassault Systemes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY) (Paris:DSY), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), today announced that CATIA, the company's design authoring solution, was used in the development of nearly 75 percent of the 27 introductory and concept vehicles* launched at the 2008 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) taking place in Detroit, January 19 - 27.

In just ten years, the number of new vehicle models has increased by 33 percent. CATIA's new design technologies have grown at a similar pace, allowing designers to focus on innovation, and encouraging creative and exciting designs. This ability to innovate and iterate quickly is critical in making gains in the overall product development process, helping to drive down cost, and improving quality.

Today, all of the world's major automakers use Dassault Systemes' PLM solutions, comprised of CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA and SIMULIA. These solutions enable manufacturers to develop and optimize vehicle design and manufacturing processes in the virtual world to deliver higher quality products in a shorter time, at a reduced cost.

Dassault Systemes' Vice President for Design Experience Anne Asensio, said, "Our mission is to provide the solutions that enable innovation from design initiation through the entire lifecycle of the product. The fact that so many of the incredible vehicles being introduced at the Auto Show were designed in CATIA validates the integrity of that mission."

The latest release of CATIA empowers powertrain and chassis designers with the debut of breakthrough auto-draft capabilities, as well as introducing end-to-end industry process coverage for composite design to manufacturing, electrical harness creation and documentation and printed circuit-board design. It also consolidates functional modeling support for the design of complex machined parts, extending this unique approach to more manufacturing processes.
