What is the name of your product?
What problem does your product solve?
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform is a business experience platform that provides digital applications and industry solutions in one central location. As an integrated data hub, the networked, interactive environment promotes collaboration within your company and makes knowledge and expertise available to all employees and the entire ecosystem. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps companies transform their supply chain into a value network. Dassault Systèmes offers the 3DEXPERIENCE platform as an on-premise, private or public cloud solution.
What is new/innovative about it?
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform enables project participants worldwide to connect and work together across functions with the support of the constantly up-to-date database - from conception through to engineering and production to marketing and after sales. Since the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is scalable and open to third-party providers, it combines information from external sources into a global value network.
What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?
Having instant access to the most up-to-date information instead of working with outdated data and files is of enormous benefit to users. Task specific applications, e.g. those for design and simulation or dashboards that clearly display project- related information, enable role based working and the scalability of the platform. With everyone working with the most current information, processes become more efficient and transparent, and decisions can be made more quickly.
Do you classify your product as a smart component? If so, why would you call your product “intelligent/smart”?
Industry 4.0 has its focus on the Shop Floor. Dassault Systèmes goes one step further and regards the interconnection of design, engineering, manufacturing and the supply chain as critical to success. This is not about digitizing the past, but analyzing existing processes and building a long-term digitization strategy and new business models for our customers. Digital transformation creates a virtual world with which the real world can be enhanced. Only then are companies in a position to visualize processes and scenarios in order to evaluate and optimize them before they even occur. This digital continuity breaks up silos in companies. Manufacturing and IoT solutions are no longer viewed individually, but are integrated into the overall context of the digitization strategy.
Are there any other important points that you can think of?
Dassault Systèmes is a strong partner when it comes to selecting and scaling the technology required for this and, through its "Value Engagement" approach, places the customer and their specific needs at the forefront. The focus is always on future markets and innovation. It is not solely about Industry 4.0 but about enabling new business models and being a catalyst for the industry renaissance.
