DPS will participate in ENACC PLM Conference as a guest speaker in its quality of strong actor within the CATIA community. This one-day conference (October 17th, 2013 in Montreal, Canada) mainly targets professional and academic CATIA users interested in learning more about development related to their CAD environment.

DPS presentation will focus on how leveraging CATIA V5 for integrating and accelerating FEA pre and post-processing using NASTRAN or ABAQUS solvers.

DPS has developed through its agreement with Dassault Systèmes a suite of in-house tools fully integrated into the V5 environment to enhance the use of CATIA V5 and expand it to analysts and CAE engineers. During this conference, attendees will have the opportunity to have a global overview of the tool’s functionalities during the morning session. A technical hands-on workshop will be proposed in the afternoon.

We hope to meet you at the conference, ready to answer your questions and show you how you can increase the power of CATIA thanks to our solutions.

The COE 2012 Annual PLM Conference is THE event that the users of Dassault Systèmes' solutions won't miss for sure! From April 22, 2012 to April 25, 2012 at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, NV Las Vegas, our users will receive the caliber of user-driven technical education, hands-on training opportunities and access to most accomplished professionals working with Dassault Systèmes products across industries and job roles.  

Have a look at the detailed program of sessions and also the list of exhibitors. Since it is a user-centric event, you'll have the chance to hear from several of our customers: Cessna Aircraft, Hydro-Québec, Johnson Controls, Purdue University, Bell Helicopter, and many others...  Of course, Dassault Systèmes' executives and experts will be there too. So, don't forget to register now!

The Technifair is the great place to meet some of the PLM MarketPlace partners, discover their solutions and ask questions to their experts: AMD, CD-adapco, CENIT, DPS, Elysium, ICAM, IGE+XAO and Theorem Solutions. Some of our resellers will be there too: Adaptive Corporation, Idex Solutions, Mecanica Solutions, RAND North America, and Tata Technologies.

Hope you'll enjoy the COE 2012 Conference. And this time, what happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas: don't hesitate to share your feedback from the event!

DSCC2011 has now closed its doors and, from what I've heard and read, everyone really enjoyed the event. Two days of plenary sessions with executives from our customers and Dassault Systèmes (3DS), technical sessions including customers testimonies and a Technology Showcase where people had the possibility to meet 3DS experts and our partners. This was DSCC2011 and I hop you get the most of it and brought lots of ideas back at the office!

On the PLM MarketPlace side, it was a pleasure for me to see our American customers and partners and share ideas and opinions on what is going on in the industry. Our software and hardware partners came here with very exciting products. This was also a huge opportunity to present the benefits of the program not only to partners but also to our customers. PLM MarketPlace is also made for them and it was great to show them what our partners have to offer them.

I had the chance to meet Emmanuel from DPS. He gave me more details about his company's latest software called Mid Surface Mesher. You can find it on the PLM MarketPlace. Basically, Mid Surface Mesher is a tool aimed at providing CATIA V5 users specific capabilities for generating and meshing medial surfaces of thin structures. They're working on sone nice projects, you should hear more about it soon!

Also, it was a pleasure to see Shauwn and his team from CoastalLogic. This company is regularly present during 3DS events. They have just released convertLogic v5.8 (seamless, automated PDF conversion and metadata stamping of files from your ENOVIA database). This new version brings some new enhancements, including on demand streaming. Stay tuned to CoastalLogic, they've got some exciting new products on the way!

Last but not least, our fellows from AMD were present too. They were demonstrating all the power of their FirePro 3D graphics cards on a DELL workstation and laptop. From a single graphics card, the scenario goes from design using CATIA V5 – for design content creation to technical illustration (3DVIA Composer – technical publication content creation) to 3D XML and web-based assembly instructions (content consumer) used on the field or on the shop floor. The benefits are the great performance on multi-display, the reliability and great value-add of having 3 full HD displays to master the complete workflow. Displays can be arranged side by side to create a giant extended desktop, which can help support such advanced, multi-application workflows. The workflow uses a radio controlled radio controlled R/C car. See by yourself:

Another demo, this time using a Dell Precision M6600:

Impressive, isn't it? And I've got a good news for you if are attending the ECF in a couple of weeks: the AMD team will be there to show you it working live!

Well, that's almost all for DSCC2011 from a PLM MarketPlace perspective! This was our second participation to this event and again, this was great to be there meeting our American customers and partners. 

If you are in Europe, we really look forward to seeing you in two weeks in Paris at the European Customer Forum. We'll be present on the PLM MarketPlace booth located in the Technifair during these two days.

For those of you who want to have a refresh on the key messages of DSCC2011, a good way is to follow the hashtag #DSCC11 on Twitter as our attendees sent thousands of tweets during these two days! And if you want to see what the event looked like, we've uploaded some pictures on our Facebook page. Don't hesitate to share yours too!

I guess it's now time for me to see what's happening in the casinos before heading back to Paris! Wish me good luck ;-)

Activities associated with altitude such as mountain climbing, mountaineering and work in suspension require strong and secure equipments providing a high level of security and allowing people to do it under the best conditions. Climbing is a difficult activity that requires a lot of efforts. In order to optimize those efforts workers need to get the best equipment from the shoes to the carabiner.

PETZL's mission has been the same for 30 years now: to invent concrete solutions enabling people to go higher with less risk, day and night. PETZL had a new project consisting in reducing carabiners' weight by 25% while maintaining their mechanical properties and performance above the required standards. And, of course, controlling manufacturing costs as well.

DPS' solution
Considering those facts, French PLM company DPS used an approach of integration of analysis in the product design that is currently widespread in the automotive and aeronautics industries. According to Raphaël Lanez, manager of the project, this was the key to the project.
DPS staff also listened actively in order to meet PETZL's needs. The project proposals made by DPS provided critical insight and enabled them to anticipate their needs, to offer a new, non-intuitive geometry. They also resulted in the development of digital methods to optimize component weight.

One step further
In addition to reducing the weight of the carabiner by 25%, DPS enabled PETZL to save time by significantly lowering the number of CAD calculation iterations. PETZL even succeeded in obtaining a significant decrease in the number of prototypes and tests. These benefits led to a reduction in product development time, representing 3 to 4 working months, or 15% time savings gained for the project overall.

Following this very successful collaboration, PETZL wishes to apply these optimization and integration methods to the design of other products for the brand.

Read the full DPS / PETZL success story.
