2013 is a special year for our partner ESI Group since they are celebrating their 40th anniversary. A true success story started by 4 young graduates from Berkeley. Today, ESI Group employs more than 1000 people worldwide, serves almost all industries and their various companies. 

ESI’s solutions fit into a single collaborative and open environment for End-to-End Virtual Prototyping. These solutions are delivered using the latest technologies, including immersive Virtual Reality, to bring products to life in 3D; helping customers make the right decisions throughout product development.

Some of these solutions are seamlessly integrated with Dassault Systèmes' CATIA V5: PAM-DIEMAKER (sheet-metal forming), PAM-QUICKFORM (laminated composite modeling), PAM-RTM (modeling) and PAM-TFA (sheet-metal forming).

Take a few minutes to dive in this company's history and share employees' memories!

And as we say in France: Joyeux anniversaire ESI!

In more or less three weeks from now will take place the 50th edition of the Paris Air Show (17-23 June 2013, Le Bourget - France). Our solutions and those from Dassault Systèmes partners are massively used within the aerospace and defense industry: aircraft manufacturers, MRO, cabin design, etc...

There's no doubt we can't miss this major event and Dassault Systèmes will be present to demonstrate the value of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. But we won't be alone since some of our partners will be part of the journey too!

We really encourage you to pay them a visit between two aircraft demos!

- ESI Group (virtual prototyping): Hall 4 BC 126
- Noomeo (3D handheld scanners): Hall 4 G 136
- Optis (light analysis): Hall 4 AB 76
- Tata Technologies Mexico (3DS Business Partner): Hall 3 B 80

Also, have a look at the list of events during the professional days, there are many topics of interest for our industry (use of composites, electrical harness design,...).

We hope you have your tickets and will enjoy the show!

We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Simulayt Limited, one of the leader companies in the domain of composite and advanced draping simulation. Simulayt Ltd is well known by the PLM MarketPlace community since the company joined the program three years ago now.

Simulayt's solutions are ones of the best sellers of the PLM MarketPlace. Advanced Fiber Modeler, Composites Link and Composites Modeler for Abaqus are widely used in the aerospace industry but also in the consumer goods or energy industries where the challenge is to minimize materials' weight while increasing their performance.

"Simulayt’s strong technical expertise is widely recognized and its manufacturability simulation technology is systematically winning in all benchmarks." says Dominique Florack, Senior EVP, Products, R&D, Dassault Systèmes.  

This acquisition is a win-win opportunity for both Dassault Systèmes and Simulayt. CATIA V5 & V6 users will now have the possibility to virtually design, experience, simulate and manufacture composite products in a single environment.
In the end, the aim is to offer our customers the possibility to take full advantage of the Simulayt integration into Dassault Systèmes simulation solutions.

"As the only credible PLM vendor with a thorough understanding of the composites market and the most complete composites end-to-end solution, Dassault Systèmes was clearly a natural choice for us,” according to John Klintworth, CEO, Simulayt Limited.

We encourage you to pay a visit to our new colleagues from Simulayt, on the PLM MarketPlace and on their website. Discover what they do, how they solve major problems at our customers' and the perspectives offered by their solutions.

Don't hesitate to use the contact form should you need more information on Simulayt software.

Dear technology enthusiasts,
This Monday and Tuesday (September 28th-29th) is being held in Chicago the 2nd Composites World Expo.
Dassault Systemes is of course well represented, with a booth and several speaking slots. 
One of them, on Tuesday September 29th, is shared with the DS partner Intercim around the theme of Manufacturing Excellence for Composites.
We thought it would be interesting to look at what Intercim offers for Composite Manufacturers through a customer case.

In the wake of the all-new Boeing 787, the first airliner predominantly built from carbon composites, the entire industry is seeing a major shift of the demand.

To put things in perspective, let’s look at the market dynamics. The Industry is gradually transitioning from experimental and low volume productions to massive amounts .
The amount of carbon fibers consumed by the Industry is expected to double over the next 6 years. Are the manufacturers ready for that “bungee” jump?

Reducing costs of composite manufacturing processes while coping with production ramp-ups now becomes strategic. Let’s look at the case of EADS Composites Atlantic, and how difficult it can be to ramp up a composite production.

Wonder what it feels like not being able to deliver when the customer asks for more?

“In the fall of 2006, five years into a major contract for the biweekly delivery of ten types of products (leading edges, rudders...) to be used on aircraft manufacturing, we had slipped dangerously behind schedule in manufacturing and deliveries, up to 6 months late on one product in particular,” recalls Séverine Guitton, Head of Quality & Methods for Composites Atlantic Limited (CAL).
On the most heavily affected leading edge products, the scrap rate had reached 13% and rework hit 28%! However, there was absolutely no logic that could explain this highly irregular defect. All of the manufacturing parameters, constantly checked and rechecked, fit perfectly with the plans.

Once the INTERCIM solution for Composite Manufacturing (Pertinence Suite) was in place, workers began collecting 96 parameters at various stages of the  production process, for each new part that was manufactured. The “Rule Discovery” module from INTERCIM, a patented technology, quickly identified two totally unrelated and until then unsuspected characteristics as directly influencing the recurrent defects. “Rules Discovery enabled us to clearly establish specific rules regarding key parameters, far from any known scientific explanation and most strikingly in total contradiction to all of our intuitions,” underlines Séverine Guitton. Then the workers receive conditional notifications in real time during the execution with the INTERCIM Operations Advisor module, live on the shop floor. “By applying these rules to our normal operating procedures, we immediately reduced the scrap rate from 13% to zero and rework came down from 28% to less than 1%,” she continues.

Does the Composites Atlantic example inspire you?
And what if that could apply to other industries as well?
