“Your Fantastic Projects are Buildable”

The following video features A. Zahner Company using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to better communicate and collaborate with AEC project owners and team members:

CEO William Zahner predicts future facades will increase in complexity, including more dynamic and kinetic aspects, and requiring an integrated platform. Such a solution will “open up opportunities for the design and fabrication community to do some really amazing things.”

The Zahner team found that developing precise 3D models gives reassures to clients that their risk is mitigated.

In addition, they are better able to communicate openly, transparently with clients, contractors, architects, subcontractors throughout the project.

Because of its complexity and the amount of coordination required, the Chrysalis Amphitheater was the flagship project where Zahner used the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

The Chrysalis has no walls, so navigating around the model could have been a challenge. But with the cloud-based platform, they were able to point everyone to the same location for effective collaboration.

Revolutionizing Smart Appliance Innovation through Collaboration

According to Berg Insight, in 2014, smart appliances made up one-third of the estimated 5.9 billion smart and connected products sold worldwide: that’s 2 billion smart appliances. With that level of production, and a market growing at an estimated CAGR of 15.4% toward a value of $37.2 billion USD by 2020 (MarketsandMarkets), there’s no doubt about it: customers love smart appliances.

Puremotion video washing machineIn the recent post “A New Spin on Washing Machine Design”, we explained how customers today expect more than just a product when they do business with a company: they would rather spend money on an experience than a thing. The ability of smart appliances to deliver delightful, intuitive experiences that make daily life easier and more pleasurable is in large measure the key to the smart appliance market’s success.

This is a theme we returned to in “The Secret to Creating Market-Winning Experiences”, in which we explored the use of collaborative simulation and design exploration software to help craft these compelling experiences, enabling manufactures to simulate virtual product experiences while evaluating and analyzing hundreds of design options.

engineer-puremotionSuch advanced software is invaluable because at technical level, designing great smart appliance experiences can be a daunting challenge. It requires that companies have engineering proficiency in a wide array of areas such as software, mechanical, electrical, fluid, electronics, software, and other specialized areas.  What’s more, success requires bringing all of these competencies together to collaboratively develop requirements, solve problems and optimize outcomes (see our post “How to Stay Competitive? Develop Smart Appliances in the Era of Experience”).

This kind of collaboration is essential for success in systems engineering in general, but the need for collaboration in the fast-growing but intensely competitive smart appliance market requires expanding collaboration to an enterprise level. It requires establishing an ongoing dialogue between design, engineering, manufacturing, marketing and support.

We’ve developed a short video, Pure Motion, to introduce the ways in which these disciplines can revolutionize smart appliance innovation through collaboration on a single platform – the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, while leveraging common 3D system models and digital assets across optimized processes.

Learning.

Engaging.

Interacting.


These are some of the benefits of attending an ‎ENOVIA‬ user group meeting.

Did you attend the 2016 North American event this last June? If you did and are looking to get hold of the presentations, or simply want to learn more about our meetings, head over to our Collaborative Innovation community on 3DSwYm today to get the content and continue the dialogue in the comments section or if you have any questions, ask away in the iQuestions section of the community.
While there you will see that our event in South Carolina is NOT the only event we have held. We have had similar, corresponding events in France and Italy in addition to the events held earlier this year. They are all documented in the community on a dedicated page to make it easy for you to find.
Keep track of our Calendar of Events to see where an event that you are interested in will be happening and plan to attend.
Why? Check out the video for a whole host of great reasons!
