Marketing and Innovation

What if marketing and innovative departments could keep abreast of market needs by managing the free flow of ideas and providing multimedia dashboards?

With a few clicks, the Marketing Manager can easily consult design trends and blogs and monitor project status, all in real-time. Together with her colleagues, she can perform a detailed review of key trends, challenges and consumer expectations. With this visual information, managers can assign maturity levels bumping them up from proposal status, to concept through to validation.

Creative Design

What if industrial designers and stylists used powerful and intuitive tools that allowed them to focus on innovation?

With CATIA, industrial designers can create freeform 3D sketches. It’s fast and easy to use allowing the user to explore more design scenarios in a short amount of time. He can transform ideas into a 3D reality while exploring detail design variations directly on 3D objects. Sketching combined with the intuitive act of painting demonstrates the power of realistic 3D modeling. Using subdivision-surface technology, the industrial designer can very quickly sculpt in 3D, while keeping surface curvature continuity under control.

Decision Review

What if you could improve efficiencies and make the right decisions while reducing development time?

It’s time for important decisions to be made during a design-review session with the product manager, the CEO and the marketing manager. To ‘sell’ his ideas, the industrial designer is now using CATIA to present and promote projects with a high-end visualization and rendering solution.

Concept Development

What if you could reduce development costs by enabling industrial designers and mechanical engineers to work in the same integrated environment?

Mechanical engineers can quickly design Sheet Metal parts by taking capitalized know-how and manufacturing constraints into account early in the design process. The engineer can intuitively manage the forming process directly in 3D and automatically generate flattened views from the 3D design part.

Simulation and Validation

What if decision makers could harness accurate information to define the best consumer experience and make the right choices?

Integrating simulation in the design workflow improves quality and reduces the cost linked to physical testing. Now that the product is completely defined, all actors and decision makers can easily experience the final product in context and digital assets are ready to be re-used for marketing purposes.

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.

How BIM Will Impact the Civil Design Process

BIM: A Game Changer for Civil Design

The AEC industry is moving toward embracing a collaborative environment. It is crucial that owners, designers, engineers, and fabricators have simultaneous and real-time access to design models and project data.

AEC business leaders are advocating for Building Information Modeling (BIM) as the future of infrastructure projects worldwide.

Adopting BIM technologies into the civil design process will enable stakeholders to instantly collaborate with each other on an integrated design platform. BIM can provide for digital sharing and collaborating of models, instead of individually working from drawings.

As a result, BIM will increase efficiency and reduce time and cost, which is imperative due to the scope and pace of civil design projects coming from today’s emerging markets. With large infrastructural projects, BIM is a must.

Without BIM, design changes can be crippling. Cross referencing and approval times drag down productivity and drastically increase construction time and costs. Departments struggle to work coherently with each other. Indexing the work becomes an extra process, thus slowing down the entire project timeline. Teams that depend on drawings, not an integrated BIM model, are unable to fully visualize a structure’s proper angle views due to the limitations of a drawing.

Fortunately, an integrated design platform can avoid these situations.

For AEC stakeholders, BIM is the future of the process.

Better Civil Infrastructure Outcomes Through Collaborative Processes

BIM provides visualization, shared information, and accommodates changes. For best results, identify a project suitable for process experimentation, then determine what value you want to get from a BIM tool set.

Significant BIM capabilities to consider include:

  • End-to-End Collaboration. Sharing with digital models is easier than with drawing sets, while also promoting collaboration of ideas. No team member is isolated as in the past. The project team also can now collaborate on cost and pricing as the design progresses, rather than work from one set budget and schedule.
  • 3D Visualization, instead of 2D drawings. Digital imagery captures reality using simulation tools in a shared model in a way that paper cannot capture. Accuracy is enhanced; rework and duplication of drawings across building disciplines is minimized.
  • Flexible Design Changes. A shared model like BIM can accommodate for changes in design during construction, which can be frequent. In the past, this was a very difficult process.
  • Integrated Data. The platform connects to fabrication and construction data. This promotes pre-fabrication and reduces waste.

As implemented by an integrated solution, BIM makes the civil design process easier—and improves the AEC industry as a whole. BIM can ensure a greater level of accuracy in civil infrastructure projects, improve efficiency and productivity, and save money and time.
