Why Products Are No Longer Enough: Consumers Today Buy Experiences

By Therese

Take a minute and think about the products you manufacture. Whether it’s in the area of High Tech, Consumer Goods, Transportation & Mobility, or any other industry, at the end of the day, it’s what motivates consumers to purchase that matters the most. And what motivates them more than the actual experience?

How Our Demo at IMTS Will Shape How You View Machining

By NC

Hi, I’m NC Kishore, Senior Technical Specialist at DELMIA. This blog is the first of many Manufacturing posts that you’ll see from me on the topic of Machining.

Let me ask you this. When you think of machining, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it images of your high school shop teacher’s class or simply the stark environment where machine tools are cutting, shaping and drilling metals, plastics and more? Today’s modern machine shop can be, and is, so much more. We would like to show you why that is at the Dassault Systèmes booth at the upcoming International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS).

IMTS Machining

The 4th Industrial Revolution Has Started. See It At IMTS, Booth E-3125.

At the booth, you can expect to see a Single Source for Speed—an Industry Solution Experience for industrial equipment companies that need to manage their entire product development process – from idea to design, production and servicing – across all geographic locations. Our DELMIA representatives will be there to support this experience with our own DELMIA Machining demonstration.

We will be featuring the 3DEXPERIENCE for Machining. During our demo, find out why DELMIA Industrial Equipment Machining enables manufacturers to program, simulate and optimize machining processes through tight integration of tool path programming with machine tool simulation. Come see how NC programmers, for example, can identify and resolve errors in tool paths earlier and reduce programming lead times. With capabilities to capture and reuse best practice knowledge, NC programmers can program smarter and faster while maintaining the quality of the programs and precision on parts machined.

Does this sound like something you would like to see? Let me know in the comments below.

Just be sure to join us at IMTS 2014 September 8 – 13 at the McCormick Place in Chicago and stop by the Dassault Systèmes  Booth, #E-3125 for more information on DELMIA IE Machining.

Dassault Systèmes Welcomes Quintiq!

Quintiq acquisition

We’re delighted to announce earlier today the acquisition of Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain operations planning & optimization. Quintiq comes as a great new addition to the DELMIA Brand, which already saw its scope extended after the acquisition of Apriso last year, bringing the world of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM).

Who is Quintiq?

Founded in 1997 and headquarted in The Netherlands, Quintiq brings the expertise of just over 800 employees in 16 offices spanning from the US to Europe, Asia and Australia. Quintiq is not only among the global leaders in Supply Chain Management, but has demonstrated a tremendous growth dynamic in the past years (the fastest growing company in the SCM space).

What does Quintiq bring to 3DS and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

Dassault Systèmes’ goal is to enable our clients “to create delightful experiences for their ultimate customers or consumers”. Quintiq complements our existing offering to help our clients deliver the perfect end-user experience, on time, on cost and on expectation. In fact, the value Quintiq brings to the 3DEXPERIENCE is so significant that we decided to evolve DELMIA’s current footprint in the world of production into “Global Industrial Operations”.

From an industry coverage perspective, Quintiq increases DELMIA’s offerings for new industries such as primary metals, mining, oil & gas, rail, logistics, and workforce-intensive services industries (such as delivery, rail transportation or air traffic control).

You can find back Quintiq on social networks on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
