Do you want to develop innovative and successful products?

Do you need to improve efficiencies and make the right decisions while reducing development time and costs? 

Dassault Systèmes has developed “My Design”, an integrated solution that expands your growth and helps increase your margin, making sure you develop a successful product that your consumers will love.

Click here to discover how a typical furniture company has rapidly developed a new office chair, with an integrated approach, from ideation to market launch. Imagine that all internal and external players can easily collaborate together.


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.



“My Design” is an integrated solution based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for Consumer Goods companies. It allows the free flow of ideas through social innovation and provides multimedia dashboards to keep abreast of market needs. With “My Design”, your company can develop innovative products faster and cheaper and deliver products consumers love.

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!

A New Model for Manufacturing Innovation

by Werner Krings

The Austrian Economist Joseph Schumpeter argued that industries must incessantly revolutionize their economic structure from within. I interpret this statement to mean that manufacturers, especially in the High Tech industry, must continually strive to innovate with better or more effective processes in order to build new products.

Innovation is a core attribute of successful High Tech manufacturers, impacting every aspect of the business–economics, business profitability, product design, technology, and engineering best-practices, not to mention overall brand value.
Innovation impacts growth

Manufacturing innovation can mean the use Lean and other cost reduction strategies. Increasingly, it means automation and digitization of manufacturing as we move toward the era of the Digital Factory and big data analytics. And, In today’s global landscape, innovation must include the ability to easily replicate processes across sites to ensure higher global quality standards and greater control, visibility and synchronization across operations.

How do you get there?

A key requirement for global innovation is a unified production environment across facilities. High Tech manufacturers that use different processes and production systems in their various facilities will have difficulty achieving innovation– effectively blocking all of the potential benefits. When different plants use different MES systems, for example, there can be little agility, as every change becomes a custom IT project.

Improve operations processes across sites

This is why High Tech manufacturing leaders have moved toward unified and standardized systems, so that process changes and manufacturing agility can be achieved faster and more easily. In such an environment, global shop floor operations can be unified through a Center of Excellence, which can then ensure comparable and measurable manufacturing standards on a global scale. As they say, you can’t improve what you can’t measure.

Measuring Innovation

Innovation can (and should) be measured on an organizational level. The implementation of manufacturing intelligence solutions is often justified by this single function, as part of a manufacturer’s quest to achieve better visibility across operations. The ability to measure is greatly enhanced when it is part of an overall innovation strategy, underpinned by unified technology.

High Tech manufacturers will want to measure several aspects of innovation, such as business measures related to profitability, innovation process efficiency, or employees’ contribution and motivation. Measured values might include new product revenue, spending in R&D, time to market, quality scores for suppliers, and growth in emerging markets.

Manufacturing Innovation

What is pivotal is that innovation must align with corporate strategy and global manufacturing performance in order to ensure continuous growth and return on investment. A well-defined innovation program, combined with an IT infrastructure that supports global agility, is essential for High Tech manufacturers that want to compete and grow in a sustainable fashion, now and in the future.

Now there’s a solution for greater visibility, control, and synchronization of operations. Visit the Flexible Production solution page and read the flyer to find out what a flexible global production platform for manufacturing can do for your High Tech enterprise.
