September 16, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Dassault Systèmes has announced the launch of “Smarter, Faster, Lighter,” an offering that claims to co-ordinate a company’s mechanical, electronic and software innovations to more effectively realise high-value products.

Based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the Smarter, Lighter, Faster industry solution experience significantly improves the development cycle from first concepts to first article manufacturing. It provides fine-grain information exchange and collaboration in real-time between engineering teams, and delivers;

A single place to maintain all electronic, mechanical and software development data, from specifications, 3D models and analysis results to manufacturing requirements.

Ability to efficiently modularise and reuse existing designs while minimising redundant product variations.

Unified end-to-end design processes to retain and communicate the customer inputs, from requirement definition to final product validation.

Seamless concurrent collaboration with partners and suppliers, while assuring data consistency among different disciplines.

“The consumer electronics market is in a period of rapid evolution and manufacturers are under tremendous competitive pressure to be the first to market with unique and differentiated products. However, a successful product quickly attracts copycat products from the competition,” said Monica Menghini, Executive Vice President, Industries & Marketing, Dassault Systèmes. “To stay ahead of the competition, manufacturers must constantly enhance their products and support emerging technologies. The Smarter, Faster, Lighter industry solution experience spans first concept to first article, achieving the right design the first time, and providing the right consumer experience ahead of the competition.”
