Dana Holding, a global automotive supplier, will adopt Dassault Systemes' SIMULIA Simulation Lifecycle Management (SLM) application of Dassault Systemes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The company says this will expand its collaborative engineering strategy by sharing simulation processes and data across seven global technical centers. The SIMULIA SLM application provides a centrally-managed and searchable source for all of Dana's simulation data, which can be traced and tracked to improve product designs.
"Dassault Systemes' unique solution allows us to efficiently access and utilize data to improve our product designs and capabilities," said Frank Popielas, manager of advanced engineering for Dana's Power Technologies Group. "We have already seen an increase in our operational efficiency through the improved usage of CAE with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. By hosting the data in a central, searchable location, our engineers, sales and support teams are able to more accurately design our products from development to delivery, ultimately saving time and cost."
With the SIMULIA SLM application, companies can synchronize simulation with design data and track changes throughout the enterprise. In addition, repetitive tasks can be run automatically to save more time. The application also can be used as a framework to define and deploy best practices across global resources by capturing engineering expertise and sharing it globally, Dassault says.
