Dassault Systemes announced the launch of a new industry solution experience for aerospace and defense companies called "Winning Program."
According to Dassault, the aerospace and defense industry is under increasing pressure to deliver proposals or offers with demanding initial commitments. Historically, this has been a challenge for most companies because they lacked tools that could enable them to efficiently capture and reuse intellectual property across programs, quickly explore alternative designs to find the best one, and simulate the impact of decisions on the program throughout its lifecycle.
The new solution enables companies to perform front-end business activities defining new offers and/or win new business and comprehensively execute the requisite system engineering choices and associated trade studies, the company says. Companies who are bidding on new work can use "Winning Program" to manage their proposal and conceptual design processes. Those who are internally proposing a new market offering, such as an airplane, can use it to manage their conceptual design process.
"It's been shown that the majority of costs throughout a program's lifecycle are determined at the earliest stages of concept and preliminary design. Many companies have innovative ideas and visions that they include in those early phases, but until now, they've had no way to determine exactly how they'll execute. As a result, time and budget overruns have been far from unusual occurrences," said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, industry and marketing, at Dassault. "By providing a means to fully understand the elements of each proposal or offer, along with a detailed roadmap of how each element will be delivered, our 3DEXPERIENCE platform with the 'Winning Program' industry solution experience enables companies to increase their win ratio and deliver more innovative offerings to market without the associated risk."
