Dassault Systems announced the launch of "Target Zero Defect," an industry solution experience providing an integrated and open collaborative environment to enable zero defects across the entire product development process, the company says.
According to Dassault: "Connecting and managing all OEM and supplier stakeholders in a collaborative business platform enables a company to detect potential mistakes sooner, and thus lower its development costs. Yet, the reality is that many processes are still disconnected."
The new solution helps companies capture and leverage existing corporate knowledge, connecting design, engineering and manufacturing disciplines across a company's entire ecosystem of partners and suppliers. It includes virtual design and simulation in all stages of product creation, from conceptual design to virtual manufacturing, including all domains such as chassis, powertrain, and body and interior.
"At Tesla Motors, we depend on everybody to be as creative and productive as possible. Part of the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is its ability to allow everybody involved in the product development process to focus on being creative and productive rather than focusing on the process and tools," said Paul Lomangino, engineering tools director, Tesla Motors. "The ability of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to handle the complexity both in our product and our process as we move forward is very important. Its ability to unify multiple organizations under one banner and bring them all together within a common solution will help us immeasurably going forward."
"Instead of corrective action to solve defects, the industry needs to eliminate them upfront by capitalizing on institutional knowledge and tracking costs," said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, industry and marketing, at Dassault. "This is about creating a holistic view of your business to improve the entire development process. Tesla is an incredible success story based on daring innovation with real profitability and we are proud to be part of this achievement."
