Dassault Aviation - Digital Design and 3D Modelling

Dassault Aviation : 03 July, 2007  (New Product)
In an extremely competitive environment, Dassault Aviation has set itself apart from its rivals by pioneering a revolution that will eventually spread throughout the worldwide industry. Digital design, which controls production of the Falcon 7X, is based on 3D modelling of all aircraft parts.
This virtual representation was made possible thanks to the CATIA design software developed by Dassault Systèmes. With CATIA, the physical mockup is replaced by a digital mockup. Today this digital design method is used across the globe in the aerospace, automobile, ship-building and other industries. The development of the Falcon 7X programme pushed the envelope of digital design by using a set of innovative software tools: Product Lifecycle Management. PLM allows all levels of the enterprise to work 'in context'.

This collaborative, multi-discipline arrangement extends to all the programme partners thanks to the virtual plateau, which was invented by Dassault Aviation and Dassault Systèmes for the 7X programme. To ensure that data can be shared between all the participants in the programme and that information can be accessed immediately, Dassault Aviation has devised some innovative work methods, based on a virtual plateau. Considerable gains were made in the industrialisation and production phases.

Major savings should be achieved in maintenance, since aircraft maintenance was taken into account far upstream in the design process.
