Piaggio Aero Industries selects Dassault Systèmes V6 for global product development

ENOVIA V6 provides global collaboration platform, production-proven SOA environment and critical enterprise solutions to drive business transformation and foster innovation

Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Paris:DSY) (NASDAQ:DASTY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Piaggio Aero Industries, one of the world's most prestigious aircraft manufacturers, has selected DS V6 as its global product development platform including all required applications to support the company's business needs and industry leadership strategy.

Piaggio Aero Industries is implementing the ENOVIA V6 platform and DS PLM applications including ENOVIA and CATIA to enable the company and its core risk-sharing partners to collaborate on the creation of new product designs in real time. This approach addresses the complexity of managing a global supply chain by developing a single version of the truth capable of speeding product delivery, reducing operational costs and driving return on investment.

"As the international aerospace industry continues to evolve, our biggest business challenge is ensuring that we have the infrastructure in place to support the transformation of our company from a low volume, niche manufacturer in a best-in-class, global player," said Antonio Maglione, CTO, Piaggio Aero Industries. "Dassault Systemes' V6 PLM solution is enabling us to more efficiently compete on a global stage by maximizing real time collaboration to drive sustainable innovation, product development and new programs."

Known for the development of its P180 Avanti II,Piaggio Aero wanted to transform its isolated business processes into a closely integrated collaborative environment that would provide employees and partners with access to mission-critical intellectual property including design data. The DS V6 solution provided a centralized PLM platform to support product development, communication and data sharing, and decision-making across the product lifecycle of its aircraft.

Michel Tellier, CEO, ENOVIA, Dassault Systèmes says, "Piaggio Aero Industries is demonstrating its industry leadership by adopting DS's vision and solutions supporting PLM 2.0, or PLM online for all. Whereas other companies are still deploying separate engineering and enterprise solutions, DS's ENOVIA V6 is the only solution that provides a single, unified collaboration platform for all users In addition, ENOVIA delivers production proven applications built on an SOA environment including regulatory compliance/eco design, integrated global supply chain management, program management and contracts and security management all on one platform that scales from workgroups to support a global enterprise, delivering low TCO and a platform for innovation. When combined with DS CATIA for real-time collaboration and 3D-design, Piaggio is well-positioned to surpass their competitors in delivering next-generation products first — in both business aviation and engine design."

To enhance the real time component of the implementation, Piaggio Aero also deployed the ENOVIA 3DLive interface as part of the V6 solution. Designed as a web-based 3D application for improved collaboration, 3DLive provides Piaggio Aero's technical and non-technical employees with 24/7 access to a common environment to share and manage mission critical intellectual property (IP) for the development of design elements and programs. For example, users have the ability to edit the same model virtually in real time over the Internet without physically having to share large, image-based files.
