Australian manufacturing has been subject to a host of economic challenges in recent times. Factors such as the high Australian dollar, intense market competition and high cost of materials have caused many businesses to buckle under the pressure. On the other hand it has also pushed others to find innovative ways to keep their businesses afloat.
More and more products are being customized to meet certain specifications, as customers these days demand for far greater control over the features of products. Just as consumers have the capacity to purchase goods from anywhere in the world, producers now also have the ability to manufacture their products using materials and input sourced from around the globe.
Dassault Systemes’ Single Source for Speed 3DEXPERIENCE offers a digital solution to streamline businesses engaged in the manufacturing of industrial equipment. It allows for faster product development and order fulfillment processes to be conducted globally. Businesses would be able to control production and coordinate information from various centers around the world without sacrificing the need to respond timely to their clients’ queries.
Industrial equipment companies could benefit from the Single Source for Speed 3DEXPERIENCE, in times when equipment must be installed in a customer’s site in another part of the world. According to Dassault Systemes’ website, companies can manage the entire product development process – from sourcing to design, production and services – across all geographic locations. This includes the mechanical, piping and tubing, as well as electrical schematics processes.
Using the Single Source for Speed 3dEXPERIENCE, companies are given “real-time access to accurate information across all disciplines”, i.e. engineering, production, service departments, that will help them arrive at correct decisions, thereby accelerating the time to when they can market products.
The software also helps businesses discover missed deadlines and keep track of their schedule which consequently reduces new product introduction mishaps. It also helps eliminate errors brought about by miscommunication and imprecise work instructions during the manufacturing process, eventually contributing to the high quality of a product or equipment.
Since ‘mass customization’ is being applied more in the changing manufacturing landscape, a software solution such as Single Source for Speed will contribute greatly to the overall efficiency of a manufacturing business. Highlighting the key benefits, Dassault Systemes says the solution has a lower cost of ownership, allows for quick integration of newly acquired companies and enables businesses to produce products tailored to fit customer preference. Overall it is beneficial for monitoring the complete product lifecycle.
“Single Source for Speed liberates and accelerates your product development, order fulfillment and service activities for all product configurations in a sustainable way. This paves the way for a quick industrial integration of newly acquired companies. It delivers a unique product development backbone that enables your enterprise to realize your strategic initiatives,” says the company.
Established in 1981, Dassault Systemes has helped its industrial customers maximize product design and development through their world-leading 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock-Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions. The company brings value to over 150,000 customers of all sizes, in all industries around the globe.
