Dassault Systèmes and BoostAerospace Announce "AirDesign" Collaboration Platform
VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France --(Business Wire)--
Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company,
world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product
Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions and BoostAeroSpace, the European
aerospace and defense digital exchange hub, announced today the launch
of "AirDesign," the European aerospace and defence industry's
AirDesign is a scalable collaboration platform available as a service on
a high-security, private cloud or on-premise. Distributed by
BoostAerospace and Dassault Systèmes (News - Alert), it consists of a neutral workspace
for advanced OEM and partner PLM collaboration, design and
manufacturing. Considered the next generation platform for collaboration
and exchange, it has been designed to integrate all the key industry
players, from OEM to small and medium business enterprises.
AirDesign drastically reduces operational costs for all partners through
a single infrastructure, common exchange methods, open standards and
easy access, all without adversely impacting existing information
systems. All the primary European OEMs jointly requested and defined
this platform in order to facilitate exchanges, support their suppliers'
ecosystems and generate new opportunities with services.
"The very complex problems of orchestrating aerospace and defence PLM
systems between multiple partners have been solved with AirDesign," said
Jean Ferlus, CEO of BoostAerospace. "Its ability to handle and
synchronize the exchange of highly secured PLM data has a positive
effect on the quality, efficiency and productivity of the European
aerospace industry. I gives the industry a strong application to
To manage the exchange of PLM data between all partners whatever their
systems may be, AirDesign delivers three key capabilities through its
digital exchange hub:
The first allows an OEM to organize exchanges in the context of
programs and projects, including the delegation of administrative
The second is an integrated, secured and automatic technical data
package exchange. The traceability needed for complex programs is a
native capability, ensuring proper management of large technical files
between OEMs and suppliers;
The third capability consists of access to a wide variety of services,
including converters based on standards or approval services that a
partner can use during an exchange.
AirDesign provides new opportunities for all stakeholders in the
aerospace ecosystem. Additional developments are planned, all leveraging
the inclusiveness and openness of the AirDesign platform, powered by
Dassault Systemes' (News - Alert) 3DEXPERIENCE platform and ENOVIA application.
"AirDesign provides an environment for aerospace and defence industry
partners to accelerate and sustain collaborative innovation," said
Michel Tellier, Vice President, Aerospace & Defence Industry, Dassault
Systèmes. "It opens a large number of opportunities for suppliers of all
sizes, as they will join an on-the-cloud mutualized infrastructure,
spending the money and resources normally needed for an IT
infrastructure on developing their business with more customers."
Dassault Systèmes is attending the Farnborough International Airshow
(July 14-18) in the chalet B-32.
