PLM Solutions Designed For Small- And Medium-Sized Manufacturers

Dassault Systemes offers the Delmia PLM Express, a comprehensive set of digital manufacturing solutions that makes product lifestyle management (PLM) technology accessible to smaller businesses within the supply chain. Part suppliers, engineering firms and tooling providers can access this technology. These solutions offer role-based applications that allow smaller companies to connect with larger organizations.


The set of solutions is designed for five to more than 50-person companies or any organization that has a need for an entry-level PLM value channel offering for manufacturing.


The solution set is offered in five role-based domains.


Resource planning provides a complete solution for the resource planner with capabilities to model in 3D, validate the tooling and complete manufacturing work cells in the virtual world; robotics delivers robotic simulation and offline programming capabilities that include functionality for arc and spot welding applications; ergonomics deliver the capability to build kinematic human models and teach various human tasks, to simulate processes and to optimize the human work space; process planning delivers assembly process planning, validation and simulation tools, plus assembly animation and dynamic authoring capabilities for assembly shopfloor work instructions; and controls offer smart device builder capabilities for the engineer to create the mechanical, kinematical and logical behavior of devices that can then be used to validate a PLC program in a virtual environment.
