Dassault Aviation Digital Transformation Initiatives

About the Customer

Dassault Aviation SA is an international French aircraft manufacturer of military, regional, and business jets, a subsidiary of Dassault Group. It was founded in 1929 by Marcel Bloch as Société des Avions Marcel Bloch or "MB".

Scope and Challenges

Being in the business for over 30 years, Dassault Aviation has always maintained their spot as a leader in digital industrial processes. In May of 2018, they continued their digital transformation to further optimize its operations in terms of product and service cycles, quality and costs.

The chosen PLM platform 3DEXPIRIENCE is expected to respond to the challenges ahead: expansion of the Falcon range of business jets, an evolution of the Rafale fighter, cooperative development of the future combat aircraft and the MALE observation UAV, etc.

This cooperation agreement is in line with Dassault Aviation's culture of continuous innovation, which has been the crucible of the CATIA software and which then led to the emergence of the virtual model process, then the digital collaboration process between industrial partners for international cooperation programs.

Outcome and Implications

Dassault Aviation improved the digital processes to design, manufacture and support the products and services expected by civil and military customers throughout the world. 

Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of Dassault Systèmes, added: "Dassault Aviation has chosen an ambitious strategy: to implement the 3DEXPERIENCE platform as a vehicle for business integration and transformation, integrating business model, industrial model, development and support. This illustrates perfectly the multi-faceted dimension of collaborative innovation that enables us to offer unique experiences to our prestigious clients. Digital business twins, enabling the integration of products with services, are a perfect illustration of the industry of the 21st century.”
