Mubadala firm picks Dassault solutions
Abu Dhabi, November 16, 2011
Strata, Mubadala Aerospace’s advanced composite aerostructures manufacturing plant in Al Ain, has selected key solutions from Dassault Systèmes to support its end-to-end engineering to manufacturing processes.
Dassault Systèmes is a pioneer in 3D software market and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions
The company will join its UAE partner Dasbat Aviation for deployment of the PLM solutions at Strata.
The selected Dassault Systèmes’ solutions include Catia for virtual design, Delmia for digital manufacturing and Enovia for collaborative innovation.
The full roll-out of the PLM solutions will be completed this month, said a company statement.
The Mubadala company said the main objective for deployment was to accelerate the introduction of new products, lower development costs, and reduce time to certification.
Strata is unifying its engineering processes by standardizing its solutions around Catia and Enovia, as a single environment to improve real-time collaborative engineering, said a senior official.
Ross Bradley, chief executive officer of Strata pointed out that the integration of the Enovia and Delmia solutions combined with Catia, will add a new dimension to the way Strata approaches its manufacturing processes in a 3D environment.
"As an organization that prides itself on pushing the boundaries of new technologies, Strata is always looking for technology-driven solutions and new approaches to delivering the very best results for its customers," he remarked.
"It will provide common change management and configuration control between engineering and manufacturing to speed development, making sure both teams are working collaboratively on the same version," he added.
Philippe Forestier, executive VP Global Affairs and Communities, Dassault Systèmes, said, “Through the use of advanced collaborative processes, Strata will be able to achieve important cost reductions whilst meeting the most stringent quality requirements."
"I’m delighted that Dassault Systèmes is playing a key role in Strata by supporting the very ambitious program to become a leading Tier-1 supplier in composite aerostructures design and manufacturing," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
