What's in it for me?


Become an expert! The COE Annual Experience & TechniFair presents a unique opportunity for customers to hear from fellow experts across the customer, partner and Dassault spectrum. In addition to important industry and product updates, attendees benefit from real world customer case studies, best practices sharing sessions, hands-on training, and the opportunity to engage one-on-one with peers to solve problems and share ideas.

2017 Annual Experience attendees can expect to:

  • Near term enhancements and bug fixes (Simulia, Dymola, Simpack, Kinematics, iSight, fesafe)
  • Strategic enhancements (Simulia, Dymola, Simpack, Kinematics, iSight, fesafe)
  • Systems Engineering topics
  • Standards (FMI, Modelica, etc, .)

Achieving Sustainable Innovation - Business Challenges in the Age of Digitalization and the Path Forward

The business environment is becoming much more challenging with the fast-developing technologies, especially considering the digitalization of our life in general nowadays. The value of data and information not only needs to be understood but also made part of the overall business strategy for companies. It’s not anymore only a matter of capturing the data and information so it can be re-used but how we use and make the data and information in general available. This is defined through the set of tools used of course on one hand. On the other hand, even more so, processes and behavior play a major role defining a company’s foundational maturity and market position.

Foundational tools and environment, like innovation platforms enabling PLM, SLM, ALM and other areas as enterprise technologies are center-stage in a model-centric and system-focused engineering environment. In this presentation, we will discuss how specific challenges in this new fast-paced environment can be overcome. The role of organizational change, management and culture will be addressed and put into context with trends on the market, like Model-based Enterprise, IoT, Big Data and Cognitive Engineering, and why it is a requirement to enable sustainable innovation.

To Simulate or Flight Test - That is the Question

In depth study of simulation analysis used to validate flight test and thus simulate flight test resulting in reduced number of flight tests and by only performing successful flight tests to validate the simulation.

Democratizing & Managing Simulation via the 3DEXPERIENCE V+R Process Applications

Modeling and Simulation is a key enabler for driving Procter & Gamble’s superior brands and products. Modeling & Simulation is “growing up” within the development processes. Before, modeling may have provided direction into a final physical experiment which would be documented and used for a decision. Today, simulation is becoming how we learn, as well as that final test from which key decisions are made. This brings with it the responsibility that the data should be retained and documented in similar ways to how physical methods have been captured for reproducibility.

P&G also has a strategy to democratize simulation to non-experts through simplified interfaces and apps. Singularly, these systems have been very costly to create and maintain. A scalable solution is required to make this goal attainable. Any solution for P&G must consider our wide breath of simulation disciplines and global footprint of users and experts. The ability to retrieve and reuse our models requires a federated solution. In our work processes that use CATIA, we are driving toward integrated 3DExperience workflows that integration CATIA designs, FEA simulations and requirements management. In other areas, we are using the V+R Process Applications to develop and deploy our modeling capabilities. In both cases, we are looking to the 3DExperience platform as our modeling system of record.

The journey has centered on a partnership with SIMULIA to meet our Simulation Process & Data Management needs. P&G went through an extensive process of gathering requirements and then partnered with Simulia for these to be delivered within the 15x 3DEXPERIENCE platform. A platform is only half of the solution, driving adoption through culture change & deployment strategies are equally important.

This presentation will focus on the journey P&G has traveling and the successes we are seeing as 15x 3DEXPERIENCE is deployed.
