Ask the Expert Sessions

Create and Use Industry Specific Vertical Applications for Configured Workflows

Presented by: Preeti Verma, Growth Solutions Consultant, Dassault Systèmes

Thursday, May 25, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CDT

Historically, simulation has been a niche domain dominated by experts for many years owing to the good understanding and knowledge required to solve complex FEA problems. Simulation tools have been developed for these experts, resulting in limited usage of the tools. Democratization of simulation has been getting a lot of attention from the CAE and manufacturing industries to expand it to a larger user base. To meet these demands, simulation tools are also transforming.

Industry specific vertical applications within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform set up in a simplified, top-down sequential, user guided setup are ideal for any scenario that has been standardized within an organization. Learn to easily create and use configured workflows for product design validation. Such workflows help to improve the design cycle time, make informed decisions on part design using simulation based validation, and understand the product performance better under real operating conditions, all with little to no FEA knowledge.


Model Based Manufacturing in the Age of Experience

Presented by: Nathan Yoffa, Dassault Systèmes

Thursday, June 22, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CDT

Learn how to enable a model-based, collaborative manufacturing environment that results in accelerated product introductions and improved manufacturing efficiencies.

  • Understand how Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps to improve manufacturing efficiencies in specific industrial scenarios.
  • Get a primer on the DELMIA portfolio and how it facilitates collaboration between Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management, and Supply Chain Planning & Operations.
  • Learn about “Digital Continuity” and how it enabled greater agility and innovation for leading global manufacturers

Nathan Yoffa is a Senior Expert Solution Consultant within the DELMIA Center of Expertise at Dassault Systèmes, with a particular focus on Digital Manufacturing and Enterprise topics.  He has over 30 years’ experience in the engineering software industry with a focus on 3D graphics applications, involving software development, architecture and design.  After graduating from Cornell University in 1983 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, he worked at General Motors for 2 years on their “CGS” 3D design software application before leaving to co-found Deneb Robotics, a 5-person startup created to deliver a 3D application for Robotic Simulation and offline programming, called IGRIP.   Deneb was acquired in 1997 by Dassault Systèmes and Nathan has continued to serve in a variety of technical positions within the newly-created DELMIA brand since then.  For ~ 10 years, Nathan led the creation and development of the DELMIA-brand global Industry Solution for the Aerospace and Defense Industry with a particular focus on Airframe OEM’s such as Boeing, Airbus, and Embraer.

More recently, Nathan has focused on Digital Manufacturing Enterprise architecture topics such as MBOM, Configuration and Change management and governance, and ERP/MES integration, all within the broader context of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
