In advance of the 2020 COExperience event, COE’s Infrastructure, Develop, Deploy & Knowledge (IDDK) division has changed its name to Develop & Deploy. This rebranding is an effort to keep up with Dassault Systèmes creativity. Eric Neuville, CATIA Solutions Creator at Luxembourg-based Leko Labs, recently discussed the change and other topics relating to COE.
Develop & Deploy aims to customize CATIA through configuration, new development, and deployment of the solution. This is based on needs and requests from users; if it is not driven by Quality, Productivity, or Innovation, there might not be a business case to do anything, according to Neuville.
In the run up to the 2020 COExperience in Miami, Florida, Neuville and his team see more users coming to 3DEXPERIENCE®, driving the need to translate V5 development into a new platform. The goal is to see success stories about V5 EKL development simply moved to 3DEXPERIENCE®. In addition, Neuville hopes the event will highlight the power of RFLP with EKL development, especially if it demonstrates easy customization or configuration of a cloud solution.
While CAD has long been defined as Computer Aided Design, computer power is now much more than it was 20 years ago. The Develop & Deploy team acknowledges that artificial intelligence systems will inevitably change the computing landscape, but even without fully embracing AI “we can improve what we ask computers to do,” Neuville says. For example, computers used to simply assist in design, but now they can actually do the design. This transformation could be referred to as Computer Automated Design. It is up to each individual developer to decide if they want to continue with Computer Aided Design or move on to Computer Automated Design.
More than 30 sessions are anticipated to be available within the Develop & Deploy track at COExperience. Mark your calendar now and plan to attend April 26-29. Registration will be available in September.
