The event on the basis of the Technopark “Skolkovo” gathered more than 800 leading specialists in the field of digitalization, including key customers and partners of the company.
Moscow, 8 May, 2019 – Dassault Systèmes company, a global leader in 3D design solutions, digital 3D mock-ups and product lifecycle management, held its annual 3DEXPERIENCE Forum in Russia. More than 800 experts and representatives of the largest Russian and international companies gathered to discuss the possibilities of improving the efficiency and competitiveness of industrial enterprises through the introduction of modern technologies, as well as to share examples of successfully implemented projects in the field of digital transformation.
The event was opened by Alexey Ryzhov, Managing Director of Dassault Systèmes in Russia and the CIS, and in his welcoming speech, he presented to the forum participants the concept of Industrial Renaissance – a fundamentally new stage of digitalization of enterprises, the main catalyst and driving force of which is Dassault Systèmes.
In today’s economy, the key value shifts from the product itself to the emotions and impressions of the consumer who interacts with it. Thus, to achieve a successful business transformation, it is not enough to digitize existing processes. The main focus should be on tools for 3D modeling and simulation, assessment of product compliance with industry specifications and requirements, solutions for production planning and testing of products in a virtual environment. At the same time, all these steps should be taken before the development of physical samples.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform of Dassault Systèmes fully meets the requirements of «the impressions economy» – its implementation allows to combine the entire array of knowledge and know-how, accumulated by the company, which radically changes the principles of collaboration within the company and creates unprecedented opportunities for the development of new categories of products, services and transformation of user experience. In this sense, the importance of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for manufacturing enterprises is comparable to the invention of the printing press in the XV century, which launched the process of large-scale dissemination of knowledge, which subsequently gave rise to the era of creativity and innovation.
The plenary session was continued by Olivier Ribet, Vice President of Industrial Solutions for Dassault Systèmes in the EMEAR region, and demonstrated real examples of the implementation of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in industries such as aerospace, automotive or engineering. Mr Ribet also mentioned some of the largest clients of Dassault Systèmes: Boeing, Airbus, EDF, which allowed to once again demonstrate the scope of projects, in which the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is used.
Speaking about the digitalization of industry in Russia, Olivier Ribet said:
“Russian companies have huge advantages over the production of other countries: the domestic market is huge, in addition, in Russia, there are graduates of one of the best engineering schools in the world. We can clearly see, thanks to numerous speeches at today’s Forum, that the digital transformation in Russia is gaining momentum. And we are proud to be a part of this process, cooperating with representatives of the largest enterprises in strategically important industries for the country.”
Alexey Voilenko, Deputy General Director for Organizational Development of SkyWay company «String Technologies», shared one of the striking examples of using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The company is working on the new generation of transport systems, a complex product at the junction of engineering and construction. Thanks to the introduction of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SkyWay «String Technologies» has managed to combine all the development, design and production tools into one single digital environment, and the company’s specialists have been able to track all stages of the product life cycle from the working sketch to production and operation. In addition, the existing problem of mismatch of finished elements during assembly was successfully solved. According to Alexey Voilenko, the introduced transfer of technologies and knowledge using the 3dexperience platform of Dassault Systèmes allowed the company to reduce the gap between the ways of joint development by 10 years.
In addition to an extensive business program that covered the discussion of the digitalization of industrial enterprises in a variety of industries from automotive to mining, the Forum also organized a demo zone of technologies Dassault Systèmes. On the example of the company, which is engaged in the design, manufacture and maintenance of bottling lines for the food industry, there were demonstrated the advantages of digital data continuity at all stages of the product life cycle and the ability to quickly solve various problems at any stage of the project development.
