3DEXPERIENCE Universes Revitalize Innovation, Enable Mass Customization and Create New Ecosystems in One of World’s Largest Industrial Countries
TOKYO - Saturday, November 7th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Dassault Systèmes is helping define and drive the digital transformation of industry in Japan during the “Year of Franco-Japanese Innovation,” an initiative launched in Tokyo on October 5, 2015 by the prime ministers of France and Japan to support cooperation between the two countries on innovation and scientific excellence.
Dassault Systèmes is hosting the event “Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” in Tokyo today, bringing together thought leaders and C-level executives from across Japan to address the challenges that Japanese industry is facing and their collective vision for its future. Together, they will explore how the use of virtual design, simulation, manufacturing and collaboration applications can help revitalize innovation, enable the shift from mass production to mass customization, encourage an open innovation platform and create new ecosystems with fab labs that will boost the local economy.
As one of the largest industrial countries in the world, Japan is now embarking on a highly-structured, five-year program—much like “Industry of the Future” in France and “Industry 4.0” in Germany—in order to embrace new digital concepts that can revolutionize industrial processes such as mass customization.
“The digital revolution that has taken place in design will soon take place at the manufacturing level and, by leveraging the possibilities offered by virtual universes, manufacturing can create a sustainable future,” said Bernard Charlès, President & CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “Industrial innovation integrates multiple digital concepts that are changing existing processes and creating a dynamic, holistic and more sustainable production model, including system-driven and interconnected production environments based on manufacturing-as-a-service, additive manufacturing and the use of new materials. Dassault Systèmes is participating in approximately 50 manufacturing programs around the world, including in Japan, to help bring together industrial and research ecosystems, combine their respective skills and focus their investments.”
A long-time technological partner to many of the largest industrial groups in Japan, Dassault Systèmes, with its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, brings state-of-the-art manufacturing solutions to mechanical, science-based and chemical industries worldwide.
“Manufacturing in the Age of Experience” is the first of many events that Dassault Systèmes will host during the “Year of Franco-Japanese Innovation.” The company was present at the official signing of this initiative, where it participated in a panel on digital innovation and demonstrated its 3DEXPERIENCity smart city project, Living Heart smart healthcare project and 3DEXCITE’s 3D marketing automation applications. Dassault Systèmes also has partnerships with a number of fab labs in Japan who are deploying the company’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
