Airbus and Dassault Systèmes will intensify their long cooperation on the implementation of digital technology within the design, manufacturing, simulation, and services of commercial aircraft, as on February 6 they announced a 5-year Memorandum of Agreement to use DS’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. With this Airbus will make the next step in its DDMS philosophy, which stands for Digital Design, Manufacturing and Services.
“We are not just talking about digitalization or a 3D experience, we are rethinking the way aircraft are designed and operated, streamlining and speeding up our processes with customer satisfaction in mind,” said Guillaume Faury, President Airbus Commercial Aircraft. “DDMS is a catalyst for change and with it, we are building a new model for the European aerospace industry with state of the art technology. Our target is a robust production setup that offers a reduction in product development lead time.”
