The ENOVIA VPLM solution has demonstrated its capabilities as anintegrated part of the Airbus Enterprise Data Management system,enabling Airbus to perform digital mock-up reviews and clash detectionearlier in the process. Due to the demonstrated benefits, Airbus hasdecided to expand the usage of ENOVIA VPLM to all programs. The CATIAand ENOVIA VPLM combination is becoming the standard environment forall new programs at Airbus.
"Increased collaboration and the ability to capitalize on pastprojects are critical to clients' ability to drive a profitableinnovation strategy. This is especially true in complex aircraftprojects," says Herve Rolland, vice-president, Product LifecycleManagement, IBM Southwest Europe. "Using our PLM solutions, Airbuswill be able to better address clients' specific needs, while reducingcosts and product development time."
"This decision by Airbus reflects the strength of our partnershipand our commitment to the company's future development," says EtienneDroit, executive vice-president PLM Sales and Distribution, DassaultSystemes. "The Airbus teams on each program will access a standardizedconfigured Digital Mock-Up, and capitalize on the developments ofprevious and current projects. This will facilitate design andknowledge re-use, enabling innovation and accelerated productdevelopment."
