The Challenge

For the development of its new wide-body aircraft, Airbus needed to ensure quality and consistency across all internal and external stakeholders. Airbus had many challenges including a very aggressive development schedule and the need to ramp up production quickly to satisfy their delivery commitments. The lack of communication extended design time and introduced errors that drove up costs.

The Customer
About The Customer
Airbus is a global leader in aerospace, defense and related services. Airbus is a world’s leading aircraft manufacturer whose customer focus, commercial know-how, technological leadership and manufacturing efficiency have propelled it to the forefro
The Solution

Airbus uses Dassault Systemes' 3DEXPERIENCE applications for design, simulation and manufacturing on a single platform, where employees and suppliers collaborate in real-time on a unique digital mockup. Airbus federated their development platforms under one umbrella ENOVIA and provided Airbus employees and the extended enterprise with access to this unique data reference.

Data Collected
Design Process Flow, Production Efficiency
Operational Impact
  • [Management Effectiveness - Internal Collaboration]
    Deeper integration of information across departments and business units improves internal collaboration and end-to-end customer service.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
    Easier communications, faster decisions and faster problem solving are enabled through 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
