The New Normal? What does it mean?
And how do product manufacturers adapt in 2020 and beyond?
Coming through COVID-19, companies are being forced to continue designing, engineering and manufacturing their products, using remote and distributed teams. Many of these companies are turning to cloud based technologies, to better collaborate and keep their teams “together” and engaged, even while being spread and dispersed.
XD Innovation and Dassault Systemes have been providing innovative solutions to design and manufacturing professionals for years, through flagship products such as CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, ENOVIA, SIMULIA and DELMIA. 3DXCloud is taking these tools one step further. We’ve combined them with 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform on Cloud, so that companies can design, engineer and simulate their products anywhere, anytime, using any device.
Let’s take a look at 3 reasons we believe you’d benefit from 3DXCloud:
1. Increased Collaboration
You know better than anyone when it comes to product design and manufacturing, the closer the collaboration, the better the end result. It’s easier said than done, though, and creating open lines of communication between dispersed teams in different cities and departments can seem impossible at times.
3DXCloud addresses these challenges with a carefully selected set of product data and lifecycle data management tools. You can forget about waiting for an email or the next conference meeting to discuss changes to your plans or project. The 3DMessaging chat service allows users to communicate effectively from native apps for instant messaging functionality and immediate discussion.
Interacting with other stakeholders is easier now with dashboards and communities. With these features, users can make better decisions faster, so that your entire project gets to market promptly. Product and requirement managers can ensure customer needs are met, from planning to launch, with every single product thanks to the interactive processes provided by 3DEXPERIENCE on the cloud.
When multiple team members can efficiently work together without time delays, they can deliver unparalleled products that delight your end-users far more quickly.
2. Improved Execution
Sharing documents, 3D Models, prototypes, and plans have gotten easier with the emergence of the internet, but the most important pieces of information aren’t always accessible when you need them.
We’ve harnessed the power of cloud technologies to revolutionize the way your teams can operate. Managing product designs and documentation directly from SOLIDWORKS or CATIA is simple thanks to our cloud-based data and product lifecycle management systems. Your users can even combine and collect data from multiple cloud sources, including Google Drive and Dropbox. The 3DPlay application within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform also allows users to view, rotate and annotate 3D models on their browser for better execution of projects and traceability between different departments and teams. Data access is always on with 3DX Cloud to ensure your teams can utilize the information they need when they need it.
We’ll help you ensure your team members are focusing on innovating rather than finding the tools and data necessary to succeed.
3. Accelerated Innovation
Executing a plan and delivering an innovative product requires a multitude of products and platforms. Whether your team is using CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, ENOVIA, SIMULIA, or any combination thereof, it’s never been easy to share the knowledge between them. Until now, that is.
With 3DEXPERIENCE®, we are helping you break free from the IT constraints that typically hinder the product development process to help you accelerate innovation. With a collaborative and interactive environment, your stakeholders, from design engineers to customers, can work together on iterations faster than ever before so that you can deliver a superior product at an expedited rate.
Imagine, design, and simulate your product or parts from one single source of truth to deliver them to market faster.
With 3DX Cloud’s tools, your team members can collaborate seamlessly. We’ll help you utilize the 3DEXPERIENCE on Cloud with CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, ENOVIA, and SIMULIA so that your firm can not only succeed once but thrive into the future.
And the best part? It’s only $38/month to collaborate with other users on your most important projects. So go ahead, invest in your success by purchasing the right package for your team or, if you’d like to see how 3DX Cloud can work for you, simply sign up for a demo to see the synchronization first-hand.
