Dassault Systèmes has reiterated its focus on supporting its customers, partners and communities worldwide during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“The steps we have taken in response to COVID‐19 are designed to promote safety for our employees, partners and clients with innovative solutions to help them work from anywhere with the full power of 3DEXPERIENCE collaboration,” says Bernard Charlès, vice chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes.
“Today we launched numerous new approaches to accelerate innovations in R&D, manufacturing engineering and logistics, by fully exploiting virtual twin experiences online,” Charlès adds. “Empowering our large base of 3D users to collaborate from home plays a significant role in their morale as they can continue their projects and learn together with a positive horizon.”
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud is fully operational, providing them with advanced remote work capabilities to organize, plan, track and execute project development remotely. In the safety of their homes, customers can continue to work with their data and maintain business, operational and digital continuity by extending their communities, project management and business to a virtual environment on the cloud.
Dassault Systèmes’ solutions based on Medidata platforms enable biopharmaceutical companies, academic researchers and startups to analyze and share data to foster scientific collaborative innovation and generate clinical trials results faster, as well as optimize their manufacturing processes to keep up with demand.
The company is working to deliver new solutions to the biopharma organizations at the core of this innovation to help accelerate their work. Already, the fluid simulation application SIMULIA XFlow enabled designers of Wuhan’s newly built Leishenshan Hospital in China to design and simulate its air supply and exhaust systems.
Dassault Systèmes has provided access to a 3D cloud‐based repository to secure customer data storage for their remote workers—connecting legacy data and users to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform—as well as scalable 3D cloud‐based collaboration with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for all users—including CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS and multi‐CAD.
Dassault Systèmes is leveraging best practices to help its value added resellers ensure continuity of projects and services. Technical Services teams are fully operational and equipped to work remotely, to help partners deliver milestones with minimal impact.
3DEXPERIENCE Education delivering online collaborative learning experiences to enrich our users’ certification and curricula during work slowdowns. Learning experiences are being systematically integrated in Dassault Systèmes’ cloud offers so that customers’ employees can be quickly autonomous to work from home on new projects, and learn new skills to increase the agility of a company when it returns to full production after the crisis abates.
3DEXPERIENCE platform customers can continue their projects with full online collaboration with their students.
Customers not yet on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can accelerate their transition through pilot projects, governmental initiatives to deploy the platform at a national scale, and full online enablement of teachers.
The company is working with its professional education partners to deliver training programs for professionals to increase their employability and be a driving force of transformation after the crisis.
Open Innovation aims to solve issues such as 3D printing spare parts or accelerating the design for manufacturing of ventilators/respirators with an open community of volunteers, engineers, designers, manufacturers, experts, scientists, makers and fabbers.
“Open COVID‐19 Community” on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform gathers 3DEXPERIENCE Lab members from the US, the UK, India, France, and the Netherlands to work with the startups.
