Officials at Dassault Systèmes, the 3D Experience Company, announces that Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC), a world leader in the design, manufacture, and service of aircraft engines, has selected the 3D Experience platform to run its enterprise integrated product management process. A longtime customer of Dassault Systèmes’ design authoring and collaboration applications, P&WC has started “Phase One” of its enterprise PLM evolution. The focus of Phase One is on improving operational excellence, integrated process planning, quality, and requirements management.
“In the end, this is about transforming our business and improving our customers’ experience. Every second, a P&WC-powered airplane takes off or lands somewhere in the world and our goal is to ensure the highest quality, best service cost, and overall product value for those customers. Dassault Systèmes’ 3D Experience platform fits perfectly into that vision of a quality product and customer experience,” says Walter Di Bartolomeo, vice president, Productivity & Engineering, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “From both an operational perspective, as well as a product value perspective, we see that implementing the 3D Experience platform is good for the business. ENOVIA applications give us the ability to be more effective. And that gives us the capacity, capability and affordability to go and reinvest in new products and new services.”
Dassault Systèmes’ 3D Experience platform and its associated Enovia applications were successfully benchmarked against various other solutions and competitors. The enterprise platform and its openness to Pratt & Whitney Canada’s heterogeneous solution environment, including SAP and Microsoft Dynamics, featured highly in the final decision, as well as Pratt & Whitney Canada’s close working partnership with Dassault Systèmes.
In parallel with Phase One, P&WC has been working to define a blueprint for the next phase of PLM in a true enterprise-wide business transformation.
“We’re excited to be part of P&WC’s successful deployment of Phase One. But that’s just Phase One. We are committed to ensuring the success of all future phases in P&WC’s strategic integrated product management process evolution,” says Sylvain Laurent, executive vice president, Business Transformation, Dassault Systèmes.
