DEVCON 2008 in Paris, France June 17-18
ST. PAUL, Minnesota, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Intercim LLC, a global leader in manufacturing and production operations management software solutions for advanced and highly regulated industries and Dassault Systemes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding focused on combined solutions for the aerospace and defense industry. The objective of this MOU is to provide the aerospace and defense industry with Intercim's manufacturing operations management solution integrated with Dassault Systemes' V6 platform.
While integration already exists between Dassault Systemes' V5 PLM platform and Intercim manufacturing execution systems (MES) solutions, Intercim and DS have decided to take a significant step forward to leverage the openness, online content and creation capabilities of Dassault Systemes' recently announced V6 platform. Intercim will provide customers with a complete manufacturing operations management system integrated with V6's single PLM platform for intellectual property management. This unique partnership will create a Web-based solution that offers the following value to customers:
- Visibility and traceability to all manufacturing stakeholders of shop floor execution, with a real-time 3D access to the "as-built" product information.
- Increased reactivity to plant-floor issues with real-time visibility across the extended enterprise of all production assets directly within the 3D production model,and with immediate corrective action validation in the virtual model prior to implementation.
- Increase knowledge sharing between the shop-floor and product and manufacturing engineering with a common view and understanding of the virtual product and production system.
"With the introduction of V6 in the market, Dassault Systemes provides to its manufacturing community customers an online collaborative solution to support PLM 2.0. PLM 2.0 is to PLM what Web 2.0 is to the Web. Everyone can connect to a single intellectual property PLM management solution to enrich and share the manufacturing assets of the enterprise," explained Pascal Lecland, vice president R&D, DELMIA, Dassault Systemes. "Intercim's partnership is key for Dassault Systemes and a major step forward for the aerospace and defense industry. Intercim solutions bring customer value through their ability to collect operational best practices and communicate shop floor non-conformances with the engineering and design teams. We are proud to expand our current partnership with a leading MES company, into DELMIA's first V6 partnership, in order to provide our customers with a unique PLM-MES solution."
Intercim president and CEO, John Todd says: "Intercim chose to tighten and to strongly commit to this partnership because Dassault Systemes is the undisputed leader both in terms of vision and products for PLM 2.0. We are looking forward to many, many common successes and are well underway to achieving this vision of manufacturing operations management and PLM with several of our joint customers."
