Snecma enables collaborative design

Snecma, a manufacturer of military and civil aircraft engines, has selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

The aerospace manufacturer will use the 3DEXPERIENCE to create a more unified, flexible and collaborative production environment for its new generation of engines.

This will enable Snecma, which is part of high tech Safran group, to improve the production process of its engine parts.

Manufacturing engineers from its methods division will now have digital access to information to define the processes and operations needed to manufacture each primary engine part.

The company’s use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform replaces ten legacy systems to become the backbone for all engineering and manufacturing domains.

“Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including its CATIA, ENOVIA and DELMIA applications, provides us with an innovative new way of working in which our methods and design people share the same tools, processes and information as opposed to working as separate silos,” said Yvonic Vincent, IT project manager for data industrialisation at Snecma. “Our production sites each previously worked with different tools and methods and did not efficiently communicate with one another.

“Having the 3DEXPERIENCE platform as our one secure collaborative environment, ensures that when the design offices make changes, it is only submitted once in the system and everyone in our production offices have immediate, secure access. This should result in a drastic reduction in errors.”

“Snecma’s new family of engines is considered a major innovation. Having digital continuity between the design and methods offices avoids the time-consuming task of recreating information for production,” said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, Industry and Marketing, Dassault Systèmes. “Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform will help Snecma to manage the increasing workload generated by new engine programs and use its entire set of data throughout enterprise processes, to make the right decisions for its business.”

Snecma’s deployment plan is to implement the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on its four French sites within the next three years, followed by its sites in Mexico and China.
