PLM-системы UGS и Dassault будут поддерживать систему Peak Performance Initiative от компании Microsoft

UGS, a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced its support of Microsoft’s Peak Performance Initiative at the 2005 Global Automotive Summit. The Peak Performance Initiative identifies four core areas that Microsoft and its industry partners are focused on driving insight and innovation throughout the automotive community.

UGS delivers solutions today that are driving customer success in each of the four core areas, by increasing innovation during product development cycles, reducing complexity on the shop floor, increasing supply chain visibility and leveraging design and manufacturing data for service.

“UGS and Microsoft have had a long standing relationship to deliver solutions focused on the four key areas highlighted as part of the Peak Performance Initiative. We utilize Microsoft platform technologies such as Microsoft SQL Server and Windows SharePoint Services to deliver Teamcenter-based PLM Solutions that are both easy to implement with a low total cost of ownership and enable customers to develop, deliver and maintain category-killer products,” said UGS Chairman, CEO and President Tony Affuso while addressing the audience at the Global Automotive Summit. “The combination of UGS’ applications on the Microsoft platform continue to gain acceptance as the best in breed PLM solutions.”

The Microsoft Peak Performance Initiative is designed to help the automotive community accelerate insight through advanced analysis services, drive innovation by allowing teams to better collaborate, and impact performance via increased visibility into operations across the manufacturing value chain. Based on extensive research and feedback from partners, customers and industry experts, Microsoft's Peak Performance Initiative provides an innovative and cost effective approach that allows automotive customers to take full advantage of their legacy investments while connecting key systems, people and organizations across the automotive supply chain to remove the barriers that stifle innovation and competitiveness.

“The automotive community comprises a diverse array of partners and suppliers that must cost-effectively collaborate to bring the latest innovations to market,” said Kyle Solomon, Worldwide Industry Manager, Automotive, Microsoft Corp. “One of the original pioneers in the PLM category, UGS has built an exceptional reputation in the automotive marketplace by connecting people with the processes that drive the product development process and consequently enable them to achieve peak performance.”

Dassault Systèmes (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSYPA) today announced its support of Microsoft’s Peak Performance Initiative at the 2005 Global Automotive Summit. The Peak Performance Initiative, developed by Microsoft and its industry partners, is designed to help manufacturers accelerate insight and innovation throughout the automotive community.

By deploying Dassault Systèmes’ software in conjunction with the Microsoft platform, the companies are focused on delivering greater customer value through easy-to-use solutions that reduce the time and cost involved in product development. Dassault Systèmes’ V5 PLM solutions – which enable companies to simulate products virtually in 3D from conception to maintenance across the extended enterprise – include CATIA for design, DELMIA for manufacturing process, and ENOVIA and SMARTEAM for resource management.

V5 PLM solutions from Dassault Systèmes have already enabled automotive companies to achieve significant results. DaimlerChrysler AG began using CATIA for its virtual product development in the late 1980s. First implemented in a pilot program on the Mercedes-Benz S Class in the body area, DELMIA improved manufacturing planning time by about 30 percent. In addition, DELMIA also helped DaimlerChrysler out in quality and cost.

With DELMIA, all development activities from process planning up to completion of the car can be validated in a 3D virtual environment. Users virtually define, optimize and simulate manufacturing process and resources as well as visualize workforce operability, enabling the company to dramatically reduce cost and identify and correct errors before physical production begins. As an added benefit, data from the simulations can be reused to author 3D electronic work instructions for the shop floor. Workers learn new tasks faster after seeing them simulated in 3D using DELMIA.

DaimlerChrysler has also reported efficiency and productivity gains for product conceptual design and packaging studies through its engineering initiatives and software technologies using Dassault Systèmes products via its IBM Product Lifecycle Management solutions. Using CATIA V5 DaimlerChrysler’s Technical Computer Center (TCC) has developed knowledge-driven applications for interior, chassis, powertrain and body-in-white domains. William Whedon, director, Product Development, Information Technology Management, DaimlerChrysler, said “The CATIA V5 knowledge infrastructure and parametric design functionality allow engineers to conduct quick design modification and validation, which helps us to save time and costs.”

“V5 PLM solutions fully integrated with Microsoft platforms enable automotive companies to reduce total cost of ownership and benefit from high and rapid return on investment,” said Joel Lemke, president and CEO of Enovia Corp. and general manager, PLM Americas, Dassault Systèmes. “Our PLM solutions provide value for a wide and varied installation base, which includes OEMs such as DaimlerChrysler and Toyota Motor Corp. as well as a wide range of suppliers.”

The Microsoft Peak Performance Initiative, announced in March 2005, is designed to help the automotive community accelerate insight through advanced analysis services, drive innovation by allowing teams to better collaborate, and impact performance via increased visibility into operations across the manufacturing value chain. Based on extensive research and feedback from automotive partners, customers and industry experts, the Peak Performance Initiative provides an innovative and cost-effective approach that allows automotive customers to take full advantage of their legacy investments while connecting key systems, people and organizations across the automotive supply chain to remove the barriers that stifle innovation and competitiveness.

“Dassault Systèmes is helping customers achieve peak performance by helping design and engineering teams work seamlessly, whether they’re around the block or half way around the world,” said Kyle Solomon, worldwide industry manager, Automotive at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft and Dassault Systèmes share a common vision for how automotive manufacturers can abbreviate the product development cycle, reduce costs, and help bring the latest innovations to light in a truly collaborative fashion.”
