YOKOHAMA, JAPAN – Zuken has signed an agreement with Dassault Systèmes to develop solutions for an end-to-end system design and manufacturing process enabling customers to manage electronic engineering information with mechanical and software engineering data and configurations on Dassault's 3DExperience modeling platform.
The joint solution will provide comprehensive electronic library and design data management capabilities within the 3DExperience platform. Dassault and Zuken customers will be able to capitalize on an interdisciplinary product lifecycle management product that will provide cross-discipline systems engineering and traceability, global systems partitioning and navigation, and cross-discipline collaboration.
Electronics engineers connected to the platform can now have traceability – from requirements to deliverables and test results – across all engineering disciplines, instant visibility of change impacts, context and semantics across disciplines, as well as business process analytics and engineering intelligence.
“We are seeing substantial demand from common customers for an integration of our DS-2 electronic lifecycle management environment into Dassault Systèmes’ 3DExperience platform,” said Kazuhiro Kariya, CTO and managing director, Zuken. “Through our integration with the 3DExperience platform and the resulting comprehensive capabilities on a library, design data and configuration and change management level, Zuken and Dassault Systèmes have a compelling solution to address the urgent need for an integral electromechanical engineering approach, which is fueled by the growing importance of electronic and software content in today’s product development process.”
“We welcome Zuken’s initiative to integrate their popular electronic engineering technology with our 3DExperience platform,” said Olivier de Percin, vice president, High-Tech Industry, Dassault. “This solution will enable our joint customers to significantly advance their systems engineering and cross-discipline collaboration practices.”
Zuken will directly market and maintain the integration of DS-2 into Dassault’s 3DExperience.
