SINGAPORE: Dassault Systèmes has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, A*STAR Research Entities (“SIMTech”) for future collaboration in capability building programmes to promote digital transformation in Singapore’s manufacturing sector. The agreement was signed during SIMTech’s MPTC (Manufacturing Productivity Technology Centre) Annual Conference 2018 on October 5, 2018, aimed at promoting digital transformation and adoption of ‘smart factory’ technologies amongst Singaporean manufacturers.
The programmes will be deployed through the Model [email protected] The Model [email protected] is an actual production environment that allows for experiential experimentation and learning of manufacturing system technologies. It provides a platform for companies to learn, experiment and co-create new technologies for the next-generation factories. Through the partnership, the Model [email protected] will leverage Dassault Systèmes’ industry solution experiences based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including digital continuity for manufacturing and the creation of the factory 3DEXPERIENCE twin.
Digital continuity with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform will enable full traceability of the manufacturing operations of the Model [email protected] from planning, monitoring to optimisation. VR (Virtual Reality) capabilities will enable remote monitoring and visit of the Model Factory, allowing real-time decision and collaboration.
The creation of a 3DEXPERIENCE twin of Model [email protected] provides a single source of data across all applications, enables simulation of behaviour of the full production line, and delivers reliable, actionable real-time information and seamless communication throughout the factory.
Through experiential learning with Dassault Systèmes solutions at the Model [email protected], Singaporean manufacturers will gain insights into industrial processes inspired by world innovation leaders.
Masaki Sox Konno, managing director Asia Pacific South, Dassault Systèmes, said, “Beyond providing the advanced technologies for innovation, we see capability building for the industry as the bedrock for effective digital transformation. Through this partnership with SIMTech, we are glad to have the opportunity to provide the Singapore manufacturing industry with digital solutions to test, learn and enable their transformation towards the next generation of factories.”
Dr Lim Ser Yong, executive director of SIMTech, “We are continually looking to leverage global best practices to complement the core Manufacturing Control Tower (MCT) Technology of SIMTech to promote digital transformation in the manufacturing sector. By enhancing the MCT Platform of the Model [email protected] with Dassault Systèmes’ industry solutions, we believe Singaporean manufacturers will elevate their digital capabilities to thrive in Industry 4.0.”
