Manufacturers To Spend US$2.6bn On Simulation Software By 2030

Manufacturers to Spend US$2.6bn on Simulation Software by 2030

Simulation software acts as an insurance policy against costly mistakes because it enables manufacturers to understand how a product or component will behave before it’s put into use or how it will affect the production line. Global tech market advisory firm ABI Research forecasts that manufacturer’s spend on simulation software will surpass US$2.6 billion in 2030. Spending will accelerate over the forecast period (growing by CAGR 7.1% between 2022 and 2030) as the user base of simulation software expands in aerospace, automotive, heavy machinery, and the consumer-packaged goods sectors.

“In the past, manufacturers would create prototypes and test under certain conditions. Simulation software provides more flexibility by enabling manufacturers to examine how, for example, components in aircrafts and automobiles respond to heat and vibration, or how to optimize the layout of a printed circuit board in an electronic device. Also, manufacturers’ production lines are moving from batch to continuous manufacturing, so they need the ability to anticipate and alleviate bottlenecks relating to switchovers,” explains Michael Larner, Principal Analyst, Industrial & Manufacturing at ABI Research.

Simulation software solutions from the likes of Siemens, Dassault Systèmes, and Hexagon help manufacturers not only to create robust products but also expand usage of simulation software by specialists as well as individuals in product development and on the factory floor. Simulating software now supports a wide number of decision makers, such as plant managers, systems engineers, and maintenance teams.

However, vendors of simulation software for industrial applications face some challenges. “There is also a persistent tribal knowledge within some facilities where staff is hostile to change and so suppliers will need to overcome their lack of trust in simulation results. Suppliers will also need to work with their customers to understand the performance parameters and the acceptable tradeoffs in different verticals so that findings are based on reality and users trust the results,” Larner concludes.


Dassault Systèmes, SIMTech To Promote Industry Digital Transformation And Innovative Manufacturing Capabilities

Dassault Systèmes, SIMTech To Promote Industry Digital Transformation And Innovative Manufacturing Capabilities

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.”

World Cities Summit 2018: Dassault Systèmes Signs MoU For Future Development Of Padang Pariaman Smart City Implementation Project

World Cities Summit 2018: Dassault Systèmes Signs MoU For Future Development Of Padang Pariaman Smart City Implementation Project

Singapore: Dassault Systèmes and the District Government of Padang Pariaman signed today a memorandum of understanding, utilising the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for future development of the “Padang Pariaman Smart City Implementation Project”, at the World Cities Summit 2018.

The partnership leverages Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCity solutions to support the digital transformation of the District Government’s various portfolios for document and project management within local government agencies.

Padang Pariaman, Indonesia, is home to seventeen districts in West Sumatra. In recent years, it has successfully modernised its agricultural system, producing superior agricultural commodities while supporting the growth of urban centres.

The leaders of Padang Pariaman are now looking to establish the regency as a smart city, sustainable and livable with balanced rural-urban development. The partnership will bring to the regency Dassault Systèmes’ technological expertise and experience that have proven crucial in smart city projects in cities like Singapore or Rennes, France.

“We are seeing increasing internet and smartphone penetration in the population due to urbanisation in our regency and it is vital for us to drive IoT technology adoption at the public policy level to connect with our people and understand their needs,” said Mr. Drs. H. Ali Mukhni, Regent of Padang Pariaman.

“Smart city management is about understanding the local character of the city in relation to its environment and being able to customise the technology for these unique requirements. The collaborative aspect of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform makes it the perfect fit,” continued Masaki Sox Konno, Managing Director, Asia Pacific South, Dassault Systèmes.
