Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Siemens PLM Software enables the complete "digital twin" – digital thread, providing customers with unprecedented product development tools. We provide completely integrated MCAD, ECAD, CAE and PLM to ensure the digital twin's integrity.
Explore the key features of this solution.
Accelerate innovation with best-in-class 3D product design software that enables rapid and accurate modeling of aerospace and defense product geometry and PMI definition. Include CAE capabilities to reduce design-analyze cycles.
Design high-quality aerospace and defense subsystems and components while embracing the CAD diversity. Leverage a standardized CAD neutral format coupled with the ability to apply PMI regardless of CAD origin.
Design innovative airframe structures using intuitive features specifically developed for the complexities of machined airframe parts like bulkheads, skins and sheet metal components.
Accelerate accurate and associative toleranced definitions of A&D 3D component geometry and subsystem assemblies with 3D PMI for easier and more integrated consumption downstream in manufacturing and assembly.
Improve A&D subsystem and component derivative design productivity and reduce cost through re-use of design and process knowledge. Reuse components that already have PMI applied.
Demand for new aerospace and defense products continues to rise. Customers require the highest levels of performance, quality and reliability, and aerospace and defense products must adhere to stringent contract and regulatory requirements. The aerospace and defense global design and manufacturing supply chain must solve significant design and collaboration challenges while at the same time being under great pressure to meet these demands with products that get to market faster. Ensuring proper authoring of product 3D definition and consumption of that definition is key to a globally distributed product development environment.
A complete digital twin providing a virtual representation of the product, its performance and support are essential to reducing program schedules and development costs. This produces a complete answer to the “what” question. But of potentially even greater importance is to answer the “why” question. The digital thread enabled by Siemens PLM Software provides the compete traceability enabling the answer to “why”.
