Product Design for Aerospace & Defense Suppliers

Product Design for Aerospace & Defense Suppliers

Given the number of companies involved in aerospace and defense programs (OEMs and many tiers of suppliers), the multi-disciplinary nature of the projects (requiring mechanical, electrical and software design), and the need for efficient information exchange, it is essential that companies can work with many different CAD formats. 

Our broad selection of data exchange tools supports vendor-neutral standard exchange formats, data translators, and CAD file conversion tools to accurately move data between systems.

Aerospace and defense OEMs and suppliers require the highest levels of performance, quality and reliability, and their products must adhere to stringent contract and regulatory requirements. 

Due to the increased demand for complex and highly customized products involving mechanical, electrical and software systems, the need for an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to product design is essential in order to reduce risk and increase confidence in product performance. To achieve this, OEMs and suppliers must collaborate and be able to exchange information through all phases of product development. 

Our product design solution includes technologies and utilities that streamline communication and collaboration between OEMs, suppliers and customers – even when they use different product development systems, or no CAD at all. We offer a broad selection of data exchange tools supporting vendor-neutral standard exchange formats, data translators and CAD file conversion tools to accurately move data between different systems.

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Aero Structures Design

Accelerate design productivity, from concept to detailed design, to analysis, to manufacturing and beyond. Enable more design iterations in less time, resulting in bringing a better product to market faster.

CAE Simulation

Predict part and process performance with a unified, shared 3D simulation platform. Accurately predict product performance and accelerate the simulation process for aerospace and defense product engineering teams.

Composite Design Integration

Automatically generate composite manufacturing data to drive automated cutting machines, laser projection systems, fiber placement machines, and tape laying machines, then share it downstream and across the enterprise.

Design for Additive Manufacture

Achieve design freedom. Convergent Modeling™ technology, generative design, and topology optimization technologies create stronger and lightweight designs that can only be manufactured using new techniques such as additive manufacturing.

Design Interoperability

Create increasingly complex products with integrated electronics by allowing designers of both systems to collaborate. Prevent conflicts and ensure alignment prior to design completion.

Design Validation

Quickly synthesize information, check designs for compliance to requirements, and make informed decisions using visual product analytics and validation tools.

Digital Mockup

Use real-time digital mockup tools to resolve design issues such as interferences and accessibility. Perform motion studies using the product's digital twin early in your product lifecycle.

Fastening & Joining Engineering

Efficiently author, validate, and communicate the joining requirements of complex assemblies with emphasis on fastening structures. Manage joint definition of mixed material structures to help meet schedule and cost targets.

Integrated BOM Management

Manage engineering BOM definitions, from simple CAD structures to complex product definitions. Enable up-front planning and master product definition, through design, development, manufacturing, and service.
