Dassault Systèmes and SIE Partner to Simplify the Certified Aircraft Cabin Completion Process

  • Partnership leverages Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SIE’s expertise in certification content and services
  • OEMs and completion centers can certify and deliver customized cabin interiors at reduced risk and cost for a competitive edge
  • Virtual technologies craft new dynamic between companies, supply chain, customers

LONG BEACH, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 26, 2017Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) (Paris: DSY) and SIE Inc. today announced that they have entered into a partnership to transform the cabin completion business serving commercial airlines, business aviation and VIP services. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and completion centers can certify and deliver customized cabin interiors at greatly reduced risk and cost, and enhance the passenger in-flight experience for a competitive edge.

The partnership leverages two of Dassault Systèmes’ industry solution experiences based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform – “ Passenger Experience” covering processes from initial customer interaction through design validation and verification, and on to marketing and sales, and “ License to Fly” to accelerate the certification process – along with SIE’s expertise in delivering certification content and services for cabin design and development projects.

The combined offering automates engineering, manufacturing and certification processes, from idea to delivery, while providing high-end visual assets for personalization and use by engineering, sales, marketing and training teams. This helps reduce the risk of surprise audits and costly mistakes discovered during production or delivery, aligns the sales process with customer expectations for the final product, and secures buy-in from airlines, private aircraft owners, and passengers.

“Companies seek to differentiate themselves in a highly competitive market with custom aircraft cabins that reflect demands for greater passenger comfort,” said Dr. Matt Creager, President, SIE. “Many OEMs struggle to profitably meet these demands due to the risk of delays and cost overruns. Our partnership with Dassault Systèmes simplifies and improves the process so that the highest customer expectations for the cabin can be realized and certified.”

“We have been working diligently to establish digital continuity from initial concept to entry into service and beyond for improved program performance. This approach also ensures quality, safety and compliance,” said Michel Tellier, Vice President, Aerospace & Defense Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “Our partnership with SIE allows us to marry the virtual world with essential content and know-how to greatly reduce the risk, time and cost for getting a cabin designed, produced and certified. Customers can virtually experience a cabin, say ‘that is what I want!’ and get it securely and affordably.”

The partnership was announced at the Aircraft Interiors Expo co-located with the APEX EXPO taking place in Long Beach, Calif., from Sept. 25-28, 2017, where Dassault Systèmes and SIE will be present at booth 902.
