Alstom is leveraging the high-end 3D visualization applications of the “ Virtual Garage” industry solution experience to present realistic virtual models of trains that correspond to Trenitalia’s needs for regional and suburban transport. Trenitalia can visualize and configure in real time detailed digital variants of full-fledged trains before they are built, such as different combinations of train lengths, passenger seats, bicycle racks, colors, materials, logos and decals. Alstom can ensure that the trains it delivers correspond to specifications that the customer validated virtually, instead of relying on paperwork and physical prototypes.
“When Trenitalia wanted to offer more comfortable, spacious, brighter and safer trains to its passengers, we decided to innovate beyond our traditional design and engineering processes,” said Luigi Lugaro, PLM & I4.0 Italy Project Manager, Alstom. “Dassault Systèmes enables us to respond to increasing challenges in mobility with the first ever train configurator to be used at an industrial level in the railway sector.”
After the digital train is fully configured, the capabilities of “Virtual Garage,” which have already transformed product configuration, retail showrooms and event reveals for the automotive segment, also convert Alstom’s design and engineering data into high-quality visual assets that Trenitalia can use for its sales and marketing campaigns.
“The application of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to marketing and sales in the rail industry is another leap forward in reducing the distance between the virtual world and the real world to zero,” said Olivier Sappin, Vice President, Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “High-impact virtual product experiences offer companies like Alstom and Trenitalia the flexibility and agility to create differentiated, real passenger experiences in the digital economy.”
