Deployment of the 3DEXPERIENCE® digital platform - ALTEN Group

Deployment of the 3DEXPERIENCE® digital platform

With its experience acquired in the aeronautics and automotive sectors, ALTEN is supporting a world leader in naval defence systems in the deployment of a collaborative software platform (Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE).

This cloud-based platform (combining 3D design, simulation analysis, life cycle management and industrialization) makes it possible to reduce the design and construction time of a new ship by converging methods and tools between the various sites (design office, shipyard, etc.), but also with industrial partners.
Its newly developed features facilitate the simultaneous design of the hull and compartments, an optimized catalogue to rationalize the number of items, and a single digital interface for all technical documentation.

In this context, ALTEN has taken action to initiate this project, which supports the digital transformation of the company’s core business:

  • Re-design of the digital mock-up (CAD) of a new generation frigate (AVEVA migration to Catia V6/3DEXPERIENCE)
  • Creation and implementation of all program metadata in the digital mockp-up (DMU)
  • Delivery of the project with an expected quality level
  • Performance improvement
  • Consulting activity to support the client’s teams to exploit the 3D EXPERIENCE solution

Currently applied to this new generation frigate program, our experience in this project is now used as a model in the transfer of CAD models, and as a support model for design teams in the appropriation of the solution.
