Dassault Systèmes, a world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announce the launch of a new industry solution experience for aerospace and defense companies called “Winning Program.”  Aerospace and defense companies can configure the right concept for their customers and know from the earliest stages that they can deliver it on budget and on time.

“Winning Program” enables innovative A&D companies to effectively perform front end business activities defining new offers and/or win new business and comprehensively execute the requisite system engineering choices and associated trade studies. Companies who are bidding on new work can use “Winning Program” to manage their proposal and conceptual design processes.  Those who are internally proposing a new market offering, such as an airplane, can use it to manage their conceptual design process leading to Authority to Offer the new commercial item.

With exponential improvements in the level of engineering detail and shared knowledge available in the conceptual design phase, “Winning Program” can significantly improve adherence to program costs and schedules.  It provides a platform to optimize concept studies with more alternatives and more tradeoff studies, resulting in more accurate and realistic decisions.  Integrated program and change management processes manage requirement changes to drive consistency and reduce costs.  Ultimately, the solution enables companies to avoid risk by delivering a high fidelity proposal and the confidence they can succeed. In addition, it enables companies to capture all of the intellectual property created throughout the proposal phase to ensure that knowledge is not maintained only by individuals, but is captured as part of an integrated solution for reuse on future programs.
