Airbus partners with Dassault Systems to establish a new ecosystem for the European aviation industry


Toulouse - Airbus and French software company Dassault Systems will work together on the implementation of collaborative 3D design, engineering, manufacturing, simulation, and intelligence application fields.

Airbus has signed a five-year MOA (Memorandum of Agreement) to take its digital transformation a step forward. Airbus explained the goal of the cooperation with Dassault Systems as setting a new foundation for a new European industrial ecosystem in aviation.

Under the agreement, Airbus will use Dassault's "3DEXPERIENCE" platform to integrate DDMS (Digital Design, Manufacturing, and Services) to all Airbus divisions and product lines from design to operations.

As a parallel development process rather than a sequential development, DDMS helps the industrial manufacturers in designing new products faster and cheaper while increasing customer satisfaction and creating new business models.

With the help of Dassault Systems' "3DExperience" platform, and DDMS integration to its all divisions and production lines, Airbus aims to co-design and develop the next generation of aircraft by saving from the cost and time.
