It’s now almost 12 months since Dassault Système acquired IQMS, a leading provider of ERP software and real-time production monitoring for mid-market manufacturers.
We’ve watched with interest as IQMS’ EnterpriseIQ and MES system has been integrated into Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE universe, including rebranding the software suite as DELMIAWORKS.
Next came more and more information about the integration between Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS product, Dassault’s computer-aided design and engineering application, to deliver a ‘closed-loop’ manufacturing system, which aims to increase efficiency and visibility of manufacturing performance on the shop floor, encompassing design, production scheduling, manufacturing and real-time shop floor control.
SOLIDWORKS and DELMIAWORKS possess a large, common customer base. 25% of SOLIDWORKS customers are manufacturers.
On the flip side, around 600 IQMS customers (60%) also use SOLIDWORKS in their operation.
Taking into consideration the specific needs of mid-market plastic injection moulding and extrusion; metal stamping, fabrication and cutting; assembly; packaging; and die-cast manufacturing processes, DELMIAWORKS spans:
- Product design, prototyping and testing
- Bill of material (BOM) development
- Sales orders
- Material requirements
- Production scheduling
- Shop floor control
- Real-time production monitoring
- Quality control
- Warehouse management
- Shipment and fulfilment, amongst others
Manufacturers using both systems are able to jump seamlessly between applications. Documents and drawings produced in SOLIDWORKS can be linked to DELMIAWORKS’ records, which mean operators effectively work from a single application with complete end-to-end visibility.
DELMIAWORKS at 3DEXPERIENCE World
More details on this ever expanding design-to-manufacturing ecosystem will be available at the 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 conference which takes place at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee from 9-12 February.
In previous years, IQMS ran their own User Conference (called Pinnacle). In 2002, this will be fully incorporated into 3DEXPERIENCE World.
They’ll be plenty of opportunity for attendees to immerse themselves in the transformation which is taking place in the way we invent, design, produce and power experiences.
Experiences that are powering an ‘Industrial Renaissance’.
But more on that in future news articles.
On both Monday and Tuesday, attendees will able to see innovation keynotes focusing on 3DEXPERIENCE.WORK, SOLIDWORKS and DELMIAWORKS. That is an addition to plenty of opportunities to connect with a huge range of partners and resellers.
Attendees will also be able to access a host of technical training and hands-on sessions in the form of lecture-style breakouts, hands-on workshops, and panel discussion sessions covering subjects such as mechanical design, manufacturing, simulation and visualisation.
All told, there will be 66 hours of DELMIAWORKS targeted training at the event.
