oneDCNS, as an advanced technology company with global reach, knows when to call in their partners from around the world for their expertise—in fact, they specialize in creating strategic and dynamic partnerships to meet the needs of their clients. And when your clients are dealing in naval defense, indeed it’s time to bring in the big guns for perfection in all processes. Headquartered in Paris, this longstanding company is a member of the United Nations Global Compact and is responsible for generating revenues of €3.1 billion annually. DCNS is in the business of making submarines and developing related systems, along with providing a wide range of services to naval bases.

twoIn keeping with this enormous responsibility, DCNS has just enlisted Dassault Systèmes to help them usher in the new future of solutions for naval defense—via the digital age—which as we now know offers many new options that include 3D modeling and 3D printing, helping to conceptualize new ideas and bring them to fruition. Also headquartered in Paris, Dassault Systèmes brings their 3DEXPERIENCE platform to the table for DCNS clients, as they work toward designing, engineering, construction and maintaining a ‘lifecycle’ of services for naval defense.

  • New generation submarines
  • Frigates
  • Patrol vessels
  • Aircraft carriers
  • Landing platform docks

“Agility—the capacity to provide timely, reliable and efficient answers to our clients’ demands while insuring world-class system integration and operational, cost-effective lifecycle solutions—is a significant competitive advantage,” Herve Guillou, President and Chief Executive Officer, DCNS, explained. “Our cooperation with Dassault Systèmes and their transformational marine solutions provide a practical roadmap to achieve our ambitious goals from now on.”

This partnership will allow DCNS to work with a client in meeting absolutely all their needs as products are conceptualized, engineered, built, maintained, and accompanied with other services. 3DEXPERIENCE is based on 3D design, analysis, simulation, and intelligence software in a collaborative, interactive environment.dcns

“The marine and offshore industry at large is going through a new dynamic of innovation as the open seas are becoming more strategic than ever. The DCNS decision to adopt the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to create a virtual twin of their products across all lifecycles will set a new level of performance in the naval sector,” Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes, commented.

“Our partnership with DCNS echoes our recent announcement with the world leader in cruise vessels Meyer Werft. Together we are inventing and putting in operation marine and offshore platforms that illustrate the industry of the future in a sector which calls for highly integrated systems to deliver unique experiences to its clients.”

threeThe collaborating of the two companies represents a logical and complementary partnership, offering comprehensive services for naval defense clients. DCNS’ transformation via the new platform from Dassault Systèmes is meant to, and surely will, improve operational performance and competitive edge on a global scale as they benefit from greater opportunities in 3D design, engineering, 3D CAD, modeling, simulation, data management and process management

Just last month, Dassault Systèmes showed off their 3DEXPERIENCE platform at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, sharing with everyone what amazing results customers will be able to look forward to, allowing for better quality in performance as well as streamlining and superior opportunities for innovation in digitization and 3D printing. They were able to highlight how much easy conceptualizing and teamwork in design becomes due to the virtual reality features, along with design, modeling, and testing capabilities, as well as a range of offerings that allow for better communication.
