Design to Manufacturing with 3DEXPERIENCE

Product development has historically involved two divided processes: first, designing a product, and then manufacturing it.

The use of separate, non-integrated CAD (design) and CAM (manufacturing) tools to develop products has created a communications barrier between design and manufacturing, resulting in cost, time, and quality issues.


Our manufacturing solutions will provide you with:

  • Technology that communicates product and manufacturing information effectively in 3D.
  • A manufacturing planning process linked to product design and change management.
  • Solutions to enable design and manufacturing teams to work concurrently — from ERP to the shop floor. Monitor, track, trace and communicate business and manufacturing activities and data throughout the supply chain.

Manufacturing Issues

The typical Manufacturing issues that our clients have to deal with include:

Our engineers and production teams need to work more interactively and solve manufacturing challenges faster.

Design changes are hard to communicate to manufacturing, our work instructions are unclear and need to be managed more effectively.

We need to reduce costs and adopt a lean manufacturing strategy.

We need a a centralized, design to manufacturing lifecycle model for engineering and manufacturing to collaborate and ensure quality parts are being produced.

Better Communication

Manufacturing instructions are in 3D to ensure that the production team receives the latest and most accurate data


With 3DEXPERIENCE Works Communication Roles you can provide product and manufacturing information (PMI) directly in 3D, bypassing time-consuming 2D processes, and eliminating potential problems.

Using Simulation Roles designers will verify designs before moving onto production, and with revision control ensure that you have the right version.

Companies embracing model-based definition methodologies report savings in multiple areas, including a reduction in manufacturing error, a decrease in scrap and rework costs, and lower procurement costs for purchased parts.

Product Lifecycle Management

3DEXPERIENCE will help with your Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) and BOM Management

3DEXPERIENCE Product Lifecycle Roles

Bring together the Manufacturing Process Plan, Work Instructions and MBOM making them interdependent and automatically synchronized as changes occur.

You can eliminate time-consuming manual processes and costly EBOM/MBOM conflicts, as well as improve efficiency by synchronizing process plans, MBOMs and work instructions.

Bringing complex products to market and maintaining them through their life is a multi-step process.

With 3DEXPERIENCE Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP), product teams can define manufacturing processes at the same time and at multiple plants, therefore bridging the gap between engineering and manufacturing.

Production Facility Optimization

Simulate and optimize your production facilities with FlexSim software.

FlexSim allows you to model your systems with easy to use tools and in-depth analytics so that you can test "what if" scenarios and make smart optimizations to maximise your efficiency.

FlexSim comes with all the proven benefits of discrete-event simulation—but with the added bonus of highly realistic, immersive 3D graphics. The look of FlexSim’s 3D models help you emulate a real system, making it more intuitive to see and understand what’s going on.

Upgrade to DELMIA Manufacturing

DELMIA transforms the way companies optimize, orchestrate, and execute their value networks, from suppliers, to manufacturers, to logistics and transportation providers, to service operators and workforces.

The manufacturing industry is undergoing a state of change, considering their need for greater insight into their business, and greater ability to react quickly to changes both internal and external to their operations, more companies are looking to digitise their processes and procedures.
