Consumer Products and Retail Industry Requirements

3DEXPERIENCE solutions allow Consumer Products and Retail Industry companies to:

Go from Concept Design to Finished Product

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS offers an integrated solution for concept design to manufactured product. Today, developing consumer products requires tools beyond the ability to generate great looking designs—they also must perform properly and be less expensive to manufacture.

Work Seamlessly with Your Design Teams

The 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS portfolio of products is comprised of complementary tools that guarantee designs created in any application can be opened, edited, and updated, ensuring that no time or effort is lost when moving from design to simulation and manufacturing.

Collaborate and Share Your Designs

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS delivers a design experience focused on creating innovative products in a connected and truly collaborative environment, with solutions that help you develop, review, and select concepts before committing to detailed design and manufacturing.

Prototype Ideas Into Production

Use advanced manufacturing 3D printing and 3D scanning to go from the design studio to the factory floor in a fraction of the time it takes other development processes. Produce consumer ready parts for realistic product tests.

Consumer Products and Retail Industry Design & Verification

Drive innovation and connectivity with 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS software

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS® solutions provide a powerful tool set that bridges the gaps between industrial design and manufacturing. By providing powerful sketching tools and advanced surfacing capabilities, you can transition easily from design to finished product faster and with better product performance.

Consumer Products and Retail Industry Product Lifecycle Management

Communicate and collaborate with your team and suppliers

Break down barriers within teams and suppliers with a single centralized Bill of Materials (BOM) from any CAD model.

Reduce the time and expense required to manage, archive, and track design documentation and cost-effectively automate documentation to securely archive and organize multiple versions of projects.

Consumer Products and Retail Industry Manufacturing

Manage the production of your design with leading ERP and machining solutions

Get to market faster with DELMIAWorks end-to-end ERP System developed with a “shop floor first” focus to help mid-market manufacturers increase efficiency and visibility of performance on the plant floor.

Plus DELMIA Machining and Robotics solutions enables programmers to cut down programming time significantly (by over 40%) with powerful automation and knowledge reuse capabilities.

Go further with TriMech Group Solutions

The TriMech Group provides additional technology solutions from training and services to hardware and manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing

Our advanced manufacturing solutions, 3D printing and 3D scanning allow automotive manufacturers to:

Aesthetic and Function Testing: Industrial designers, mechanical engineers, packaging designers, graphic artists and marketing staff all use prototypes to understand a product’s aesthetic and functional appeal. 3D printing gives your idea the speed to match its brilliance.

3D Print Concepts: From scale models to product concepts, additive manufacturing helps designers shape the way consumer products are imagined and made.

Small Production Runs and Product Customization: Tailor products to a specific region or market, while keeping customization in sync with the rest of product development.

Enterprise Solutions

We partner with businesses to help them develop processes and people and to implement the right choice of systems to realise their vision.

This process is built on discussion and common understanding, we take the time to understand all of your requirements before making recommendations that will enable you to benefit from a return on investment in a scalable, affordable and measurable process.

Primarily we implement solutions from the Dassault Systèmes portfolio of products and solutions, including: CATIADELMIAENOVIASIMULIA and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
