Dassault Systèmes announces that Texelis, a France-based developer and supplier of axles and powertrains for heavy-duty vehicles used in public transportation and defense, has completed the deployment of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to improve its technological innovation in design to service.
Texelis is using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to digitally support its global product management. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform integrates design, engineering, simulation and manufacturing applications, and streamlines collaboration between teams, customers and suppliers. Texelis will increase its ability to develop products that can be configured and adapted for underground railways, trams, buses, cars, trucks and armored vehicles—even for prototypes or small series—and extend its product lifecycle management processes to maintenance, repairs and refurbishment services.
“We needed the agility to quickly respond to bids for different categories of products with more relevant offerings that demonstrate the added value of our services,” says Charles Antoine de Barbuat, president, Texelis. “This is what the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables. We will support our digital engineering and manufacturing with improved collaboration and standardization. In just 7.5 months, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to migrate all our legacy data to the platform and have it fully operational for 140 employees.”
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables product portfolio development planning, efficiency, quality and diversity. Texelis gains agility during the development phase to prevent risk, quickly validate and optimize new products, and deploy production suited for product variability.
“This project demonstrates that agility, innovation and fast deployment are key competitive advantages,” says Laurence Montanari, vice president, Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “By using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Texelis will share, improve and extend knowledge to design, engineer, validate, manufacture and deliver to its customers’ satisfaction.”
