Real-time performance tracking
By Alison Dunn
Dassault Systèmes recently launched its latest aerospace & defense industry solution experience, “Co-Design to Target.” “Co-Design to Target” is designed to ensure a program is delivered on time, on budget, and on objective. It offers a real-time view of program status that connects the dots between all processes in a program’s execution. “Co-Design to Target’s” program governance capability not only coordinates program execution but inherently tracks progress against all key criteria including cost, schedule, workload, performance, risk and opportunity. It also offers a real-time view of an aircraft design’s performance that fundamentally changes the way aircraft are engineered. “Co-Design to Target” provides designers and architects the ability to design not only in the context of traditional digital mock-up (DMU), but also in the context of a new Functional Mock-Up (FMU) that incorporates a design’s behavior. It delivers a more complete and true-to-life program definition to orchestrate requirements, systems and structures, such that all engineers work in harmony. Finally, it has integrated engineering value streams, from design and simulation to part fabrication planning and resource programming preparation activities. “Co-Design to Target’s” mission is to design components and sub-systems to reach their specifications quicker, and prevent late issues that may have dramatic impact on program cost and schedule.
