Dassault Systèmes announced that Embraer is deploying a complete 3D solution for the design and manufacturing of its Phenom and Legacy 500 executive jets at its Melbourne, Florida, U.S. and São José dos Campos, Brazil plants. Digital Factory is a 3D source for product information aimed to reduce design and manufacturing costs by creating a single set of plans, design models and work and product instructions, all integrated into a secure, collaborative platform. Working with Dassault Systèmes, Embraer launched two new design and manufacturing initiatives as part of its Phenom and Legacy 500 programs: Digital Factory (DF) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES). “Embraer is tapping into advanced technology solutions to help achieve significant savings by integrating key engineering, design and manufacturing operations into a single 3D model. These savings allow Embraer S.A. to re-invest resources in new industry opportunities and initiatives,” stated Marcelo Lemos, general manager, Latin America, Dassault Systèmes.
