3D EXPERIENCE: Harmonizing New World Technologies

Issue 110

In the 18th and 19th centuries, with the effect of inventions and the use of steam power in manufacturing, a new period called the Industrial Revolution began. Manufacture-based industry started to get stronger with the contribution of software solutions in the middle of the 20th century. Software solutions, taking part in the market with simple CAD software at the beginning of the 1980s, made headway with digital imaging technology at the end of the 1980s. However, issues such as data synchronization, CAD data and document management, change management, project management, quality management and variant management, encountered in companies especially with a large number of CAD software users created serious problems and led to extremely slow and high-cost production. Just in those years, a new understanding and software solutions in parallel with this understanding emerged. This understanding, called PLM (Product Lifecycle Management), gave a new impulse to the industry in terms of process, cost and production. This system, covering the users and suppliers of large companies, started to be used across the world in a short time with its fast, low-cost approach and providing data pollution control and high coordination.

Afterwards, in the first quarter of the 21st century, Industry 4.0 emerged as a technology breakthrough, and 3DEXPERIENCE, beyond PLM, took its place in the global market as a brand new platform based on work experiences and provided social cooperation. 3DEXPERIENCE is a business experience platform designed based on the experience of 12 different industries. (Space and Defense, Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Financial and Business Services, High-Tech, Industrial Equipment, Life Sciences, Marine and Overseas Industry, Natural Resources, Transportation, Consumer Goods and Retail, Consumer Packaged Goods and Retail, Energy, Process and Utilities). It offers numerous advantages: with its user login panel, each user can operate as per his/her authorizations, high level information security is provided, the business activity can be viewed real-time in the system and can be edited instantly by other authorized users, data can be managed from anywhere in the world and location-independent project continuity is ensured.
