Our Alliances: Dassault Systemes
Enhancing product development efficiency and effectiveness
Deloitte and Dassault Systemes are helping major manufacturers enhance product development efficiency and bring innovative products to market by increasing collaboration across multi-discipline product development teams. The alliance combines Dassault Systemes' leadership in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software and Deloitte's 15 years of deep experience in applying lean principles to complex product development processes and implementing PLM software to enable the processes.
Today's product development teams are often cross functional including external partners that may be scattered across the globe. Effective product development in this environment requires lean product development processes and a PLM platform that makes it easy to share and access information from anywhere. Dassault Systemes ENOVIA Version 6 (V6) provides an immersive, real-time 3D environment designed for secure collaboration and global sharing of intellectual property (IP). Deloitte practitioners trained in ENOVIA V6 combine this PLM technology with Deloitte’s predefined PLM process models that incorporate 15 years of leading practices, lean product development principles, industry sector knowledge and domain experience to provide high value to clients.
Deloitte brings leading industry depth and a breadth of services that can help increase shareholder value by linking PLM processes and technology to business objectives and measurable business results. Our alliance with Dassault Systemes leverages the following Deloitte capabilities that can increase shareholder value:
