The Dassault Systèmes PLM Solutions package, developed for the Falcon 7X, introduced the virtual development platform to the aviation industry. It allowed partners and suppliers from around the world to design a new product - concurrently and in real time - without physically leaving their workplace.

Based on advanced 3D tools such as CATIA V5/V6 and Enovia PLM, the virtual platform fully digitizes the entire Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) process from conception and production to maintenance and recycling, using a common, constantly-updated digital mock-up.

This unified data management approach makes it possible to apply ‘zero mock-up’ and ‘zero prototype’ concepts. This guarantees reduced development cycles and tooling/prototyping costs, improves quality and virtually eliminates assembly and rework issues.
PLM incorporates our design, production and support phases for all aircraft structures and systems. For our next SMS aircraft program, we will extend the process to software and onboard systems.
