Engineering design platform enables PSA Peugeot CitroŽn to reinforce zero-defect strategy

Dassault Systemes : 28 November, 2014  (Application Story)
PSA Peugeot CitroŽn is intensifying the use of Dassault Systèmes' Delmia digital manufacturing platform to help simplify the design process of its body-in-white division, specifically focusing on right-first-time robotics planning.
Powered by the 3DExperience platform, PSA Peugeot Citroën’s implementation now supports advanced robotics simulation, including feasibility and reachability studies and programs. This support of the earliest stages of production layout complements final assembly simulation, painting, powertrain and metal stamping.
 
In order to notably improve manufacturability of vehicle parts that include openings, panels, structures and underbodies, PSA Peugeot Citroën wanted tighter product and process integration, so that teams can detect and correct potential manufacturing issues early in the development cycle. Delmia Robotics simulation applications are bridging robot layout and their operation in production, dramatically simplifying space allocation, which helps to avoid potential errors and collisions that can lead to material waste and production rework. By integrating robotics simulation on the 3DExperience  platform, PSA Peugeot Citroën will increase its plant flexibility and strategy for modular design, by reinforcing standardisation and increasing production line re-use from one car development programme to the next.
 
“We decided to extend our use of the Dassault Systèmes portfolio to our body-in-white division to create a seamless, digital continuity between engineering and manufacturing which we believe is key to strengthen our overall business agility,” said Sébastien Gagnepain, Process and Digital Factory Coordinator, PSA Peugeot Citroën. “Using Dassault Systèmes’ 3DExperience platform for robotics, we will be able to reduce troubleshooting and cycle times by integrating the early stages of development. We are expecting significant productivity gains in tooling design, analysis time calculation and offline programming.”
 
“The synergies between engineering and manufacturing on a single, open and scalable platform are key to zero-defect approaches within today´s complexities of vehicle innovation,” said Olivier Sappin, Vice President, Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes.
