Dassault Systèmes Articulates Interconnected Life-Science Vision

Dassault Systèmes 2021 Analyst Conference Event Brief

By: Sandra K. Rodriguez, Senior Industry Analyst and Daniel R. Matlis, President

Dassault Systèmes continued to articulate its interconnected Life-Science vision at the 2021 Analyst conference.

“In the experience economy, business science and innovation are all about relationships,” said Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer at Dassault Systèmes. “The real phenomenon of the platform is about building an interconnected continuous interactive loop with your value chain from design to user experience,” he added.

“We are not talking about upstream and downstream applications anymore, it’s a continuous flow of imagine, create, produce, advocate, value and use,” said Charlès.

While Axendia does not believe in force ranking vendors because there is no BEST (see: Who is the Best Technology Vendor?), Dassault Systèmes executives were the first to articulate their avant-garde vision to support the Life-Science value network from end to end.  This vision is backed by an impressive offering portfolio aimed at providing an interconnected and continuous interactive platform that supports the Life-Science value network from end to end.

Reinventing the Value Network with the Factory of the Future

The factory of the future goes beyond the traditional factory walls

By: Sandra K. Rodriguez, Senior Industry Analyst

The need for organizational visibility, control, and resilience has never been greater for the life sciences industry. Executives at forward-thinking companies are addressing the need to solve both present and future challenges. The increasing complexity of designing, sourcing, and manufacturing high-quality medical products under stringent regulations requires a digital factory that supports closed loop manufacturing across-the-product lifecycle. In short, a sustainable factory of the future is needed now.

The factory of the future goes beyond traditional factory walls; it requires digital transformation across the entire medical product value network. Axendia research indicates that 76 percent of digital transformation initiatives are being accelerated by “black swan” events. Digital transformation is a journey, not a project. Life science organizations that have embarked on this journey are modernizing manufacturing and reinventing their value networks.

Building the Factory of The Future, Today

Delivering high-quality, next-generation life-science products is not easy. Stakeholders expect high-quality, complex products manufactured sustainably under stringent regulations. The factory of the future supports closed loop manufacturing and workforce optimization by connecting the following technologies across the total product lifecycle:

  • Product Lifecycle Management
  • Enterprise Resource Planning
  • Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)
  • Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)
  • Modeling and Simulation

The demand for organizational visibility, control and collaboration to achieve resilience is a catalyst to modernization and digital transformation in the highly regulated Life-Science industry. With Medical device and diagnostic products are becoming increasingly complex; next generation products cannot be effectively manufactured in last generation factories using old processes! Manufacturing next generation devices requires a digital factory that supports closed loop manufacturing and workforce optimization across the product lifecycle.

Join Axendia’s Sandra K. Rodriguez, Market Analyst and Thomas Muth, Global Life Science Industry Director at Dassault Systèmes DELMIA on 02-SEP-2020 at 11AM Eastern to learn how Life-Science companies are realizing the art of the possible by modernizing manufacturing, reinventing their value networks and building the Factory of the Future, today.

In this webinar, we will discuss:
• The Factory of the Future – Fact, Not Fiction
• The Workforce of the Future
• How to Build Resilient Value Networks
• Digitally Transforming Manufacturing
• Digital Evidence and the Review of the Future
• Leveraging the Power of a Digital Twin

Dassault Systèmes Shifts Focus From Things to Life

2020 Analyst Conference Event Brief

By: Daniel R. Matlis, President

At the 2020 Dassault Systèmes Analyst conference, Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, presented his bold and audacious ambition for the next 10 years. “Dassault Systèmes will focus on developing its leadership in Life Sciences & Healthcare alongside two other strategic sectors of the economy: Manufacturing Industries and Infrastructure & Cities,” proclaimed Charlès. 

While this shift may be surprising to many, at Axendia, we have witnessed first-hand Dassault Systèmes’ commitment to pursue Life-Sciences with Mind, Body, and Soul for over a decade.  In 2014, I had the opportunity to Hover Through the Human Heart. In 2019, the Medidata acquisition provided The Missing Link in Dassault Systèmes Powerful Portfolio to Support the Life Sciences Industry

Under Charlès’ leadership, the company displays a rare culture focused on long term audacious goals, driven by unbridled passion yet measured by meticulous execution. Charlès has helped instill a culture of ongoing innovation to further consolidate Dassault Systèmes’ scientific capabilities and make science part of the company’s DNA.  

To achieve this goal, Dassault Systèmes (3DS) is shifting and will leverage the virtual twin experience as a new way of representing the world. Charlès laid out 3DS’s vision in a manifesto titled “Things to Life” where he explains: 

What is the difference between things and life? Life is not made of parts: the human body is one piece and hyper connected. Life doesn’t do standardization: it’s personalized design, production and usage. And life isn’t “used” but lived. Life is an experience. So, to improve life, we have to invent new ways of representing reality. We have to invent the virtual twin experience of life.

Using Requirements Engineering to Improve the Patient Experience

An Axendia Webinar Presented by Dassault Systèmes

Medical devices are increasingly complex, connected and integrated, and software is becoming key in delivering a high-quality patient experience and improving patient outcome.  As a result, the environment of care where these products operate are changing; with at-home devices and combination products are becoming more prevalent.

Medical device companies are also becoming more sophisticated in capturing more human factors requirements for the caregiver, the patient and the environment of care. Leading companies are broadening device requirements to consider all the stakeholders’ needs as well as building quality into the development process to prevent device failures and potential recalls.

Join Axendia’s President, Daniel R. Matlis and Sanjay Khurana, Director, Cyber / Electrical / Fluidic Systems as Dassault Systèmes on 28-JUL-2020 at 11AM ET for a discussion on how Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) brings together Requirements Development and Management facilitated by Requirements Planning, Traceability and Simulation to design products right the first time.

During this session we will discuss:

  • Accelerating new product introduction, reducing development time and cost, improving efficiency
  • Defining requirements right the first time
  • Designing products that support solutions experience
  • Moving from blockbuster products to precision and personalized medicine
  • Leveraging MBSE, modeling and simulation capabilities to deliver a high-quality patient experience and improved patient outcome
  • Quality Engineering, designing high quality-in vs testing poor quality-out
