Embraer is deploying a 3D solution from Dassault Systemes for the design and manufacture of its Phenom and Legacy 500 jets at its plants in Melbourne, Florida, and Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil.

Digital Factory is a 3D source for product information aimed to reduce design and manufacturing costs by creating a single set of plans, design models and work and product instructions, all integrated into a secure, collaborative platform.

With growing market interest in executive jet purchases, Embraer required flexible technology to support an agile manufacturing operation that responded quickly to market changes, while ensuring work was done in compliance with industry requirements.

Embraer’s business challenge was to create a single PLM platform for its manufacturing and shop-floor operations, and to move all shop-floor data from a paper to an online environment.

Using CATIA and DELMIA for virtual design, production and manufacturing, Embraer has a 3D platform, Digital Factory, for process planning and detailing, workload balancing, costing, cycle time calculations, as well as a new 3D process for design validation and optimisation.

A 3D master source for product information known as ’Model-Based Definition’ is used by workers on the manufacturing shop floor to access design, data and work instructions with personal and tablet computers.

Enovia’s collaborative platform helps in the process planning and manufacturing simulation of aircrafts, with final plans published in 3DVIA and delivered online for use by shop-floor workers as well.

With the development of a new, common architecture, Dassault Systemes paved the way to integrate an MES solution that allows shop-floor workers and suppliers across many locations to access the latest 3D models and instructions real time, hence ensuring the accuracy of the final product and the set of instructions.
