A one platform strategy helps companies connect data, people, products and processes to align the value network and empower quicker and better decision-making. By providing fast and easy access to big data insights in an integrated environment, Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE® platform enables the MRO ecosystem to:
The stories below highlight how the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offered significant benefits for industry players to execute a smart, agile and sustainable aircraft maintenance strategy.
Eviation Aircraft wanted to design and build an all electric airplane for mid-range distances that is cost-effective and environmentally friendly on an aggressive time schedule by using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud.
Imagine flying on demand, from the nearest airfield, for the price of a train ticket. That’s the option that Omer Bar-Yohay, CEO of the electric aviation company Eviation Aircraft, wants for every traveler: a better regional travel experience that avoids congested roads by providing an affordable and ecofriendly air travel solution.
“We all struggle with transportation,” Bar-Yohay said. “Today, if we want to travel 800 kilometers and there aren’t any trains to take us to our destination, we are stuck in our cars for many hours. We want to change all that.”
Bar-Yohay’s solution? The Eviation “Alice,” a nine-passenger, 100% electric-powered plane with a cruising speed of more than 240 knots (approximately 280 miles per hour / 444 kilometers per hour).
“Because electric engines offer higher propulsion efficiencies and lower maintenance costs, they reduce the cost of flight by 90%,” Bar-Yohay said. “Electrification doesn’t only make us eco-friendly; it makes it possible for everyone to fly regional distances for an affordable fee.”
