Build to Operate

Drive manufacturing execution efficiency to reach optimal production rates.

Over the next decades, airline fleet modernization and aircraft retirement will continue to feed the growth of commercial aviation. This drives the need for continuous improvement of both new and existing production lines.

Build to Operate built on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, accelerates meeting production targets and increases manufacturing capacity. The solution offers aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers the ability to implement lean practices, integrate new technologies and meet demand without sacrificing either quality or schedule.

For Aerospace and Defense companies, Build to Operate, based on DELMIA® Apriso, offers Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) capabilities to monitor, control and validate all aspects of manufacturing with digital precision throughout their supply chain on a global scale.
